Alex Metzger comes from a family tree of successful entrepreneurs with his family having owned multiple meat packing plants from the 1950s-1990s. As big box retailers began offering more groceries, at lower prices, and lesser quality, the family made the decision to close the meat packing plants as they no longer were profitable enough to be worth the hassle. Today, Metzger has a passion for helping small to mid-sized companies, communities, & nonprofit organizations create economic growth because he saw firsthand how quickly markets can change and understands how leaders must constantly adapt to stay competitive.
Metzger Co-Founded Next Move Group, LLC, in 2014. He is responsible for ensuring quality controls for our executive search processes are sound and grows our brand in the Midwest. Under his leadership, Next Move Group has conducted more than 100 successful executive searches and has serviced over 500 clients from coast to coast and international clients from Germany, Brazil, Canada, and Israel.
In 2020, Metzger invented Next Move Group’s membership program “The Movement” which led Next Move to increasing revenue 40% for three consecutive years. Due to this growth, Metzger decided in 2022 to give up his day-to-day duties running the company to become a passive investor.
Metzger is a graduate of the University of Kentucky with a degree in Communications.
Outside of work Metzger is an avid golfer, even winning the 2021 Missouri Athletic Club’s Golf Club Championship in St. Louis. Metzger enjoys spending time with his son James and wife Firth. Interestingly, Metzger lives in the outfield of Busch Stadium in “One Cardinal Way” a residential building developed by the St. Louis Cardinals.
