Alex Zafran

Where do you currently work?
I work as a Senior Consultant & Business Development Lead at Aurora Energy Advisors, a boutique firm that manages energy costs for real estate owners and property management companies throughout the U.S.

How long have you been on the NGSC for?
I found my way onto the NGSC through the old fashioned way – b’shert – when a colleague introduced me to HFLS Board Member Ellen Braitman. I served as a NGSC member since 2016 and as former NGSC Co-Chair from 2018 – 2021. 

Why did you join the Next Gen Steering Committee?
Before HFLS, I never encountered an organization that blended financial empowerment with Jewish values. I was not only moved by the mission, but also by how tangible HFLS’ work is and its capacity to change livelihoods and businesses.

Where did you go to college and what did you study?
I graduated from The George Washington University with a Bachelor’s in Classical Studies and was selected as the University’s Student Commencement Speaker.

What is one interesting/fun fact about yourself?
I love participating in Spartan races and other fitness races across the country.
