Phaxis Spotlight: Alex Roberto

Sharing is caring!

We had the opportunity to sit down and speak with Alex Roberto. Alex serves as the Managing Director and Solutions Lead for the Professional Services division of Phaxis. A 20-year veteran of the banking industry, Alex brings industry expertise to the ongoing battle against financial crime.


1. What is your professional background?


I’ve spent the last twenty years leading large and complex business units within the Top 10 U.S. Banks, scaling operations to drive compliance and efficiency by streamlining processes, implementing automation, redesigning operating models and delivering on C-level strategic initiatives.


My last role was leading Commercial KYC operations and Client Service for a large bank. I am a CAMS-certified professional with lots of passion for protecting our people and institutions from the threat of financial crime.


2. What brought you to Phaxis?


What drew me to Phaxis is the great people, strong culture and opportunity to help our clients solve big and complex problems. The firm has a stellar reputation in the industry and has filled nearly 100,000 roles across multiple industries in the last 20 years.


3. How is Phaxis different and how do you add value for clients?


As a premier consulting and staffing firm, our team is comprised of professionals that have been in the trenches with over 60 years of operational experience. We have in-house access to the best industry talent and the processes required to deploy them quickly and effectively. Quality, speed, expertise, reputation, and value are how we help firms gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace.


4. What are your goals going forward?Search jobs


Many financial firms are struggling to keep up with financial crime trends, evolving regulatory guidance and massive backlogs and workloads. It all adds up to increased risk, falling behind on the innovation agenda and staff burnout. My goal is to add value to the anti-money laundering community by providing thought leadership, empathy and partnership in tackling our toughest industry challenges.


5. What do you enjoy doing on your personal time?


I love creating memories and new experiences with my wife, our two kids and our Shorkie pup. I also enjoy endurance athletics and have completed 5 marathons and a full Ironman in recent years.
