Alex Rankin Director of Services Expand Alex did an MA in the History of Cinema and Popular Culture at Exeter University, specialising in pre-1918 films. He has singularly failed to use any of the knowledge gleaned from this course in his career to date. A very short stint in the world of corporate IT convinced him that he'd rather be elsewhere and Alex has worked for not-for-profit organisations ever since. Alex joined Aspire in 2005 to launch their Campaigning work, a significant new venture for the Charity. In a relatively short space of time Aspire established excellent working relationships with key Parliamentarians and now regularly provides expert opinion on a wide range of issues. In 2009 Alex moved across to manage the Services Team; the department has grown significantly since then, expanding core programmes and adding new services for spinally injured people. This trend looks set to continue, particularly with the current rapid growth in the number of Aspire Houses available.Email Alex.
