Sound History. Bright Future.

AlexanderHancock Associates was founded in 1989 by Emmie Alexander and Jerry Hancock in Davidson, N.C., just outside Charlotte.

After many years as a consultant and officer in other firms, Emmie struck out as an independent in 1989. In just a few months Jerry became a partner, bringing his vast experience in communications, creative design, technology, and marketing.

Over the past 33 years, the two partners have strategically chosen to keep the organization small in order to ensure clients the personal attention and expertise of the partners, and to secure the experienced, proven capabilities of a select group of professional contract consultants with whom we have worked for many years. Over the years, at least 12 of them have been former clients.

Today we focus on teaching people how to move the needle by means of strategic conversations. Conversations are how most business gets done, and our courses are designed to empower participants to have the kinds of strategic business conversations that lead to both immediate and long-lasting results and benefit the bottom line. We believe in the power of changing the world one conversation at a time.

  • We work with a few clients at a time in order to create a close working relationship with our clients, and to ensure quick response and collaborative decisions.
  • Our strength is helping clients achieve business results by developing skills that are practical and immediately applied in the workplace. These skills are transferable across a wide range of business situations.
  • We constantly conduct research to stay current and to continually strengthen our offerings, both in the area of current expert thinking and through action research on best practices in leading organizations.
  • We’re flexible on ways to help you achieve your objectives, and firm on the values of quality results, relationships, and trust.
