Alex Von Furstenberg is first of all a prince. He is the son of Prince Egon and the famous fashion designer Diane. Although he is part of a royal family and had a bright future before even being born, he decided he wanted to be known for his own work, therefore he concentrated on personal projects. He has managed to prove his abilities as a modern entrepreneur over the years, with a few successful ideas. Whether you count the family foundation he is part of or the wide variety of projects, he has only achieved positive things.
Alex Von Furstenberg began his career as a trader. The first company he worked for was Allen & Company. It is not a very popular name in the industry, although it has an amazing success. It is the type of company that prefers to work. It doesn't count too much on advertising or marketing. It doesn't even have an official website, not to mention about no press releases. It was a good start for the young entrepreneur. His ascension in the financial world didn't stop here. He later joined W. P. Stewart & Co., an asset management company established in Bermuda. At the same time, IAC decided to “employ” his services for management. IAC is an Internet huge conglomerate established in United States of America. It is responsible for the management of some of the most important websites in the world. Although Alex Von Furstenberg had nothing to do with the Internet or any computer studies, his leading abilities convinced the IAC directors to orientate towards him.
Over the years, the successful entrepreneur has proved his dedication to his family multiple times. For instance, he offered himself to lead the sophisticated restructuring process of Diane Von Furstenberg Studio, a luxurious fashion studio established decades ago. It had a tough start. In fact, it is responsible for launching some of the most popular dressing styles over the years. It came as the perfect solution for the free woman. With the fashion boom in the last decade, the studio annual revenue went down to $1 million. Alex Von Furstenberg increased its income with 2,000% in only two years. By the way his process was over, the annual income went to $200 million. It was a major move that practically proved his abilities as a leader. Over the past few years, he spent most of his time with the family foundation.
