HISTORY & ETHOS
In 2001, John Alexander launched Alexander Decorator’s. As one of Tayside’s leading decorating firms, Alexander Decorator’s has given John a unique understanding of not only growing a successful business, but also the skills you need to work within a business, as part of a team. With a large and growing workforce, over the years, John has up-skilled hundreds of individuals, and it was this experience that gave John the opportunity to become a lecturer at Dundee and Angus College.
In 2019, John founded Alexander Community Development (ACD). ACD is built on a passion to give back to the city of Dundee. Our Transition to Trade programmes aim to give young people the opportunities to learn trades in a safe live environment, while working with their schools. Our two Community Programmes, Food Distribution and Trades for All, both serve to help Dundee people and businesses. Our Food Distribution works with food banks and charities to help distribute food and key items to Dundee’s most vulnerable. Our Trades for All offers the services of ACD and Alexander Decorators for discounted rates to the third sector.
