Meet our February A-Lister: Alfonzo Alexander, Chief Ethics and Diversity Officer, NASBA


“For optimal success in your career, your work has to correlate with your purpose.”—Alfonzo Alexander, Chief Ethics & Diversity Officer, NASBA





In addition to his role as Chief Ethics and Diversity Officer at the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy, Alfonzo Alexander serves as president of the organization’s Center for the Public Trust. His dual role comes with a wide range of responsibilities, many of which involve travel. Alfonzo uses Southwest as his primary airline for both business and personal travel, citing the Company’s extensive routing options through Nashville and our reputation for ontime flights. He also loves Southwest’s priority boarding and open-seating policies, which help him select his favorite seat on every flight. While Alfonzo enjoys his time in the sky, he always looks forward to returning home to his wife and three daughters. We love having you onboard, Alfonzo!

Comfort Zone “On the rare occasion I fly another airline, I never get that comfortable, homey feeling I experience on Southwest.”


Home Sweet Home “When you travel as much as I do, the goal is to spend as many nights at home as you can. Thanks to Southwest’s efficiency, I can often fly somewhere and get back home the same day.”


Family Flights “I use the majority of my Rapid Rewards points for family vacations and for extended family members to go on trips for school or work. My mother will also use my points to fly her sisters in to visit her.”
