Alex

Depledge MBE

After studying for her master’s degree at the University of Chicago, and working on a political campaign there, Alex Depledge returned to the UK to work as a consultant at Accenture. She specialised in customer and channel execution before joining her friend Jules Coleman to start the online business, Hassle.com. 

What started life as a rather modest booking page allowing users to book all manner of services, became a well-known brand, and eventually, they sold the company for £24million.  Jules and Alex have since gone on to establish a new business,  Resi.co.uk aimed at disrupting the architecture sector with Jules as CTO and Alex as CEO.
