Alex Rodriguez is a businessman and the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of A-Rod Corp,
a broad-based investment firm that bets on world-class startups and partners with leading global
companies across the real estate, health and wellness, technology, and sports & entertainment
industries. While best known as one of the world’s greatest athletes (a 14x MLB All-Star and a
2009 World Series Champion with the New York Yankees), for more than 25 years, Alex leads a
team of experts building high-growth businesses and enhancing the value of more than 30
companies in the A-Rod Corp portfolio.

Alex founded A-Rod Corp in 1995, purchasing a duplex apartment on the theory that investing
his MLB earnings wisely would protect him from the kinds of financial struggles that afflict too
many professional athletes. While he racked up extraordinary stats on the field (696 home runs
and more grand slams than any other MLB player in history), Alex simultaneously assembled an
impressive team at A-Rod Corp, bought apartment units across the southeastern U.S., and built a
fully integrated real estate and development company. In 2020, Alex joined CGI Merchant
Group's hotel investment fund to acquire and develop properties across North America and the
Caribbean.

Following his success in real estate, Alex has invested in a variety of sectors where he has
expertise. He looks for long-term opportunities to provide financial capital, work alongside
founders and leadership, and amplify the growth of each company.

In addition to leading A-Rod Corp, Alex is CEO of Slam Corp, a special purpose acquisition
company (SPAC) with Antara Capital Chairman Himanshu Gulati as equal partner. Slam Corp is
seeking to acquire a leader in the consumer tech, media, entertainment, and health and wellness
sectors.

In 2021, Alex joined the NBA’s Minnesota Timberwolves and Minnesota Lynx ownership
group. In the same year, Alex formed A-Rod Media, a strategic pillar within the organization to
house all media activity. A-Rod Media offers scalable, multimedia capabilities, including
original content creation, compelling narrative storytelling, and audience engagement across all
marketing platforms.

Alex is an Emmy Award-winning MLB analyst for Fox Sports and ESPN. He has been a judge
and investor on ABC’s Shark Tank, mentored financially distressed ex-athletes on CNBC’s Back
in the Game, and co-hosted the podcast The Corp with Barstool Sports’ Dan Katz, interviewing
CEOs, entrepreneurs, and sports legends. Committed to creating opportunities for young people
to succeed, Alex serves on the Board of Directors of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade
where he is an Alumni Hall of Fame Honoree, and the Boards of Trustees of the University of
Miami. His gifts to the University of Miami and Florida International University have provided
scholarships to dozens of students. Alex resides in Miami with his daughters, Natasha and Ella.
