TRENTON, N.J. – Alex Sauickie was sworn in to the General Assembly by Republican Leader John DiMaio, who delivered the oath of office from the chamber floor on Thursday. Sauickie won a special convention in August to succeed the late Assemblyman Ron Dancer.
“It’s an honor to serve as an outspoken advocate for conservative values in the state legislature and I will work tirelessly to stop radical left policies that are ruining the economy, coming between parents and children, and threatening our republic and individual liberties,” Sauickie said.
A lifelong resident of Jackson Township, Sauickie resigned from his town council position to serve as an assemblyman.
“I represent the struggling families who can’t afford ‘tax and spend’ Democrats and the beleaguered business owners who were forced to close their doors because of government overreach,” he added. “I look forward to getting to work for the residents of the 12th legislative district and all New Jerseyans.”
Sauickie built a respected career in the financial technology services market starting with Merrill Lynch in 1994, helping to develop the electronic trading platform Merrill Edge. He went on to become chief executive and operating officer of multiple financial software companies. Currently, he serves as global head of wealth management services for Fidelity Information Services Inc., a multinational payment services provider based in Jacksonville, Fla.
Following the unexpected loss of his daughter, Chloe, from a rare heart condition in 2005, he founded a nonprofit to benefit children. He also volunteered as a board member of the Kimball Medical Center Foundation (now Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus), where he served as chairman from 2012 to 2014.
He earned a Bachelor of Science in business administration and marketing from Trenton State College (now The College of New Jersey).
An avid marathoner and Ironman triathlete, he is a father of five and resides in Jackson Township with his wife, Maggie.
