About Alex Carr

From my desire to help others make the most of what they've been given, I began working for Thrivent in 2020. I have also been serving in the United States Army Reserves since 2018.

I have treasured my experience working out of the Cedar Rapids, IA office as the leader of the Mississippi Valley Associates team. I am surrounded by professional and caring colleagues that share my dedication to providing personalized and quality service to protect and grow our clients' assets.

With my wife, Julia, and my Yellow Labrador Retriever, Crystal, we live in Coralville, IA.

Every day I feel blessed providing personalized financial guidance to people at all stages of life. At Thrivent, we view money not as a goal, but as a tool — one that can afford you a life rich in meaning and gratitude. We believe humanity thrives when individuals make the most of all they've been given. I'm here to help you do just that.


I specialize in the following areas:

  • Investments
  • Solutions for businesses
  • Retirement income planning
  • Income tax planning
  • Estate planning
