Meet The Team
We're a small, yet tight-knit team here at The Alternative, and we like it that way. We have combined more than 40 years of experience in helping businesses operate smoothly, and know The Triangle like the back of our hand. Raleigh will always be home.
Andy Jones Founder/CEO
As someone who always felt more comfortable paving his own road, Andy set out to hold processing and the accountability of mail to a higher standard when he grew to be unsatisfied with what had become the industry standard. Since its inception in 1984, and through a lot of blood, sweat, tears, and cups of coffee, he has continued to promote the avid customer advocacy that is The Alternative. Nowadays, even though mostly from his home office, he has yet to lose that entrepreneurial spirit that is the foundation and soul of the business. During “non-business” times, Andy likes to keep up with current events, listen to his vinyl collection, take walks, play board games, and throw darts.

Nancy Jones Co-Founder/CCO
A Campbell sociology grad, Nancy has been part of The Alternative’s vision since it’s arrival on the Triangle scene in ’84. Since then, she’s served as an example leader, pushing the idea of a better way of handling paper communication through a lot of love, research, conversations, and drive. Now, partially enjoying the retired life, Nancy’s always willing to jump in where needed and still enjoys having those same conversations that started it all. When out of the office, she fancies sketching, traveling, improv acting, and some good wine with good friends.
