Alex Frommeyer to receive 2023 Emerging Leader Award from Louisville Alumni

July 26, 2023

Frommeyer joins exceptional group of Alumni Awards honorees who will be celebrated this fall

University of Louisville recently announced Alex Frommeyer, Beam's co-founder and CEO, as the recipient of this year’s 2023 Emerging Leader Award. The Alumni Emerging Leader Award honors an alumni who has made a positive impact in their community, industry or profession.

Alex Frommeyer received his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering in 2010 and his Master of Engineering in Civil Engineering in 2011 from the University of Louisville.

As a student, Frommeyer participated in the Student Government Association, served as a Cardinal Ambassador, and was President of Chi Epsilon, the civil engineering honor society. Currently, he is co-founder and CEO of Beam Benefits, a company that initially set out to modernize dental insurance but has now expanded to offer a full portfolio of ancillary employee benefits. Beam Benefits has raised over $160M in venture capital and has over 300 employees. Frommeyer co-founded Beam with fellow Speed School graduates Dan Dykes and Alex Curry in 2012.

“Alex Frommeyer is an emerging leader and an exceptional Cardinal. We are excited to celebrate and honor his achievements at this year’s Alumni Awards during Homecoming week,” said Josh Hawkins, Assistant Vice President of Alumni Relations and Annual Giving.

Under Frommeyer’s leadership, Beam Benefits has become one of the most innovative companies in the healthcare and benefits industry. Frommeyer also has served on the boards of several nonprofit organizations, including the Greater Columbus Arts Council. Frommeyer and Beam Benefits also support Free to Smile, BalletMet, and Pelotonia.

Frommeyer and Beam Benefits have been recognized in the Forbes 30 Under 30, Central Ohio’s Smart 50, the Kentucky Entrepreneur Hall of Fame, Columbus CEO Top 3 Workplaces, and the Inc. 5000 fastest growing companies and Best Workplaces of 2023, among many others.

The Louisville Alumni Awards personify the qualities, mission, and values of the university. The award is presented to graduates who have demonstrated exceptional leadership in professional and philanthropic endeavors and who have shown loyalty and support to the entire university.

Frommeyer joins exceptional group of 20 Alumni Awards honorees who represent each of UofL’s colleges, schools, libraries, and student affairs division, as well as the Alumnus of the Year and signature award winners, who will be recognized for extraordinary achievements in their profession and enduring service in their community.
