iskander.com is the brainchild of Sheriff Iskander, who has raced horses successfully in Sydney since 1996.

One of the first racehorses and stallions that Sheriff was involved with was the mighty LION HUNTER who remains one of the top producing stallions in Australia today, despite his untimely death in 2004.

A successful businessman and entrepreneur, Sheriff is a graduate of the University of Technology Sydney, where he gained a business degree majoring in accounting with sub-majors of business law and marketing.

Sheriff founded the accounting firm ’Alexanders’ in 1990, and has seen that business grow from a small private practice employing only himself, to a medium sized firm with a number of divisions including financial planning, commercial property, marketing & media, and IT. Please visit the Alexanders website for more information about their accounting and business services.
