The former Fleetwood Town boss joined the club last month, replacing Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley.
Since then a host of new signings have been made and with the pre-season fixtures all but sorted, they are ready for the start.
"From the first conversations I had, they made it pretty clear about the path the club is on and they want it to continue," Alexander told the club's website.
"It is a really exciting process for myself and Chris Lucketti.
"For the last 30 years I've been in the Football League and above, I think there is a unique story with the club, you look at the detail.
"I think there is a real drive and ambition here, there is a work ethic and a discipline already here."
Alexander knows what will be expected of him.
"There’s a responsibility on our shoulders now to continue that work and hopefully the qualities that we bring will marry well with what’s already here and we’ll get success.”
