Alex Mashinsky is a Ukrainian-born Israeli-American entrepreneur and business executive. He is a co-founder and former CEO of Celsius Network, a bankrupt cryptocurrency lending platform.

In the early 1990s, Mashinsky founded VoiceSmart, one of the first firms to offer telecommunications switches to handle ordinary voice as well as Voice over IP call routing. Mashinsky founded GroundLink in 2004 as a service to book an on-demand limousine and car services from a computer or smartphone. He was also the founder of Q-Wireless, which later became part of Transit Wireless. From 2014 to 2015, Mashinsky served as CEO of Novatel.

Mashinsky is the defendant in a civil lawsuit brought in January 2023 by the Attorney General of New York, who accuses him of committing securities fraud during his time as Celsius CEO. On July 13, 2023, the Securities and Exchange Commission filed a criminal complaint against Mashinsky and Celsius. Mashinsky was arrested on the same day.
