Summit Credit Union Business Development Specialist Honored as “40 Under 40” Leader
MADISON, Wis.—Christian Albouras, business development specialist at Summit Credit Union, has been named a “40 Under 40” business professional by In Business Magazine, a Wisconsin-based publication.
Albouras, 30, who earned his master’s degree in business in 2014 and his Credit Union Business Development Professional certification in 2015, was honored for both his Summit Credit Union career accomplishments and his extensive volunteer leadership. Albouras is a member of the CUNA Marketing and Business Development Council and plays a key role in building Summit’s CUatWork workplace financial education program. The magazine’s March issue described Albouras as pleased to make his mother, a single mom, proud when he received his graduate degree at commencement. Only two percent of Latino males earn graduate degrees, the magazine said.
Albouras has been a role model and leader in the Latino and greater Madison community. He serves on mayor and county executive appointed committees, including as co-chair of a Madison Police Department committee that works to enhance community and police relationships.
“Summit Credit Union is proud of Christian’s many accomplishments,” said Chris Schell, Summit’s senior vice president. “He is recognized as a strong leader at the Latino Consortium for Action, the League of United Latin American Citizens, the Dane County Cultural Affairs Commission and more.”
In addition to being featured in In Business Magazine as a “40 Under 40” leader, Albouras will be honored at a community celebration.
