Baboulas, Alex (31)

Baboulas, Alex (31)

I was born and raised in Scarborough, Ont., where I grew up with a passion for baseball. I was fortunate to be drafted by the Seattle Mariners out of high
school where I obtained a scholarship to play NCAA Division I baseball at Northwestern State University in Louisiana, and I graduated in 2007 with a bachelor of science degree in psychology. I have been with CIBC for 10 years, and I have been extremely fortunate to grow and develop in a variety of roles that have stretched my abilities, capabilities and thought process. Being a leader and having an impact on employees and our community is the most rewarding part of my role as a general manager.
