2020 40 Under 40 Honoree: Albert Ciuksza
“The fun part for me is to build the processes and work directly with the leaders."
In the next decade, Baby Boomers are expected to retire in droves, leaving Generation Xers to assume the country’s top executive roles. But because Boomers have stuck around for so long, Gen-Xers lack the leadership experience that previous generations had at their age.
That’s where Albert Ciuksza comes in. As the vice president of growth and development for Solutions 21, it’s his job to train the leaders of the future, ultimately building better bosses.
“The fun part for me is to build the processes and work directly with the leaders, putting them in position to be successful,” he says.
According to Ciuksza, part of being a successful leader is working within a community and not just within a company. He models the importance of community service in his own life, sitting on Bellevue’s Community Development Corporation and working with Neighbors Feeding Neighbors.
“When you’re talking about being involved day in and day out, you better do it yourself,” Ciuksza says.
