InfoThe son of Greek immigrants and a Chicago schoolboy basketball legend and community activist, Alexi Giannoulias has spent his professional career helping families and businesses in Illinois. Now, the Democrat is running in the March 21, 2006 primary for Illinois State Treasurer.

An all-star basketball player at Chicago's Latin High School, Alexi helped Boston University reach the NCAA Basketball Tournament regional playoffs. He later played professional basketball in Greece.

Giannoulias graduated cum laude from Boston University and earned his law degree at Tulane University, where he focused on environmental protection issues.

Alexi returned to Chicago to play an integral role in managing the family's community bank, Broadway Bank, one of the most successful privately owned financial institutions in Illinois. In that position he has helped create thousands of jobs in the Chicago area by providing loans to small businesses, including dozens of African American, Asian, Hispanic and women-owned firms. Similar to the responsibilities of the Illinois State Treasurer, Alexi has used bank investments to spur economic development and help the community.

As the head of his own AG Foundation, Elexi has donated tens of thousands of dollars to Chicago-area charities and environmental organizations, including significant help for victims of Hurricane Katrina.
