Banking innovator named 2013 Outstanding Young Alumni
Banking innovator Joshua Greenough, a 2002 graduate of the University of Oregon’s Lundquist College of Business and the College of Arts and Sciences, is being honored by the University of Oregon Alumni Association as the UOAA’s 2013 Outstanding Young Alumni Award recipient.
Greenough, a resident of San Francisco, will be presented with the award during the UO men’s basketball game against USC on Feb. 1 at Matthew Knight Arena.
Greenough, ranked No. 1 on Bank Innovation’s “2013 Innovators to Watch” list, founded the mobile application Bankons and recently sold select parts of its software to Capital One, before accepting a position as Senior Director of Innovation at Capital One Labs. Greenough won a Finovate Best in Show award for Bankons, which allowed customers to find businesses offering special deals in their area. Capital One Labs incubates and tests new Capital One products and ideas before they are released to the public.
While at the UO, Greenough was a member of the ultimate team that advanced to the final four of the 2001 College Championships. Greenough continued to play after graduation, and in 2010 won the World Ultimate Club Championships with his Bay Area-based team, Revolver.
As a recipient of the UOAA Outstanding Young Alumni Award, Greenough joins a select list of Ducks that includes television personality Ann Curry (1996), marathoner and Olympic track coach Alberto Salazar (1998), and Paralympian and motivational speaker Tiana Tozer (2010).
