Incubator Director
Adam Lee


Make no mistake, if Adam is aware of a vulnerable group who may not have a voice of their own – he will be screaming from the rooftops on their behalf. Adam has a passion for enabling individuals and communities to achieve their goals. As Incubator Director, Adam leads Filene’s efforts to make a difference in the lives of financially vulnerable consumers by seeking programs to solve the challenge, testing those solutions in the real world, and sharing results with the marketplace. Currently, Adam is working with credit unions to test innovative programs to close the financial service access gap in the Reaching Minority Households Incubator.

Adam started his professional career serving communities through Americorps*National Civilian Community Corps and City Year. As a consultant with Deloitte, Adam honed his ability to build capacity within communities, non-profits, and government agencies. He also supported credit unions as a former project manager with CUNA Mutual Group. Adam earned his Master of Public Affairs, with a focus on Community Development and Leadership at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

When Adam is not raising a ruckus to serve those in need, he is a dedicated father and husband exploring the great outdoors with the family’s loyal K-9 in tow.
