“Prior to joining Universal Pasteurization and Universal Cold Storage, I had spent the majority of my career providing financial consulting to manufacturing companies,” said Chris Voudouris. He continued, “I really enjoyed working with new businesses and their management teams on four to five week engagements, but found myself more interested in delving deeper into the day-to-day operations of manufacturing.”
Three years ago Chris made the move and joined the Universal Pasteurization and Universal Cold Storage team as the Chief Financial Officer.
“My current position has afforded me many exciting opportunities, including the ability to open a new 90,000 square foot operation in Villa Rica, Georgia. With the establishment of this facility came the chance to work with my fellow executives to hire a team, remodel a facility, network with local businesses, and establish a footprint in our new community,” said Chris.
As the company was in the building phase, externally Chris and the Universal team worked with numerous partners to connect with local business leaders, educators, and influencers. Internally, Chris led the effort to incorporate the Lincoln, Nebraska facility’s culture and accounting & financial department practices into Villa Rica, to allow for seamless flow between the two locations.
Chris said, “I feel blessed to have started our operation in Georgia, and am looking forward to continuing to grow as a leader in our business as well as our neighborhood.”
