I look forward to bringing my expertise as a former banker and advocate for small businesses to encourage and promote opportunities for entrepreneurship and sustained growth.”

He also serves on a number of boards and organizations, including the Delta Nu Lambda Chapter of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., the Hughes Memorial Foundation, the Danville YMCA, and Big Brother Big Sisters.
