Therrell High School from 1975 through 1980. His job experience started in aviation. He is the nephew of the late Michael R. Hollis, who was the founder and CEO of the first “Black” owned commercial airline, Air Atlanta back in the mid to late 80’s. Shortly after, he was awarded a four year football scholarship at Oregon State University where he studied Business and Financial Management. Flem decided to dedicate himself to the financial banking industry where he has been for over 39 years with both traditional and non-traditional finance institutions.

He has spent over 30 years in the business development and financial services industry with companies such as: Oppenheimer, First Investors, Foreign Currency International, Professional Across America, Guaranty Bank and Fifth Third Bank. His hard work in the business community was recognized by our 44th president Barack Obama. He was awarded the “LifeTime Achievement Award” for 2016. His business career started out in Miami Florida in 1987 with Oppenheimer Financial Services and First Investors Corporation as a licensed broker and broker assistant. Many years later, he joined Foreign Currency International, Inc. as a commodity trader. His specialty was the Japanese yen. In the midst of growing personally, he decided to embrace the world of entrepreneurship. He started a consulting business called Professionals Across America Inc. His goal and objectives were to assist at developing small businesses through financial growth, sales and marketing strategies. After many years in corporate finance, he started another company in the sports and entertainment industry as an agent for the NBA and NFL called Life After Sports & Entertainment, LLC. After selling the company, he took on a different challenge in the financial industry. He discovered the world of “traditional” banking. In 2005, he was recruited to open a new banking market in Atlanta with Guaranty Bank as a financial Center Manager. After a successful career with Guaranty bank, he took on a new challenge with Fifth Third Bank as a V.P. Commercial lending as well as a small business and business development lending officer.
