Hi, I'm Marvin White
WHERE I COME FROM
I am a native Memphian. I earned my Master’s in Business with a concentration in Finance, Insurance & Real Estate in 2003 from the University of Memphis. I earned my Bachelor’s in Business Administration with a Marketing Concentration from The U of M as well. Also, I am a proud graduate of Whitehaven High School where I was elected Senior Class President in 1994.
My business experience spans two decades and has covered a myriad of disciplines from Fortune 50 Corporations, to Real Estate professional, and entrepreneur. I am also a certified Project Manager, with expertise in managing assets and people to get the job done on time and on budget. I have formally led large teams of 100 or more people but also know how to handle back office negotiations with tact and integrity. I love technology and data and believe decisions should be supported with facts.
I also intend to lean on my passion for community service and philanthropy. I am a Big Brothers Big Sisters mentor. I am a Leadership Memphis Board of Director and United Way leadership giver for the past 15 years. These skills would allow me to serve the City of Memphis well.
Now Go. Do. Be.
My mission is to drive positive education, social and economic change. I will be present, accountable and respectful of my colleagues and supporters. I will commit to supporting education initiatives. I will commit to honor all those that serve the people (including police, fire and first responders) and attract and retain the best and brightest talent. I will support dramatic improvements to improve the look and feel of our environment. I vow to drive diversity and increase disbursement of funds for contracts and close the disparity gaps. I pledge to protect our citizens and build stronger community organizations.
