We specifically asked Chamberlain to give us a picture where he did not look debonair and handsome but he was unable to find one.
As Vice President of the LAX Coastal Chamber of Commerce, and now on our team as a consultant, Chamberlain Duru has been an invaluable ally and resource for our company for the past five years. As one of our first early supporters of the then-new West LA Pronto Tax Office, Chamberlain assisted us to interface with the community and become respected for our tax knowledge on the Westside of Los Angeles. He has provided guidance and support throughout the time we've known him.
Over the summer of 2015, Chamberlain started his own consulting firm, Redmon Advisors, to speclialize in helping small business owners successfully relate to and engage with the local community. You know we had to sign on as one of Mr. Duru's first clients. And we are so happy that we did because as usual he is results-oriented and his peaceful and professional demeanor calms any stormy sea.
A former Wells Fargo Senior Business Banking Specialist as well as Commercial Banking officer, Mr. Duru is originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, and is still mourning the loss of his precious Panthers in Superbowl 50. Mr. Duru attended Hampton University where received his Bachelors of Science degree in marketing in 2002, one year before relocating to Los Angeles in 2003.
Always passionate about financial literacy, youth health and wellness, and entrepreneurship, Mr. Duru currently sits on the Advisory Board for the Salvation Army, has a Board position with the California Institute of Health and Social Services, as well as St. Bernards High School, while also representing the Chamber voice through his participation on the Westchester Vitalization Board.
So, yeah, he keeps busy and we feel privileged to be part of his growing client list at Redmon Advisors.
