Cory is an ambassador for education and has proven it in his works mentoring within his home town. He is a 2010 Graduate from The University of Alabama’s Manderson School of Business with a B.S. in Business Administration majoring in both Management Information Systems and General Business Administration. After college he set sail into the world of information technology and business process as a management consultant after college. While in industry he sharpened his expertise in change management, process improvement, and strategic management.
He envisioned Ubind while in college mentoring middle school and high school students in historic Selma, Alabama. There he saw a group of talented students that did not have the means or exposure to attract the top universities across the nation. It was at that point in April of 2009 where he thought of the idea of an online community to connect students with universities using direct interactions with the school’s recruiters.
Two years later, in August of 2011, Cory set out to make his dream a reality by starting P.R.I.D.E Group and Affiliates LLC with the company’s main focus being Ubind. Cory has a firm belief in the quote “If you never start, you are destined to fail.” Throughout his works within his community and corporate America, Cory understands that having sound educational footing and exposure are two cornerstones to success. He believes his work as the Chief Executive Officer of Ubind is moving his dream of expanding students reach to colleges and universities worldwide closer each day.
