Hollie Montgomery, Jr., MBA

A dedicated professional with over 39 years of public service while serving in the Military and working for the Federal Government. I have worked for the United States Government in various leadership positions over the past 36 plus years. 

In 2005 I retired from the United States Army after successfully completing 22 years of active duty service. During my military service, I was able to visit several countries around the world. In my travels I was blessed to be able to interact with people from all walks of life. I spoke with people who have similar beliefs as I and had dealings with those whose beliefs were very foreign to me. These encounters gave me a greater appreciation for the human experience and made me realize that we as humans go through many of the same things. We have many of the same hopes and dreams, we suffer many of the same disappointments and sense of failure. I believe these experiences provide me with a unique perspective on life and the many situations that we face during our life journey.
