PowerToFly's Financial Inclusion summit kicks off with a very special conversation between James C. Rhee, Founder and CEO of FirePine Group and Dionna Smith, Global Head of DEI at Thumbtack on how we can marry capital with purpose and truth. James Rhee is an impact investor, founder, CEO and educator who empowers people, brands and organizations to fulfill their true potential by marrying capital with purpose and truth across multiple systems. The acclaimed story of the remarkable transformation and re-imagination of Ashley Stewart, one of the country’s largest brands serving Black women, under his leadership as chairman, CEO and investor (2013-2020) has served as proof to millions of people, as well as the world’s leading businesses and organizations, that one can do better by being better. As a senior leader of two Boston-based private equity firms, James helped manage billions of dollars of growth and distressed capital before ultimately founding FirePine Group, a platform that has stewarded the capital of some of the world’s most sophisticated investors. On March 31, 2021, Howard University announced that James would serve a three-year term as the Johnson Chair of Entrepreneurship and Professor of Entrepreneurship, as well as Senior Adviser to the newly endowed Center for Women, Gender and Global Leadership.
