Having joined Capital Assets in 1988, Mr. Coleman’s responsibilities and expertise have evolved over the course of more than 35 years.

After interning at the First American Bank in Nashville, Mr. Coleman went on to serve as a structure financial analyst at the United Municipal Investment Corporation, where he devised a collateralized mortgage obligation analytics method for the company. Well-qualified in his field, he initially studied economics and finance at Vanderbilt University, where he attained a Bachelor of Arts in 1983. Following this accomplishment, Mr. Coleman graduated from Vanderbilt’s Owen Graduate School of Management with an MBA in 1985. 

In a career suffused with highlights, Mr. Coleman is most proud of his longevity at Capital Assets, where he was integral to various changes in its business model.

In accounting for his success, he largely credits his dedication, persistence, and willingness to expand upon previous achievements. 

Outside of his primary efforts, Mr. Coleman is a member of the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution and Memphis Mensa.
