DETROIT (WWJ) – He’s a trailblazer in the banking industry in metro Detroit and at a time when many people embrace retirement, he continues to build community.
WWJ Newsradio 950’s Stephanie Davis spoke with the man many call a “hero” because of the way he would later help others.
At 79, Aubrey Lee, Sr. is still going strong. He sits on the boards at Beaumont Hospital going on 25 years and at Walsh college where he advocates for minorities.
“And I push, I try to get more minorities involved in Walsh College …,” said Lee.
Lee himself has been a trailblazer at NBD Bank where, in 1966, he became the bank’s first African American to reach managerial status.
