His mother was an educator at Alcorn University and his father was a concrete finisher & plumber. They raised Allan to be a man of accountability and responsibility.
Mr. Cole served honorably as a US Paratrooper, which later led to a successful executive marketing career in Entertainment and Hospitality. Mr. Cole’s service and time working with Sony, BMG, Hilton and Hyatt embedded his heart for service, professionalism, and hospitality. He relocated back home equipped with lessons and real business experience.
