LOWERY

Name: Mickell Lowery

Job Title and Company: District Sales Manager, FedEx Services

Length of time living in Memphis: 18 years

Life history: I was born in Memphis, however I grew up in Atlanta. I would often visit and spend the summers with my father. I moved back to Memphis in 1995, after receiving an athletic scholarship from LeMoyne-Owen College to play basketball. After graduating I decided to remain here due to my love for city and the many opportunities to get involved with organizations which help shape the city’s future; such as the New Memphis Institute and Leadership Memphis. I began working at FedEx and shortly after received my Master’s Degree from the University of Arkansas. I am proud to currently serve on the Board of Trustees for LeMoyne-Owen College and Fire Museum of Memphis.

What is your favorite local festival? I look forward to Memphis in May every year. I invite all of my out-of-town friends so they can experience great music and the best BBQ on the planet. We learn so much about the countries that Memphis in May honors.

What is your favorite local restaurant? I like Spindini’s, Tugs, and Majestic Grill. However my favorite is the Four Way Restaurant. Great southern cooking, warm and friendly atmosphere, as well as an historical landmark.

What company are you most impressed with? FedEx! With over 30,000 local employees, FedEx is the economic engine of our area’s economy. FedEx is also a leader in community investments for our future grow and development.

What can you find in Memphis that you can’t find anywhere else? Music and cultural heritage; Sun Studios, Rock and Soul Museum, Graceland, Stax, Gibson Guitar, Beale Street, National Civil Rights Museum, Slave Haven, and much much more.

In your opinion, what can be done to move Memphis forward? Combining Memphis and Shelby County to compete as one community for a successful future. We also need to provide better educational and employment opportunities for our future generations.
