Jamal Whitlow, affectionately known as JWhitlow, Creative Director of Privileged Lifestyle Brand, has recently been appointed to the YMCA Davis Whitehaven Branch Board of Directors. JWhitlow brings a myriad of experiences in leadership, networking, strategic planning, sales, workforce development, relationship-building and event planning skills to the board.
“Jamal is a connector who bridges his professional role in workforce development with his social role as an event coordinator,” said Robert S. Harvey, YMCA Davis Branch Board Chair. “His ability to gather young professionals is second to none and will position Davis to reach a broader membership.”
Previously, he sat on the Memphis Urban League Young Professionals board as the Social and Cultural Chair, where he was instrumental in creating engaging monthly networking events and the Mixology event, which merged live painting, live cooking with local chefs, the best bartenders in the city, a live band and dj in this premiere event of the year. Currently, he sits on the Beale Street Authority Board and the Hattiloo Young Professionals Experience Board.
“The Whitehaven area got next and I want to be front and center of its comeback,” JWhitlow said. “I’m excited to dive into the great work already being done by the YMCA Davis branch.”
