Who Is Leverette Weekes?
In 1973 our founder, attorney Cornell Leverette Moore, was frustrated with discrimination in the workplace and the lack of traditional opportunities to advance his career using his legal degree from Howard University. Mr. Moore and his beloved wife, Wenda Weekes Moore settled in Minneapolis- St. Paul, Minnesota, and bet on the strength of his network of diverse professional athletes, executives, and entrepreneurs to fuel projects delivered with excellence and powered by diverse talent.
