As part of our #WealthInColor video series, we’re proud to be able to highlight the first of our New Orleans entrepreneurs.

Michael Meredith of VPG Enterprises is an engineer, former baseball player, previous employee of a Fortune 5 oil company, and now the co-founder and CEO of this New Orleans-based real estate development, construction and property management company.

What’s unique about Michael’s story is his focus on determining his own destiny, breaking ground – literally – in New Orleans as a Black entrepreneur and improving his own life while benefitting communities of color.

Michael spoke with us at a new, local luxury VPG development last spring.
