Lamar joined Columbia University in June 2021 as Assistant Manager, Guest Services. In this role, he oversees the Hospitality Desk and acts as a liaison between students and our campus partners.

Lamar holds an MBA from Monroe College-New Rochelle and is is a certified CH-47 helicopter mechanic for the New York Army National Guard.
