Last week, AIM Group welcomed two new staff members to our number. We are excited to announce the hiring of Anderson Hicklen as our Birmingham and Huntsville Executive Director and Lowery Thomas as our Nashville Executive Director.

Anderson graduated from Samford University with Business Management and Marketing majors, and has been in a business development role calling since graduation. He came from an IT recruiting company where he recruited software developers for Huntsville and Birmingham, and most recently worked at a banking software start up in Birmingham selling compliance software to community banks. Born and raised in Huntsville, Anderson currently lives in Birmingham with his wife Allison.

Lowery will serve as the Executive Director for AIM Group’s newest chapter in Nashville, Selous Venture Society.  He is a graduate of The University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business where he was also a member of the UGA Men’s Golf Team.  Prior to AIM Group, Lowery received extensive experience in financial services where he worked with entrepreneurs and early stage companies from his past tenures with A. Logan Brokerage in New York City, and Rhodes Risk Advisors in Atlanta.  Lowery works hand in hand with our members to provide them with opportunities to build the best portfolio of early state companies.

Our new staff looks forward to meeting their members and starting work to grow the chapters in number and influence. Be looking for our email announcement for the next road show and make sure to come out to meet these new Executive Directors in your city!
