Oscar W. King III

Born in Kansas City, he later joined the military and came to Detroit to work in real estate for the legendary Al Taubman. His journey includes degrees from both Harvard and Howard, as well as a call to join the ministry as the pastor of the Northwest Unity Baptist Church in Detroit where he still presides.

When asked what sets him apart from other lobbyists he says, "I've counseled both the policy makers in corporate suites and the policy breakers in the streets."
