Jimmie Lenz


Dr. Jimmie Lenz is a clinical assistant professor of finance at the Darla Moore School of Business. He is an experienced executive, lecturer and scholar in the field of banking and capital markets.

Starting his career as an equity and derivatives trader over 25 years ago, Jimmie found he reveled in fast moving atmospheres that required both strategic thought and the ability to take immediate action.  His successes propelled him into a number of senior management roles within the finance community including leading an NYSE broker dealer with foreign and domestic operations, chief risk officer and chief credit officer at a top-three broker dealer, and the head of predictive analytics for one of the largest wealth management firms in the U.S. 

Global financial services firms and exchanges have engaged Jimmie to address issues related to strategy, analytics application, risk mitigation and business efficiencies.  This in-depth understanding of the capital markets industry has allowed him to provide crucial perspectives in foreign and domestic regulatory matters, including the presentation of findings to the Security and Exchange Commission.

Jimmie holds an undergraduate degree from the University of South Carolina, a master of science in finance from Washington University in Saint Louis, and a doctorate in business administration-finance from Washington University’s Olin Business School.  Jimmie currently serves as the chairman of Neocova’s Strategic Advisory Board, on the board of directors of Zen Blockchain Foundation, on the Risk and Uncertainties Board at the University of South Carolina and on the board of the Center for Finance and Accounting Research.  He frequently speaks and publishes on topics leveraging innovation and quantitative analysis and has a number of pending patents related to his work.
