Omar Soliman, a business management major, attended the University of Miami in Coral Gables, FL. His senior year, Omar enrolled in the school's entrepreneurship class, and submitted his business plan for College Hunks Hauling Junk to the Leigh Rothschild Entrepreneurship Competition. Omar won first place and $10,000 in the competition for his business concept, which included junk removal, helping to relocate college students, and an online junk exchange.
Soliman's creative mind comes naturally. Since the sixth grade he has helped his mother market her furniture store in downtown Washington, DC. He has also helped his father, who recently retired from 30+ years of government service, with a number of profitable investment decisions.
Upon graduating from the University of Miami, Soliman secured a job at the Advisory Board Company(NYSE: ABCO). As a Marketing Associate at ABC, Omar learned how to interact with his clients and educate them about the company's products. The daily grind of a 9-5, however, did not suit Omar's entrepreneurial spirit. Therefore, Omar linked up with former high school classmate Nick Friedman to form COLLEGE HUNKS HAULING JUNK®.
