Kimberly McCollumGlobal Operations Business Analyst
As Regional Program Manager of Africa, Central Europe, and Eastern Europe at FGI, Kimberly McCollum’s passion for immigration law stems from her desire to help others to achieve their dreams. “Any support, confidence, or guidance that I can provide to an individual making their way through the immigration maze,” she says, “is a way that I can make a difference and offer support beyond the paperwork.”
Her professional experience includes 13 years in various capacities of international project and program management, government contracting, business development, and marketing. Before she joined FGI in 2014, Kim was Director of Program Management for a firm that specialized in translation and localization services for Fortune 500 companies. She oversaw the project management process for the firm’s top clients that included leading automotive and marketing firms, among others and such governmental agencies as the Department of Defense and the Department of Agriculture. She brings to FGI both an impressive skill set in project management, continuous improvement, quality control, and talent mobility and a background in working with leading firms in the IT, architecture, and automotive sectors.
Since becoming part of our FGI family, Kim has acquired extensive expertise in facilitating global immigration objectives for clients in Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, South Africa, and other major companies and has mastered such business-based immigration technologies as INSZoom, FGI’s online case management system.
Kim earned a Bachelor of Arts from Oakland University and a Master of Science in International Business from Walsh College. She is a member of the Walsh College Ambassadors and has held memberships in Inforum, Toastmasters, Women in Defense, and the National Defense Industrial Association. In her spare time she enjoys yoga, mindfulness and mediation, cooking, and spending time with her dogs, Murphy and Mickey. She describes her career philosophy as “’Leave people better than when you met them,’ To me, this sums up how I want each foreign national, client, and Fakhoury team member to feel after working with me.”
