Just who is Vercie? Vercie is an Author, Angel Investor, Philanthropist, Small Business Owner and Former Executive Vice President & Head of DST Financial Services, a $750 MM business, delivering industry leading products and business process outsourcing solutions to Financial Services firms (Asset Management, Brokerage, Retirement, Banking, and Insurance investment firms) throughout the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.
After retirement Vercie published a personal finance self-help book, Make It Rain, with the goal of helping Americans in low- and middle-income communities improve their financial security and accumulate generational wealth. Vercie currently serves on the boards of Heartland (KCK) Black Chamber of Commerce, Avila University, Boys and Girls Club Kansas City, and Wright State University’s Computer Science and Engineering Advisory Council.

Vercie grew up in a family of seven in one of the poorest areas of Dayton, Ohio, where he began his journey to become a multimillionaire. He began investing a small portion of my earnings for retirement and, with my wife Lisa’s help, we’ve accumulated millions of dollars in wealth over the past 30 years. Like most people who amass great wealth in America Vercie learned through lots of trial and error before figuring out the simple solutions contained in Make It Rain.
