While leading the coordination of the family's financial affairs, his goal is for harmony to be maintained across the spectrum of issues facing today's families. Ogunlana founded Axial Family Advisors in 2015, after having spent his career employed by one of the world's largest financial services firms at the time. With extensive community and non-profit involvement since beginning his career in 2001, he has served on the boards of the National Association of Black Accountants, the National Basketball Retired Players Association, the City of Fort Lauderdale Community Service Board, Opa-Locka Community Development Center, and Broward Health Foundation Planned Giving Committee. He currently serves as a member of the board of the American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science, located in Rehovot, Israel.
