Before becoming treasurer, he served as deputy state finance director under Governor Bob Riley. Prior to entering government service, he was an executive vice president at Colonial Bank. Born in Birmingham, he was raised in Tuscaloosa.
Boozer was born and raised in Alabama, both in Birmingham and Tuscaloosa. He attended Stanford University for his undergraduate degree in Economics and later earned a master’s degree in finance from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. After graduation, Boozer launched a career in finance. His resume includes working for Citibank in New York and Crocker National Bank in Los Angeles, to Coral Petroleum in Houston and Colonial Bank in Montgomery.
His entrance onto the political scene came in 2007, when he left his job as Executive Vice President at Colonial Bank to become the Deputy Finance Director for the state of Alabama, serving under then-Gov.
