Marlon Campbell’s Transition from Entertainment to Banking

Marlon Campbell’s Transition from Entertainment to Banking

By: Jason Gerber

After selling all his intellectual properties in the entertainment industry, Marlon Campbell embarked on a transformative journey, leaving the United States for Dubai. 

This move signified more than just a change in location; it marked the end of his 31-year tenure in the music and film sectors and the beginning of a period of reflection and strategic planning for the future. Having enjoyed a career filled with financial stability and worldwide travel, Marlon was determined to find a new direction that would not only fulfill his personal ambitions but also ensure a secure and prosperous future for his children.

A Successful Yet Uncertain Past

Marlon’s career in the entertainment industry was marked by numerous achievements. He collaborated with influential figures, traveled the world, and lived comfortably. However, despite the substantial buyout of his intellectual properties, Marlon remained concerned about the long-term financial security of his children. 

His goal was to prevent them from enduring the struggles he faced, such as finding investors, securing loans, or establishing partnerships to pursue their dreams. This commitment stemmed from his own experience of growing up fatherless and understanding the value of such support.

A Mentor’s Insightful Suggestion

While in Dubai, Marlon spent considerable time with his mentor, DJ, discussing life and future possibilities. During a lunch at Dubai Mall, DJ proposed that Marlon start his own private bank. This idea resonated deeply with Marlon, who had the financial resources and knowledge from his film fund management to make it a reality. DJ’s suggestion ignited a new ambition in Marlon, leading to the creation of Osher International Banking & Trust.

Forging a New Partnership

As Marlon began the process of creating his bank, he introduced DJ to Madam Hynn, a brilliant woman with a significant stake in a large African financial institution. A chance meeting with Madam Hynn at a grocery store led to a pivotal conversation. Both Marlon and Hynn decided to partner directly with each other. Their shared vision and complementary skills made the collaboration feel right. Remarkably, they realized they had met a decade earlier at an event in Atlanta, highlighting the serendipitous nature of their partnership.

Launching Osher International Banking & Trust

In October 2019, Osher International Banking & Trust was officially launched. Marlon planned to return to the US for the holidays and explore investment opportunities in Guyana. However, the emergence of the coronavirus pandemic disrupted global travel and investment plans. Adapting to the new reality, Marlon decided to establish bank locations in the US temporarily.

Adapting to the Pandemic and Seizing New Opportunities

During the pandemic, Marlon leveraged his network to secure a significant opportunity. A South Korean official contacted him to secure the payment and delivery process for PPE supplies using financial instruments. This venture not only provided substantial commission payments but also expanded Osher’s business reach into new markets.

Post-Pandemic Growth and Continued Success

After the pandemic, Osher International Banking & Trust experienced remarkable growth, expanding to five countries and increasing its business by 937 percent by the end of 2023. This success led to the implementation of private security for Marlon’s family, reflecting the new realities of their affluent lifestyle.
