Perry also spent three years on the board of directors for the John Rex Endowment as a member of its finance committee, which oversaw investment assets of over $75 mn. Additionally, he served on the credit committee for Generations Community Credit Union in Durham, until its merger with Self-Help Credit Union in 2014, and was on the boards of directors of Mechanics & Farmers Bank in Durham, NC, and its holding company, M&F Bancorp, Inc.
