Two weeks ago, REDBROWARD exposed Broward School Board candidate Allen Zeman’s endorsement by controversial “mega-lobbyist” Neil Sterling. He was the adviser embroiled in the school board corruption cases that lead to the imprisonment of former School Board member Beverly Gallagher. After endorsing Zeman for his “laser-like focus on ethics,” the Sun-Sentinel pooh-poohed the Sterling endorsement as “thirteen year old news.” But records show deeper ties between Allen Zeman and Neil Sterling.
Yesterday, REDBROWARD revealed The Center For Human Capital Innovation, a company founded by Allen Zeman, gave $35,000 to the “Keep Students First” political committee. This committee was created by Zeman’s campaign treasurer Yolanda Brown.
According to State corporation records, the registered agent for Zeman’s Center For Human Capital Innovation was Garry Johnson, a Fort Lauderdale attorney. Johnson served as the registered agent for another Zeman owned company, Education AI.
In its 2022 filing with the State of Florida, Allen Zeman is listed as the current registered agent for the Center For Human Capital Innovation. The address listed for Zeman is 330 S.W. 2nd Avenue Suite 215 in Fort Lauderdale.
According to published reports, Federal and State documents, the address currently used by Allen Zeman has been used by SRG Technology, a company owned by Neil Sterling. A Federal Securities And Exchange Commission (SEC) filing lists Garry Johnson as an executive with SRG Technology.
Garry Johnson is listed as general counsel for SRG on the Blender Solutions website. Neil Sterling’s Blender Solutions provides virtual services for school districts in Georgia and Florida. Blender is deeply involved with the Palm Beach School District.
On Tuesday, REDBROWARD visited suite 215 at 330 SW 2nd St in Fort Lauderdale. Two men in the office did not know anything about Allen Zeman or SRG Technology.
Two week ago, REDBROWARD asked what Allen Zeman would do if Blender Solutions sought a deal with Broward Schools.
