The TBJ describes the 40 Under 40 Leadership Awards as follows: “Who are the faces that will shape the Triangle in the years to come?  These are the people we highlight in our 40 Under 40 awards.  For 22 years, we've recognized the Triangle’s best and brightest business and community leaders who are making their mark and promising to do even more before the age of 40.” This year’s winners represent a wide range of sectors in the Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill area, including technology, healthcare, financial services, higher education and more.

A partner in Womble Bond Dickinson’s Capital Markets group, Fogleman represents banks, non-traditional lenders, and borrowers in a variety of finance transactions, including term and revolving facilities, construction facilities, asset-based lending, and receivables financing. Fogleman also represents owners and developers of commercial real estate in purchase and sale transactions and leasing matters. Some of his specific successes include:

  • Representing the lender in a $36.5 million combined term loan and line of credit facility for the refinance of a multi-tenant medical office building; 
  • Representing the lender in a $47.9 million construction loan for the development of a student housing project; and
  • Representing the tenant in negotiating a lease for approximately 61,000 square feet and building signage rights in an 18-story Raleigh office building.

Fogleman’s community leadership includes serving on the Poe Center for Health Education’s Board of Directors since 2018. He recently completed a term as President. At the Poe Center, he has managed board and executive committee meetings, served as the board liaison to the executive director, participated in many committee meetings, and advised the executive director.

From 2018 to 2021, Fogleman served on the Board of Directors of the Capital City Clauses, a volunteer group of young professionals in the Triangle that raises money to bring toys to children in need (including one year as Board Secretary). In this capacity, he helped organize the annual Jingle Ball, which is the Capital City Clauses’ largest event.

He also spends a significant amount of time handling residential closings and general corporate matters on a pro bono basis for Habitat for Humanity of Wake County.
