Young Executives: Trendsetters With a Purpose

Young Executives began in 2013 as the Run NC movement. Our founder, Preston Wasson, wanted to give local artists a chance to showcase their talents with contests called “Roc the Mic.” In the following years, the organization expanded to focus more on the community as a whole and eventually evolved in Young Executives. As a soon to be non-profit organization, Young Executives (yE), focuses on raising awareness about business, education, and culture among people of all ages.

The Young Executives know that to leave a lasting legacy, the change must begin with children. With that in mind, CEO Preston Wasson believes that the key to planting the seed early is through fashion. Clothes and the ensuing personal style are a part of the universal language children understand even when they cannot speak.
