What is the history of YES, Inc.?
Young Executive Spirit (YES, Inc.) was founded in 1988. At that time, the purpose of the business was to create networking opportunities for middle management (“Young Executives”) to meet colleagues in the publishing and financial industry. To achieve that goal, we started throwing social networking events where several hundred people would attend. Once the events grew in size, we realized that this was a captive audience that companies would be interested in reaching, so we started selling corporate sponsorships for the events.
In 1992, the business model changed and we decided to get involved in larger events. For 12 years, YES was retained by the organizers of the NYC Marathon to represent and sell sponsorships for the marathon and their weekly road races. During our tenure, we developed many strategic marketing ideas for the organization that eventually became the standard at many races, around the country. Our agency not only sold sponsorships but assisted our clients with marketing, promotion and execution.
Today we are a full-service marketing and promotions agency that specializes in health and fitness events. We work with Fortune 500 companies as well as smaller privately owned firms.
