Over the past several months, 914INC. has scoured the county seeking the most successful twentysomething business minds and entrepreneurs in Westchester. We called scores of companies. We emailed countless business organizations. We set up an online nomination form. And we asked and asked around. Our goal was to find men and women under age 30 who are, well, business wonders. We found 24. (Actually, 25, but the PR department of a certain retail company—you know who you are—doesn’t allow its employees to do press interviews, ever. Boo!). Over the following pages, get acquainted with Westchester’s future movers and shakers.

Social Media Butterfly
Kristen Ruby, 23
CEO and Founder, Ruby Media Group,
White Plains


 

Kristen Ruby graduated from Boston University’s College of Communications less than two years ago. In that time, the Waccabuc resident, social media and PR maven, and personal branding consultant has led workshops at Columbia University, lectured to Microsoft, written for the likes of Forbes and the Wall Street Journal (she blogs forWestchester Magazine too), and, oh yes, founded Ruby Media Group. “I never stop working,” she says.

“She’s incredible,” declares David Cingari, 49, founder of David’s Soundview Catering in Stamford, Connecticut. “She’s accessible twenty-four/seven. If I want something posted, it’s up there in seconds. She’s incomparable even to people my age.”

Ruby says she wants to grow her business to the national level over the coming years. “You have to conquer the world when you’re young and you haven’t been run down by corporate America.”
