Bloomfield Hills, MI

CEO of Life 2000 Ltd./The Life Chest, Troy, Michigan. Yost, CEO of The Life Chest and author of Pumpitude: My Journey from CEO Wife to CEO Wife, first tested the entrepreneurial waters in creating her own line of toys after a successful career in dental sales. She ultimately turned her attentions to her husband's (Art Van Furniture CEO Kim Yost) project- a way for people to hold their most treasured memories, replacing the old shoebox of family collectibles with an heirloom quality chest for all treasured keepsakes – The Life Chest. The company partners with such brands as Overstock.com and Dignity Memorial. Yost last year presented President George H.W. Bush with a Life Chest on his 90th birthday, something she says is her proudest career moment.
