senior vice president, design & ideation
Nate Young brings over 35 years of experience to teams locally and internationally, facilitating a culture of creativity and idea-sharing. Nate currently serves as senior vice president of design and ideation at Newell Brands.
After receiving his undergraduate education from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Nate began working for Prince Corporation. He was later promoted to group vice president, where his responsibilities expanded to include over 350 staff members. Nate used this collaborative experience to co-found the consultancy TWISThink, and to found NewNorth Center for Design in Business. During this time, Nate’s expertise was sought out by Newell Brands. The results of his work were so profound that he was asked to join the team permanently.
Nate’s leadership has led to the institution of culture, community and collaboration. It’s this ability that has brought him such significant results. His belief in design as a strategic tool has been more than beneficial, it has proven to be monumentally different.
