NEW YORK, Dec. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Movado Group, Inc. (MOV) – On Tuesday, December 8, 2015, Movado hosted the Turn 2 Foundation's 'Jeter's Leaders' to celebrate an evening of entrepreneurship, education and entertainment featuring jazz artist Bryan Carter, 24, and vegan chef and cookbook author, Chloe Coscarelli, 28. Students from the Jeter's Leaders program were presented with the opportunity to learn more about the culture of innovation, and how two aspiring young entrepreneurs have transformed their passions into real business enterprises. The evening's theme was inspired by Movado's history which began in 1881 when a 19 year old entrepreneur founded the company.
"Tonight's celebration illustrates what can be accomplished with vision and passion at any age. Bryan and Chloe have followed their dreams through discipline and commitment – we congratulate them for their dedication and thank them for demonstrating how an entrepreneurial mindset can change the course of your life," stated Mary Leach, Movado Group's CMO.
Juilliard graduate Bryan Carter has achieved remarkable success in a relatively short period of time, having played and recorded with many notable artists and performed at recognized venues throughout the world. Bryan is a passionate educator who conducts master-classes and clinics to ensure the art of jazz music will endure throughout generations to come. Chloe Coscarelli, a life-long vegetarian and vegan for ten years, has turned her passion for healthy living into a successful business enterprise. An award-winning chef and best-selling cookbook author, Chloe earned national attention after winning the Food Network's reality-competition series "Cupcake Wars." In 2014, she partnered with Esquared Hospitality to launch by CHLOE., a fast-casual vegan restaurant located in New York City's West Village with plans to open a second location in NYC's Flatiron early 2016. Both Bryan and Chloe shared their inspiring stories and 'up close and personal' insight into their passionate, entrepreneurial journeys. Following the presentation, the students were treated to a tasting of vegan treats from by CHLOE. and a performance by Bryan Carter and his jazz quintet.
"The Turn 2 Foundation has grown tremendously in the nearly two decades since we began, and our impact today is wider and broader than I could ever have imagined," said Derek Jeter. "Without the support of our partners, none of it would have been possible. I thank Movado for its continued generosity and support through programs such as tonight's event, an experience that reflects our mission to help young people reach their full potential by fostering leadership, academic excellence, healthy lifestyles and social change."
The Turn 2 Foundation was established by Derek Jeter in 1996 and is managed by his sister Sharlee Jeter who serves as the organization's President.
