A native of both Washington, DC and Prince George's County, MD, the length of time in, and amount of "moving around" the region, gives Mr. Yeldell a level of familiarity with movers and shakers, potential donors, and sponsors with whom to make a connection or assist in moving along initiatives.

Mr. Yeldell was previously part owner of a marketing company that had several national accounts including Procter and Gamble, Coca Cola, HBO, Camry, Kellogg's and General Mills. His networking organization, Metropolitan Access, was the pre-curser to such entities as Impact-DC and Biznow. He has mentored many and developed lasting relationships with most who have been impacted by his networking capacity, while creating, hosting and executing small gatherings of 50 to 75 people to 2,000 to 3,000 person events and light concerts.

Scholastically, he is a graduate of Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA and the University of Virginia's Colgate-Darden Graduate School of Business, where he received his MBA.

Upon graduating from business school, he performed duties as an investment banker, a marketing company owner, and consultant to numerous businesses in various industries, including hospitality, retail/apparel, leisure activities, athletics, and entertainment. He is a capable writer, having written several books, short stories, numerous essays, as well as business and marketing plans.

It is from each of these areas, interests, networks, and established expertise he draws to further the mission of the Prince George's County Parks and Recreation Foundation.
