Bill Blasing – President & CEO – Leadership
Bill began his role as President and CEO of Junior Achievement of Kansas in April 2023. Bill brings years of business leadership (for-profit, non-profit, and small business ownership), as well as non-profit executive experience, to Junior Achievement to help the organization grow and have an even greater impact for the youth that Junior Achievement of Kansas serves.
Bill lives in Wichita, KS with his wife (and sweetheart since 3rd grade), Gina. His favorite "warm weather hobby" is cruising around in his classic 1971 Chevelle Malibu, his first car that he purchased in high school with money he earned working at the local gas station. Bill has a true zeal for Junior Achievement's three pillars of entrepreneurship, career readiness, and financial literacy as his life and career history have touched all of these pillars personally.
