Karleton Thomas

Karleton Thomas is a business professional with extensive experience in retail, eCommerce, apparel manufacturing, and social enterprises. He previously was chief operating officer at LocalLux, a high-end boutique marketplace and a sales director for an Alexandria Va. based tech company. As a University of Illinois graduate and four year letterman football, it was during those years that Mr. Thomas was introduced to the blues by a teammate from Mississippi. It is the storytelling and strength of spirit that the blues invokes that draws Mr. Thomas to work on behalf of preserving it for future generations.
