Suite, Worboys celebrate 20 years at Younger Associates

For most in attendance, celebrating the 20 year careers of Lana Suite and Billy Worboys started at 4 p.m. Thursday.

But talking to Suite and Worboys, it seems every day they work at Younger Associates is a celebration.

“Sharon (Younger) is my sister, but really, I’ve always worked for her,” Suite said, laughing. “I work the research side of Younger Associates – mostly for economic development. It’s both challenging and rewarding, but it’s like a family business … even on holidays, when our conversations drift to work.”

Work that began when Suite and husband Lex, who were living in Lebanon, relocated to Carroll County.

“I can’t believe it’s been 20 years,” Suite said. “The biggest change has been in technology. I remember operating by telephone and fax. Now, information is at your fingertips.”

Sharon Younger founded the full-service advertising agency and marketing research firm in 1990, and the road Worboys took to reach Younger Associates went through Los Angeles.

“I’m originally from West Tennessee, Humboldt, and I first went to Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, California, and that’s where I first discovered graphic design,” Worboys said. “(Later) I was headed for New York and sidetracked to Humboldt, where I was freelancing.”
