Youcruut was established by Youtech, an innovative and dynamic marketing agency with offices in Illinois and Arizona. Led by CEO Wilbur You, Youtech was built from humble beginnings but has grown into a multi-faceted business with a total of over 11,000 square feet of office space. Though we originally started as a web design company, we have since expanded into advertising, branding, mobile app development, SEO, traditional marketing, and much more.
The vision for Youcruut was to start a recruiting company that could match qualified job candidates with employers in the many industries we’ve found most useful to our own business. Our recruiting team uses their own experiences to find the most qualified applicants, matching them to roles made specifically for their knowledge and background.
The Youcruut Team
Wilbur You, CEO / Founder
Wilbur started Youtech with the last $600 to his name and the help of his two other teammates. His claim to company-wide fame came from his inspirational goal to personally call 100 companies on a daily basis offering to build their business website for $500. While you can be sure he faced plenty of rejection, his persistence paid off leading to the company now standing with two locations that house over 40 employees.
He has a Bachelors Degree in Computer Science from Northern Illinois University, as well as a Masters Degree in Business Management from Keller Graduate School at Devry University.
Lauren Urban, COO
Lauren began her career with Youtech as a graphic designer back in June 2013. Her hard work and dedication quickly boosted her up the ranks to the role of Creative Director, where she served faithfully until reaching her current role as Chief Operating Officer (COO). Her passion and superior organization skills have made her a perfect fit for the position, allowing her to continually flex her creative muscles whenever possible.
She has a Bachelors Degree in Graphic Design from Eastern Illinois University and is currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Marketing from the Keller Graduate School at Devry University.
