[Source: Asheville, Citizen Times] – After building Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College’s small business incubator from the ground up, Russ Yelton is heading west for bigger entrepreneurial frontiers.

Yelton is leaving A-B Tech on July 22 to head up a partnership between Northern Arizona University and the city of Flagstaff that will foster an emerging technology program and the creation of several business incubators in the community.

It will be the first time the North Carolina native has lived out of state, but Yelton said the chance to grow a cutting edge business program was too good to pass up.
