Landon Eckles found himself at a crossroads in life. After spending 5 years in sales and management in the pharmaceutical industry in his early career, Landon moved into a Managing Partner role for Rose Rock Group, a global investment management firm specializing in Asia specific projects, in 2012. Although this career was exciting and enlightening, the weeks of international travel that this position required was not conducive to the healthy family life that was a priority for Landon. In 2014, he decided to take a step back from Rose Rock and founded Clean Juice with his wife, Kat Eckles. They moved to Charlotte, NC and launched their flagship store and the rest is organic history. Landon puts his faith first and is inspired daily by entrepreneurship, leadership, and business and team management. He is a member of the Charlotte, NC area Vistage CEO group, is active in his church, Elevation Lake Norman, and spends the rest of his time with his wife and 5 young children. Landon graduated from Moravian College with a B.A. in Business Administration in 2007.

Kat Eckles, a self-proclaimed recovering Taco Bell addict, found her passion for all things wellness in 2007 after having her first daughter. Spending the succeeding years diving into the dynamic world of nutrition, she became obsessed with the indisputable benefits received from eating an organic and plant heavy diet. In 2014, she and her husband Landon decided to translate this passion into a business and started Clean Juice. She is ruthlessly focused on bringing the highest quality, organic and truly healthy product to the communities that Clean Juice has the opportunity to serve. Kat and Landon recently welcomed their fifth child into the world, so much (ok, all) of her free time is happily spent with her children and husband. Her faith is her foundation and she is so grateful for this journey God has blessed her with. Kat graduated from Wilmington University with a B.S. in Psychology and will finish a health coach certification from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition later in 2017.
