NBC “Talk Stoop” personality Cat Greenleaf hosted Deloitte CEO Joe Echevarria along with six New York City VEI student CEOs on steps of her popular Brooklyn brownstone where she interviews actors, musicians, athletes, politicians, and others. While sitting on Greenleaf’s signature stoop, Mr. Echevarria shared leadership advice as the students reflected on what they have learned by running a virtual business.

Mr. Echevarria commented:

“Virtual Enterprises didn’t exist when I was growing up…as a South Bronx native and product of New York City public schools, it would have been an exciting program to be a part of when I was in high school. VEI provides unique opportunities for students, and it was a pleasure meeting each of these remarkable students and learning about their companies and experiences as CEOs.”
