Lawrence, Mass. (May 17, 2012) - Eastern Bank, in collaboration with Massachusetts education nonprofit ACCESS, has honored Lawrence resident and business leader Luis Yepez at the ACCESS First One Celebration for overcoming the odds to become a first-generation college graduate.
ACCESS, a nonprofit based in Lawrence, Boston and Springfield, Massachusetts, works one-on-one with students to help them navigate the financial aid process. It launched the ACCESS First One Awards in 2010 to recognize those who have been the first in their family to complete college and inspire others to do the same.
Yepez, the son of Ecuadorian immigrants, is a top executive at the Lawrence-based Mainstream Global, an independent reseller of computer and electronic components. It specializes in working with computer manufacturers to maximize returns on excess inventories, end of life product, and off lease components. Yepez is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, where he was a systems engineer, and went on to receive a master's in management from the University of Redlands.
Eastern Bank and ACCESS joined together to present the award to Yepez at a ceremony held on May 16 at Chester's at Bell Tower Square in Lawrence.
"Eastern Bank is proud to partner with ACCESS to share and celebrate Mr. Yepez's success story with the community," said Eastern Bank's Joe Bartolotta, Director of Marketing and Product Management.
Stories like Luis Yepez's send an important message to young people in Lawrence: college is possible, and it is definitely worth it."

Luis Yépez
Luis was born in Brooklyn, NY from Ecuadorian immigrants. He grew up in Worcester where he participated in local sports, scouting and was an altar boy at St. Andrews Church. Growing up, he attended boarding school at Valley Forge Military Academy in Wayne, PA. At Valley Forge, Luis found his passion in academics and athletics. Upon graduation, he had become a two time academic and athletic All-American and a two time Wrestling State-Champion. He was awarded the Order of Anthony Wayne, the school’s highest honor.
Following high school, Luis attended the Naval Academy Prep School in Newport, RI and subsequently received an appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy. Luis graduated in 1993 as a Systems Engineer. After graduating, Luis reported aboard the USS VINCENNES, an AEGIS Cruiser, stationed in San Diego, CA. For the next six years, Luis excelled as a Naval Officer being ranked the top Junior Officer in the wardroom, and selected as the ship’s Navigators. He sailed on VINCENNES through two deployments that ranged from the Far East to South America through the Panama Canal and the Caribbean. Luis describes his most memorable experience while on active duty to his participation in Counter Narcotic Operations, which successfully intercepted two drug smuggling operations that resulted in the seizure of over three tons of cocaine and the arrest of several traffickers.
Luis returned to school and earned a Masters in Management from the University of Redlands in 1999. After leaving active duty in 1999, Luis stayed affiliated with the Naval Reserve and moved with his family to Minnesota to work as a Manufacturing Engineer for an implantable pacemaker company.
Luis and his family made the decision to quit their jobs, place a “For Sale by Owner†sign in front of their home, and move back to Massachusetts.
That same year, Luis joined Mainstream Global and became partners with his brother, fulfilling a life-long dream to own a business together. Starting with very limited capital, a solid business plan and a sincere commitment to developing long term relationships based on the simple concepts of being truthful, honest, and delivering what you promise, they began their journey.
This journey has not been without challenges. In 2003, as a Naval Officer in the Reserves, Luis was recalled to active duty to support Operations enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. At the time, Mainstream Global had a total of three employees: Juan, Luis, and an assistant.
Despite Luis’ absence, Juan bore the full responsibility of running Mainstream Global and ensuring it stayed afloat until Luis returned.
As the company experienced continued growth, Luis and Juan decided to move the company to Lawrence, MA and ultimately purchased a boarded-up, run-down 100,000 square foot mill on the Merrimack River.
Luis belongs to a long line of cheerleaders for the City. Whether being part of the Annual Spicket River Clean Up or participating in community development projects, he sees a bright future for the City of Lawrence and has enjoyed being part of the solution.
Luis is a board member on several organizations such as Groundwork Lawrence, Merrimack Valley Chamber of Commerce, and is the President and founding member of the Association of Ecuadorians of New England (AENI), a non-profit organization dedicated to helping underprivileged children in Ecuador. In his spare time, Luis enjoys coaching his children’s sports team. Luis is married and has two children ages 12 and 10.
In 2001, his brother Luis joined the effort and in November of 2003, the business moved its headquarters to Lawrence, MA.
