Principal Advisor, Luxe Business Partners

DeJuan Lever is currently Principal Advisor at Luxe Business Partners – a Chicago-based firm focusing on cost savings, revenue generation, and additional strategies for organizations. During DeJuan’s 18-year career, he has generated multi-million dollar plus savings for Fortune 500 companies and secured multi-million dollar sales contracts among industrial manufacturing companies. He is the father to three children – London, Lane and Lawson – ages 5 months to 8 years old, and a proud husband to Dr. Karen Fields-Lever – a premier Dentist servicing Chicagoland. His family are proud residents of the city of Chicago, living in the Portage Park neighborhood and members of Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church on the south side of Chicago. Although DeJuan considers himself a Chicagoan, he and his wife maintain their homegrown allegiance to the state of Michigan as avid Detroit Lions and Detroit Pistons fans. He earned a BA in Supply Chain Management at Michigan State University and an Executive MBA at Purdue University.

Why I am committed to Breakthrough:

My commitment to Breakthrough began after meeting the organization’s founder, Arloa Sutter. Her background and story for Breakthrough has benefited tens of thousands of people throughout Chicago. Breakthrough mimics the volunteerism I wanted to replicate during my early childhood back in Flint, Michigan. I want to ensure my children have this very same experience. Breakthrough’s mission, values, and key concepts are tenets all organizations should emulate.
