Founder and CEO of 3Strands
Ken Petersen is the Founder and CEO of 3Strands, a unique fashion brand to fight against sex trafficking around the world by supporting common goal organizations. Ken is also the Founder and CEO of Apricot Lane Boutiques, a U.S. chain of franchised women boutiques with 100+ open and planned retail stores in 29 States.
With his entrepreneurial and business background, Ken and his companies hold the expertise to strategically bring attention and support to this cause in a number of retail, social and consumer channels. 3Strands is focused on providing the essential revenue and resources; through the sale of handmade bracelets, to empower, teach and employ young women who have been rescued from the evils of sex trafficking.
When Ken first learned about the lives of sexual slavery these women were facing each and every day, he was so moved to do something to make a difference-thus resulting in the development of 3Strands.
