B. Wayne Hughes Jr. is a businessman, rancher, and philanthropist working to improve the pristine landscape, vibrant culture, and way of living for residents across the USA. In 2013, he founded Serving California, a non-profit that facilitates healing for people who have experienced suffering, including military families, crime survivors, and inmates looking to rebuild their lives. In 2018, Serving California changed its name to Serving USA in order to take on ministry opportunities in additional states.
Wayne began his career behind the scenes at Public Storage, a family company with humble beginnings that blossomed to global success. He went on to enter the commercial real estate business, as well, forming American Commercial Equities, which specializes in the acquisition and management of premier retail property in prime locations and prestigious markets. Wayne is a native of the Golden State, a resident of Wyoming and a loyal USC Trojan, and when he isn’t surfing around the world, he can be found riding horses at one of his ranches in the west.
