Empower Network introduces CEO Jonathan Cronstedt
Empower Network founder recalls meeting and discerning Jonathan was the one…
We introduced Jonathan a little over a year ago with a blog about ‘angry pickles,’ which provided a background to our affiliates on how we met Jonathan and realized he was the right fit for Empower Network as our CEO.
As you know, part of the reason Empower Network works so well is due to the all-star team we assembled for the success of our affiliates and our customers. Everyone on the team brings value to the overall vision of expanding the company, and each team member contributes in a way no one else could. We constantly feed off of each others’ energy and ideas and continually learn from and inspire one another.
Sometimes, our unique culture and business model makes finding the right talent for our corporate team very difficult. However, initial conversations with Jonathan that were supposed to be only a few minutes in length quickly turned into two-hour-long conversations.
Empower Network is a hybrid company that does business online, and under Jonathan’s leadership, we are continuing with our expansion offline, as well. In our CEO search, we had to find someone who would be able to easily understand our vision for Empower Network. As we got to know Jonathan more, we quickly realized he was the one for us.
During a trip to Denver, more than a year ago, Jonathan bonded with the executive team over some not-so-angry angry pickles. If you don’t know, angry pickles are fried pickles that sporadically have fried peppers mixed in with them. What was once an inside joke, now holds a special place in our hearts – whenever you eat fried pickles or angry pickles, be sure to think about Empower Network.
Jonathan was eventually able to spend additional time with the executive team in Southern California and, due to an entertaining incident that took place before breakfast one morning, knew he wanted to join Empower Network.
We’re blessed to have him.
Appreciate you Jon,
