Who Are The Brains Behind ACN?
ACN was established in 1993 after four aspiring businessmen, fed up with the current network marketing industry, came together to launch a new company. A company built on shared ethics; a company that was fair. Today, ACN is still operated and managed by the four original co-founders: Greg Provenzano, Robert Stevanovski, Mike Cupiz and Tony Cupiz. Each is actively involved in the running of ACN and have a role to play.
Provenzano began his career in network marketing in 1984. After 5 years in the field, he made Senior Vice President. Although he was successful, Provenzano felt frustrated and unsatisfied with the industry, and decided to make it on his own. Provenzano’s main role is to motivate, lead and train ACN’s many distributors. Provenzano is also Chairman of WorldGate Communications, Inc and Delta Three, Inc.
Stevanovski started working in network marketing in the late 1980s. Growing up, he learned many of his management techniques from observing his father run their family restaurant. He learned how to deal with employees, customers and vendors- skills which has transferred to ACN. Stevanovski is described as being a “vital player in managing the company’s day-to-day business operations” and his strong passion and determination was one of the main driving forces to the formulation of ACN. Stevanovski is also Chairman of WorldGate Communications, Inc and Delta Three, Inc.
Unlike Provenzano and Stevanovski who only worked in network marketing in the 1980s, Mike Cupiz started and ran several of his own businesses which made high levels of revenue. Mike Cupiz’s main role in ACN is to oversee the company’s expansion into foreign markets, and is heavily involved in training representatives. Mike Cupiz seems to be the most optimistic in terms of ACN’s future and sees the potential demand for their products. It is this passion and belief that seems to be spurring ACN forward.
Tony Cupiz’s role in ACN seems to be training based. He is heavily involved in developing training programs and direct training of representatives. Tony Cupiz’s role also includes managing all of ACN’s marketing programs and foreseeing the overall direction of the company.
What Are ACN Hiding?
Finding out additional information about the four co-founders is proving to be a difficult task. It would appear that their private lives are just that: private. Any information besides what is provided on the official ACN is hard to get hold of. When searching online for information on any of the co-founders, all that can be found is slightly edited versions of the bios on the official page, much like what is written above. This makes me think, what are they hiding?
On further research, there also seems to be a fifth co-founder, J.D Sullivan, who ACN have ignored altogether. Perhaps Sullivan prefers to keep a low profile, perhaps they have all fallen out. It could be due to his retirement from ACN, and the bio page is reserved for active members.
