Top companies are always led by the greatest visionaries. Centel Media has found two great visionaries in Chief Executive Officer Jack Cola and Chief Operations Officer Danielle Steffenhagen, a team that has reshaped the company and established Centel Media as the top-rated online reputation management firm.
A CEO must hold a distinct, unique perspective that will challenge the usual and discover the unimagined. Cola proved his worth through the rapid change in culture at Centel Media that he initiated within mere months of his young tenure at the company. Through the acquisition of Quest Continental, a $1.3 million software purchase through BPN Asia, and the offer of financing options for Centel Media products and services through PayPal, Cola has led the firm on a meteoric rise that expanded and strengthened what the company could offer and pushed the business to the top position in online reputation management.
However, Cola wasn't able to do it all alone. Steffenhagen, previous CEO and current COO, built the company's standards in day-to-day operations and helped the firm find its footing during this period of rapid change. Bringing her skills learned as outgoing CEO, Steffenhagen has managed the many moving parts of Centel Media and proved to be a crucial ally to Cola. Their teamwork has changed the online reputation management business, but this isn't the first time Cola and Steffenhagen have worked together.
Cola and Steffenhagen came from opposite sides of the country, with Cola being a native of New York and Steffenhagen a native of Sacramento. Cola is a decorated war veteran who earned a bachelor's degree in criminal justice and a master's in jurisprudence, eventually solidifying himself as a respected figure in the consulting world. Steffenhagen, on the other hand, attended San Francisco State University, where she graduated with a degree in print and online journalism.
These two may seem like they're from two different worlds, but it was at the Lucentra Corporation that they crossed paths for the first time. Cola, a rising star at Lucentra, took on Steffenhagen as his staff writer. It was during this time that Cola and Steffenhagen built a dynamic chemistry, one that carried over to their work at Centel Media. Now, with Cola as CEO and Steffenhagen as COO, they have teamed up once again, with plans to continue to prove Centel Media to be the best in online reputation management.
