Hi I’m Jon,
At Gruen I lead our agency’s sales and marketing team. For me however, it goes much deeper than simply building our client portfolio. I have sat in the same seats as many of the potential partners I speak with on a daily basis. Having led client-side marketing teams for most of my career within a variety of companies, ranging from Fortune 1000 to small and local, I understand the challenges many of our clients face daily. In knowing this, I desire to craft customized solutions through Gruen’s services to make your lives easier and grow your bottom line.
It all starts with relationships for me. I don’t want Gruen to solely be your digital agency, I want us to be your true partner and an extension of your own team. I enjoy speaking with clients about the important things in their own lives and not just business, so never be afraid to strike up a conversation and have some fun. Most of the time we make life’s problems far too serious. Let’s have some fun along the way and solve them together!
When I’m not working with potential clients I enjoy spending every moment that I can with my wife and our three children. For the most part you will find me either coaching travel baseball, watching gymnastics meets, or trying out a new restaurant with my wife. When I do have a few moments to myself, I enjoy golfing, skiing, reading books on leadership, and have recently taken up road biking. Last but certainly not least I am a bit of an enthusiast when it comes to two things; the first, University of Michigan football, and second; learning anything and everything I can about WWII.
