Officially Leaving Pepperjam to Pursue New Entrepreneurial Opportunities

By on in Personal Development

It’s with much excitement that I announce that I’ve decided to step down from my role as President of Pepperjam to officially pursue new and exciting entrepreneurial opportunities. At the same time, I’ve been asked by GSI Commerce to serve in the role as a paid advisor to Pepperjam and GSI over the next six months, which I intend to honor.

My decision to depart Pepperjam did not come without serious personal reflection, as well as careful and extensive discussion with family and friends. While I am officially leaving GSI as an employee I intend to lend my full support as an advisor and will stay personally and professionally committed to seeing that GSI’s affiliate marketing strategy remains a success!

Stay tuned to this blog for a series of big announcements over the coming weeks and months about what projects I’ll be working on and where I’ll be opening offices to support my future business goals!

While I’ve been incredibly fortunate to have helped build one of the most successful and celebrated interactive agencies (Pepperjam) and affiliate networks (Pepperjam Network) in the world, I sincerely believe that I have only truly gotten started as an entrepreneur, author, public speaker, advisor, angel investor, and interactive marketing professional….not to mention as a father of two brilliantly beautiful children (Kris Jr. & Lauren) and an amazingly gorgeous, genuine, and intelligent wife (Robyn).

Today was the right day to move on and I am honestly more excited today than the day I founded Pepperjam.

I look forward to using this blog moving forward to keep friends, colleagues, followers, and fans informed about my personal life and career.

Stay tuned!

Thanks for your support!

    Congratulations Kris! I am sure you will do very well in any future endeavors.

    I’m on the mend from my latest car accident. I plan to start back on my P90X on Monday. I will be on day 28, so just a little behind your schedule.

      I fully intend to use NEPA as my hub for future projects…..and intend to get more, not less involved as a Trustee and advisor to Misericordia University.

      Talk to you soon.

      BTW – I’m still waiting on some data to review from the questionnaire we went over at our last Trustees marketing meeting.

    Exciting stuff… A new beginning is something we all secretly crave but few can actually make happen. All the best with your new ventures!

    Kris-Robyn-Kris JR-Lauren: What wonderful and exciting news Kris. I’m not surprised by your decision and look forward to following your continued journey and success within the New Media World. It also great to know you (making your own schedule) will be able to be an active dad as I have been with Josh and Jake all these years. Lots of Health, Happiness, and Success!

      You are one of the brightest and most stand-up guys in the interactive marketing industry….a role model to so many and a close, personal friend and confidant to Robyn and I – thanks for the kind words pal!
