Founded in 1993, ACN was the vision of four entrepreneurs - Greg Provenzano, Robert Stevanovski, Tony Cupisz and Mike Cupisz. They had countless years of direct sales experience between them, but were dissatisfied with other companies and job opportunities they had encountered. They realized that the only way to find a company they wanted to be a part of was to create that company.
So with a yellow legal pad in front of them, they formulated a business plan. On one side of the page they wrote down everything that they knew worked well, and on the other side everything that didn't. They ripped the page in half and only kept the side that contained what would become the governing principles behind ACN - integrity, solid business practices, and a commitment to always put the needs of the masses above the needs of themselves. And those are the same principles that drive the company today, over two decades later.
What has ACN accomplished?
From a provider of long distance service in one country, the company has grown to offer a full suite of residential and business services customers use every single day across 26 countries... and growing.
Today, ACN is the world's largest direct seller of telecommunications, energy and essential services for home and business.
But more importantly, they've provided a vehicle for countless individuals to change their lives. ACN is passionate about giving back to the community as well, and in 2011 the nonprofit organization ACN Global Reach Charities was founded to expand and enhance their charitable efforts.
After a series of chance meetings, Greg Provenzano, Robert Stevanovski, Tony Cupisz and Mike Cupisz, were formally introduced and would become the Co-Founders of ACN. Their combined experience and knowledge of the direct sales industry brought them together to form a different kind of company - one that offered essential services that people and business no only want, but need and use every day - a company that would put integrity at the forefront of every decision. Today, they remain at the helm of ACN, overseeing the direction of the business - everything from growth strategies, training and support tools, leadership and personal development, to future opportunities such as growing the ACN services portfolio and international expansion. ACN's Co-Founders continue to lead every facet of the business and share a common vision to set a standard of excellence, making ACN a premier company in the direct selling industry.
