President & Founder
a.k.a. "Boss Man"
Employee Network, established in August 1998 by Arizona native Steve
Kogan, was a 2 a.m. brainstorm that has built the 13 year old company
that exists today. His vision was to develop a place where trusted
merchant partners could advertise discounts to the corporate employees
in the Phoenix Metropolitan area.
The Employee Network member base started with one company's 9,000
employees, who benefited by having one clear concise place to find
ALL of their available employee discounts. The discounts that are
offered to Employee Network Members are managed on a daily basis
by The Employee Network staff rather than the corporations.
Steve recalls, "In August 1998 we started with just 9,000 employee
members from one major corporation and today our member base is
over 500,000 from more than 91 of the largest corporations and government
agencies across the nation."
With an experienced staff, The Employee Network continues to bring
in quality vendors who are happy to offer a discount to our exclusive
always thought the only way to get into the workplace after school
was to market herself, and what better way than to be in business
for herself and pursue an industry she enjoyed.
She started out in the fitness industry and gradually moved into
nutrition while all the time finding gratification in helping others
meet their goals. In 1983, she went into Promotional Advertising
at ground level not knowing anything about the industry. Eventually,
Tena moved up in the industry - starting in order entry, accounting,
sales and becoming an owner in 1993. Through those ten years, she
learned how important quality, price and integrity really means
to her customers. The Employee Network became a natural progression
from advertising - enabling her to utilize her strong beliefs in
great customer care and assisting others with their travel/various
other employee discount needs.
Tena says, "It
is very rewarding to have customers with such sincerity thanking
you for saving them time and money."
