Steve Kogan
President & Founder
a.k.a. "Boss Man"

The 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 membership program.

Tena Kogan
General Manager
a.k.a. "Red"

Tena 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."

David has been involved in The Employee Network since he was just a child. Born is Arizona, but raised in California he found his instincts were to return to the place of his birth and moved back to Arizona 9 years ago. He achieved an Associate's degree in Accounting before pivoting his attentions to the elusive science of computers.

When he steps away from the mysterious arts of the keyboard he enjoys playing basketball, socializing, and the gentlemen's activity of whiskey tasting. Though he prefers a lowkey life, his name has been thrown in the ring for the next Most Interesting Man In The World position.
