As the first point of contact for our clients, Chris offers invaluable insight to help sellers and buyers reach their full potential before and during, and after the sale of their business. Chris also serves as the Head of Business Development for Global Wired Advisors, leveraging his background in sales and digital marketing to grow our brand. For the past seven years, he has focused exclusively on high-level consulting for multi-million-dollar omni channel, digitally native, and Amazon-based private label and re-seller brands.

Chris is especially adept at finding Client Companies that are poised for sale, guiding them through the initial steps, and preparing them to make the best possible first impression.

Jason is a serial entrepreneur, having owned and operated several successful businesses before founding Global Wired Advisors with Joe Hogg, Chris Bodnar, and Chris Shipferling. In addition to his success growing and selling small to mid-sized businesses, Jason has almost 20 years of experience in investment banking. He spent the early years of his career executing capital markets trades for Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 companies, honing skills that would later help him buy and sell both traditional and digitally native businesses at a profit.

Now, Jason applies his expertise to our Client Companies, looking for unique opportunities for buyers to make a return on their investment, maximizing the value for our clients.
