About CPN Squared

CPN Squared is itself a small business founded and operated by Chris Gruenke.  My specialty is helping companies build the platform for growth; for young companies that often means establishing the basic business practices such as accounting, financial management, human resources record keeping and how to use information technology.  I’ve helped more mature companies overcome major obstacles preventing their continued growth like inventory management, establishing new product mix and improving cash flow by using the information already in their systems to make better decisions.  


Professional Biography
After a 15 year career with Marion Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, I started my own business in the entertainment industry and I realized that small business was in my blood.  Since then, I’ve been bringing the strategic thinking, process improvement techniques, operational discipline and implementation skills I developed at Merrell Dow to small and mid-market companies in a variety of industries.  I’ve held the positions of VP Operations & Finance, VP Administration, President, CEO and owner.   

I grew up in Cincinnati, went to Walnut Hills High School and Xavier University.  My wife and I are a part of the JDRF Ride to Cure Team; riding our bikes and raising money to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes.
