- Jonathan Foltz To Lead New Technology and App Division of BRGO
On January 5th BRGO announced that Jonathan Foltz will be taking a new role at Bergio International, heading up the new technology, WEB3, and app division.
It's been about 22 months since Aphrodite's was acquired in a cash and BRGO stock deal to take Bergio International to a new digital level. Since Aphrodite's deal, BRGO has also acquired Print-On-Demand and SAAS brand Gearbubble. BRGO is looking to grow its holding company with additions of newly acquired talent in the technology and marketing space.
Jonathan Foltz is one of them, former President and Co-Founder of Aphrodite's, who is known for building, growing, and scaling companies quickly - with more than a dozen companies under his belt. He is now looking to take on a new role in the public company and will be stepping down from the helm of Aphrodite. He is taking on an advisor role at Aphrodite's and stepping into a new role to create a new research, innovation, apps, and technology division of BRGO.
Jonathan is passing the temporary President helm to his long-time business partner and co-founder of Aphrodite's, Umer Hadeed. This was an easy choice and natural progression of leadership because of their past in building companies together.
After the acquisition, a lot of changes were created to set a new foundation for Aphrodite's to fit into the public company. Vertically integrating to get direct jewelry production, leaning the company in and out, adding new data analytics tools after the IOS14 changes, laying down the proper financial measuring tools, and changing internal shipments to a 3PL company to concentrate on what Aphrodite's does best: Marketing & Product Development.
BRGO sees the rising tides and is looking to stay ahead of the new changes in technology and is excited to announce the new arm of the company. The BRGO team also understands that technology is moving quicker than ever before and is making sure that they are at the forefront of this. Applications and SAAS will comprise mainly of e-commerce apps and will transition further into Artificial Intelligence, WEB3, Blockchain, and Exponential Technologies.
