Critical Mass Business Talk Show: Ric Franzi Interviews Bret Englander, Co-Founder of Cerno Group (Episode 1467)
Bret Englander is the Co-Founder and Director of Sales and Marketing at Cerno. A native of Laguna Beach, CA, a melting pot of artists, surfers, hippies, and entrepreneurs, Bret developed a passion for the natural environment, design, and entrepreneurship in his youth. Bret’s parents ran their own business specializing in product development for the homebuilding industry. This meant many weekends were spent touring the latest completed homes, which Bret credits for his drive and ability to combine the creative and analytical sides of running a business.
Originally, Bret wanted to pursue a career in journalism and film, graduating from the University of Colorado. After working at a newspaper, he decided to switch gears and pursue a career in business, which led to a few informative roles in finance and marketing.
In 2009, Bret teamed up with childhood best friends Daniel Wacholder and Nick Sheridan to start Cerno. As co-founder, Bret wears many hats but focuses his efforts on business development as Cerno’s Director of Sales and Marketing. Cerno is a California-based design and manufacturing company that, over the last 14 years, has grown from three founders to a team of approximately 50 people who share a passion for design and making modern lighting in Southern California.
