Hackettstown, N.J.  – Entrepreneurial giant Stephen Bienko is scheduled to address Business Strategies students on the topic of “It’s not WHAT but WHO, How Entrepreneurs Discover Themselves” at 6 p.m. October 29, 2013, in the Edward W. Seay Administration Building.

Bienko will be discussing entrepreneurship, business plans and funding requests.  In addition, he will review life success motivation, the importance of hard work and incorporating communication, teamwork and community participation within one’s business plan.  He will share his own experiences and will conduct a question-and-answer session after his presentation.

Bienko is currently the largest owner of the College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving brand, with offices in New Jersey., New York., Nashville, Cleveland and Dallas.  As the largest owner of the College Hunks brand, Bienko hopes to continue the quest to educate and assist the commercial and residential markets to recycle, re-use and conserve products.  Its moving division is set to create true transparency in the local moving market.

Bienko has been involved in sports marketing and athlete management for the past 10 years.  He has designed and implemented some of the most successful marketing initiatives in the Olympic sports division.  He spent two years driving the marketing of 2008 Olympic Gold Medalist in the Decathlon Brian Clay.  Clay’s face appeared on the cover of the Wheaties box two times in one year.  He also graced the cover of over 10 magazines, which is the most since Bruce Jenner.

Bienko has recently been featured on FOX News and has been featured on Bloomberg TV, AMC and BRAVO and in The Star-Ledger, Wall Street Journal, The Tennassean, Luxury Life Magazine, NJ Monthly Magazine and many more.

“We are so fortunate to have Mr. Bienko speak with our class next week,” says Professor Lee Esposito, Adjunct Professor of Business at Centenary College.  “This is a value-added opportunity for our students to learn from someone who is extremely accomplished, and gain insight from him. It is my hope that this experience will inspire them regarding their own future endeavors and encourage them to be creative and not be intimidated at the prospect of hard work and diligence.”
