Leadership at Online
Online is led by founder and CEO, Chuck Loewen. Under Chuck’s leadership, the company has maintained an unwavering focus on taking care of our customers and sharing ownership of their business objectives. While the individuals profiled below comprise our executive leadership team, we strongly believe in fostering a culture of leadership across the entire company and have formal leadership training programs available to all Onliners. To us, leading is less about being in charge and more about accountability and charting a path forward. To this end, we aspire to create an organization of leaders.
Online in the community
At Online we believe that we have a responsibility to our communities, the environment, and each other. We often say that together we are part of something larger than ourselves – this applies to our business potential as well as our corporate citizenship.
Very close to our hearts is our role as an employer. We are driven by a set of core values and a culture of mutual respect. We celebrate individuality and diversity and promote personal and professional development. We formally track our performance as an employer. The results are transparent and available to Onliners.
While not a large consumer of resources, we still strive to minimize our carbon footprint through minimum-consumption and recycling programs, as well as energy efficient office environments. In our professional practice, we assist clients in meeting their commitments through solutions that enhance their own sustainability programs.
We are very committed to supporting our local communities with a particular emphasis on assisting community-building organizations where Onliners are enthusiastic and active volunteers. We also support our professional community through membership and sponsorship of numerous industry associations.
