Park Ridge Executive Network

The Park Ridge Executive Network (PREN) is "one of a kind" in its scope and structure. Its non-compete members meet monthly to sharpen their networking skills, build relationships, and most importantly to share leads and referrals. Help your business grow by getting involved in this excellent avenue for new business. Additional groups are formed as the interest presents itself. So, come and join us one and all. There is always room for leads and referrals.

To see current members please select the PREN group below.

Are you looking to develop long last relationships both personally and professionally in 2018? You might want to join PREN 1, which is a non-compete referral group. The PREN 1 group had over 200 referrals between our members in 2017. If you have any questions about the group, please feel free to reach out to Frank J. Ponticelli at 847-803-9911.

PREN2 provides a great opportunity to network for business leads and referrals while also getting support on a variety of business related topics. The primary goal is to help each non-competing member achieve greater business success. PREN2 members meet on the first Friday of every month except when holidays conflict with the schedule. For information about joining PREN2 contact Gerry Waller at 847-825-7761 or by email.

In addition to leads and referrals, Pren 4 emphasizes community involvement, and we discuss local issues and upcoming events in the area. Many of our members are associated with city boards and charitable organizations. If you are looking to make an impact in the community while promoting your business, then Pren 4 is a perfect fit for you! Our meetings are more relaxed than some of the other groups and usually include a few good laughs. No paperwork or formal presentations required in Pren 4. While we typically meet on the third Friday of every month at Beer on the Wall/ Off The Wall at 8:30 a.m., we occasionally have evening outings to support local members while having some fun! Contact Steve Judge by email at or at (847) 962-2833 for additional details.
