Meet Ron Nemetz, a passionate entrepreneur and small business owner. Ron started his career in the US Army. There he spent 10 years working as an Operation NCO and US Army Recruiter. In 1998, Ron decided to use the skills he learned from the Army and pursue a career at Monarch Technical Services. Here he spent 8 years as the recruiting and staffing manager. Ron is now the managing member and founder of Nemetz Insurance Services, where he specializes in helping micro businesses (20 or less employees) and entrepreneurs attain health insurance.
Ron shares his experience as a volunteer with EGBI and how you can get involved too.
Hi Ron! To get started, would you mind telling us a fun fact about yourself?
11 years ago, I somehow convinced my wife to move to Austin from Chicago
without her ever being to Texas before.
How have you volunteered for EGBI?
I’ve done some presentations and classes on Health Insurance for EGBI’s Small Businesses series.
Why do you think it is important to volunteer?
Sharing knowledge to start up companies in order to help them with a roadmap to future success only helps us all as a society.
“Newly created Small Businesses are the lifeblood of any community, providing them building blocks for success helps our community as a whole.” – Ron Nemetz
Why is it important to volunteer at EGBI?
EGBI provides knowledge and tools that if taken advantage of properly can help a new small business avoid making the mistakes of other failed small businesses.
In 2020, EGBI volunteers put in more than 130 hours to help EGBI support and serve over 400 small businesses. Volunteers like Ron make this possible and continue to help EGBI pursue their mission of training, coaching, and supporting aspiring and existing business owners who face barriers to growing a successful business.
