C12 Chair since 2004
Tony Tennaro founded Cornerstone Initiatives in 2004 in order to bring C12 Group programs to the business community of Greater Charlotte. He sees his mission as helping business leaders align their work with God’s agenda, releasing the transforming power of Jesus Christ into all they touch. Tony enjoyed a successful career in sales, marketing, and general management, both in large corporations, such as the Quaker State Corporation and Black & Decker, and in smaller entrepreneurial companies. He now brings the benefit of his experience to others, across a range of consumer and industrial markets, products, and services. As C12 Chair, he enthusiastically serves marketplace leaders, sharing his love of business strategy and performance, integrated with his foundation of faith. Tony is also available to speak at conferences on the topics of “Your Next Right Move: How to Make Wise Decisions and Advance Careers,” and “Recalculating Route: a GPS for Getting Back on Course and Staying There.” The love of his wife, daughters, sons-in-law, and grandchildren gives Tony daily opportunities to “rejoice and be glad” from their home in Waxhaw, NC. “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” (Ephesians 2:10).
