  1. Leaders come from all walks of life, but are ultimately united by key characteristics that serve as the basis for their success. Jan Bednar, ShipMonk’s founder and CEO, is a prime example of someone who thoroughly embodies such traits. Bold and ambitious, Jan never passes up a challenge or hesitates to take a calculated risk. After all, it’s no easy feat to go from a sole business owner based out of his college dorm room to the CEO of an organization with over 1,000 international employees. And, despite the demanding nature of his position, Jan maintains an open door policy, providing his expert problem-solving skills across every team and department. Jan and ShipMonk have been recognized by such prestigious publications as Forbes’ 30 Under 30, Inc. 5000 (for three consecutive years), Deloitte Fast 500 (for two consecutive years), and Entrepreneur 360. As a testament to Jan’s committed efforts to build on company culture, ShipMonk was also named as a Top Workplace by South Florida Sun Sentinel as recently as 2021. Jan’s biggest accomplishment, however, is his ability to prioritize human connections and encourage growth within individuals. He understands that strong leadership means supporting others with transparency, optimism, and unwavering dedication.
