Perhaps the most surprising and disappointing failures in leadership at Empire Avenue was Paul Steinbrueck, CEO of OurChurch.Com.
Paul claims to be a Christian however wasn’t interested in exerting his leadership responsibilities as customers were being openly threatened and doxed by Gareth Davies and other leaders of Empire Avenue.
It’s quite hard to “work from within” when the first meeting with Mr. Sandys on my blog brought for false accusations and request that extensive abuse be kept “off the record.”
The abuse of customers by Gareth Davies and others led to a CA DoJ investigation into Twitter’s handling of the open and predatory abuse on Twitter.
Additionally the San Francisco DA’s office opened files twice to intervene.
Consider wisely before you hire Paul Steinbreuck of OurChurch.Com.
You have no idea what tremendous abuse he overlooks, and whom might come to visit you through your connection to Paul.
Empire Avenue, of which Paul has been a part of for years as a customer then leader, has an extensive record of attacking their own customers.
According to Chris Voss of The Chris Voss Show,
Over 5 posts on my blogs I documented issues with Empire Avenue, from their rogue volunteers, running a “wall of shame” on Brands, attacking Brands reputations online, not answering complaints, having a “goon squad” of endorsed volunteers attacking customers who complained, refusing to discipline internally thereby encouraging more attacks on Brands, etc. What I witnessed was the worst travesty in the annals of customer service I have ever seen. After a month of private discussions with EA to change things, I went public. Only then did they begin to change, but the attacks on me and others grew by their “goon squad.” In the end, I went to EA’s Angel Investor and EA had to shut down its Chat Room and Chat Mod “goons squad.” EA shamelessly has never apologized or produced it damning chat logs as promised by their CEO. This is one of those posts, you can read the rest by Search in the upper right for ‘Empire.’ Don’t play EA or if you do save your REAL money.
Be careful who you hire, they may seem ok, but their associates can be just out of this world.
Gareth Davies has threatened peoples mothers and children.
Paul didn’t want to know.
Never let your religion or conscience get in the way of business, I guess.
