Charlene G. Rooney,
President/CEO

There is a business philosophy that has served Charlene well throughout her 45 year career and it is that Leadership should provide wisdom with humble confidence. “It takes a team of talented and dedicated people to propel a company to the top”, says Charlene, owner of Freezn, Inc. “and it is in understanding our strengths and accepting our weaknesses that we can bring together a team comprised of the qualified talent needed for each job.”

When her son, Rob came to her with the original concept for Freezn in December, 2010 she understood immediately that the timing was right for a technology company that presented the advantages he conceived for both the consumer and the merchant. Together they immediately began the process of design and development and have never looked back.

Charlene’s started her career in the banking industry at Southern Commercial Bank in the 60’s quickly rising to the top where President, Bob Hawkins offered her the position of Vice President of the Bank of Hillsboro. She chose instead to join her husband in beginning their own, still operational, design/build firm in 1966 and they went on to design, develop and operate the first chain of super pumper gas/convenience stores in the St. Louis area. Their businesses generated over $50,000,000 in annual sales before selling a portion off to Texaco. Having founded and managed several successful companies since, Charlene has worked in most every aspect of business including marketing, purchasing, accounting and operations management. Her experience in Corporate America gives her an intuitive insight for what is needed to head up a successful business. She believes in an open door policy and remains always accessible to the Company’s Customers, Affiliates, Marketing Team and Merchants.

Carla Arrigo
Account Manager

Ask Carla on any given day what her passion is and you’ll easily see it is helping people connect, find ways to save money and get more from life. Carla discovered her passion at the early age of 8, on a quest to get to Summer Camp. Since then, she has always taken life head on and didn’t let what seemed “crazy” by others, hold her back. She’s proven this by becoming a top sales person as a woman selling cars in a male dominated industry and topped sales in advertising for the Spanish Yellow Pages without speaking a word of Spanish, and not to mention a 12 year career at McDonnell Douglas all while raising two children as a single parent. Crazy? Maybe, but for those who know Carla, it’s just an example of her passion and gratitude for such a blessed life.

She loves meeting new people, and is always willing to lend a hand, make a connection, or help you find a deal. Today, she supports consumers and businesses by connecting them together for greater results with Freezn’s Value Driven System
