Meet Paul Krenelka

Paul Krenelka Owner & CEO of Grand Forks Best Source (GFBS) started his education pursuing a career in the Fine Arts with an emphasis on Oil Painting and Drawing. Like all great artist’s this led Paul down the path of being a waiter to make ends meet, but because of Paul’s hard work ethic and attention to detail he worked his way through the ranks of general management and has successfully grown multiple companies. With over 15 years of management and sales experience he knows the value of getting a solid return on your advertising dollar and knows how to meet your local advertising needs. A family man now Paul decided to leave the corporate world to create his own legacy for his children to inherit. This is what brought Paul to come up with the idea of GFBS. Growing up in Grand Forks and watching the town lose its local news station and newspaper Paul saw the future of podcasts as a means to bring media back to the community, giving Grand Forks an identity again! When he isn’t working, Paul spends his time riding his motorcycle and soaking up the wind therapy. He also enjoys taking his family on camping trips to see and spend time in nature. Paul understands the enjoyment of fine dining and a good glass of Pinot Noir. If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.
