Meridian tech CEO heads to reality TV show, “The Profit”

Russell Brunson, founder and CEO of Meridian startup Click Funnels, will appear on Tuesday, Sept. 13, in an episode of the CNBC business reality show, “The Profit.”

The show follows its host, Marcus Lemonis, as he takes control of failing businesses and tries to turn them around. Brunson was invited onto the show to consult Lemonis as he tries to fix a yet-to-be-named company, publicist Andrew O’Brien said.

Click Funnels, at 1860 N. Lakes Place, offers website hosting and software that responds automatically to emails and provides marketing and sales services on a subscription basis starting at $97 a month. The company says it has more than 20,000 users and generates more than $80,000 a month in revenue.
