April Nagel – CEO, Founding Partner
April loves developing an idea, building a business around it and working hard to make it a success. As the CEO and founder of a successful recruiting company, April has been recognized numerous times in the business community as a dedicated, determined leader who knows her priorities and lives them. An avid shopper and gift giver, she found it disappointing that good looking, trendy religious jewelry and accessories were so hard to find. Combine this with a love of fashion, color, craftsmanship and religious artifacts and ‘ta-dah’ Christian Bling was born! April sets the direction at Christian Bling envisioning a big future which includes profoundly impacting our Consultants and Customers. A multi-talented and committed entrepreneur, April is delighted that three of her children are gaining hands on experience at Christian Bling.
