Name: Jeremy M. Seltzer
Any nicknames? Way too many… J, J2, Seltz, Bubbles, Moozers, Woobie, “Ba’ali Hayakar” … just to name a few
Position: Director of Business Development - really, my focus is on building Wrapp’s retail relationships in the Northeastern US. I get to work with the best brands in the world.
Hometown: Philadelphia, PA. Go Eagles!
Currently working in: New York City
Why Wrapp? I’ve never been surrounded by a more motivated, talented, or fun group of individuals. Wrapp is building a truly disruptive technology and we’re ready to upend the world of social/digital retail marketing. Great idea + huge market + experienced leadership = amazing opportunity for me to apply my background in building strategic partnerships and grow professionally….what’s not to LOVE?
Favorite Wrapp purchase: When adidas joined the Wrapp platform, I had no choice but to go out and grab a bright red jumpsuit, complete with matching red adidas sneakers. I mostly just wear it around the house to feel cool :-) … check out the picture at the bottom of this post…
Hidden talents: I play a few instruments - but mostly saxophone and piano. I’m also a YouTube hit for my first wedding dance with my beautiful bride, Liora. I wouldn’t say dancing is a “talent” of mine necessarily, but I don’t typically shy away from the stage! (Check it out)
Coolest Trip You’ve Ever Been On: Tough question - I did a lot of traveling throughout Europe and Middle East while living abroad in Israel. I’ll go with my honeymoon - 1 month in Vietnam and Thailand. We had a wild experience, including an 18 hour train ride down the Vietnamese coast to cliff jumping in Railay Bay. Then again, Wrapp’s global meeting in Stockholm earlier this year was pretty darn cool.
Can We Find You on A Saturday Night: Probably at a Jazz Club in the West Village. Gotta love NYC.
You’re an Expert on: Israelis and New Yorkers (for the most part, these are the same), with a growing expertise in Swedes. I’m also a total nerd for music theory, fantasy baseball, and molecular orbital theory.
What Was Your Dream Job When You Were A little Kid: Either a professional athlete or a nobel prize winning scientist. I still think I have plenty of time to get both of these done.
On your bookshelf: 4-Hour Workweek, The Lean Startup, The Intelligent Entrepreneur, Retail Marketing Strategies, Retail Marketing & Branding…you could say I’m a bit consumed by my work.
On your nightstand: Sports Illustrated, The Economist, 50 Shades
On your playlist: Ben Folds, Dispatch, Guster, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane and a boatload of broadway musicals.
