Jake Scheideler is the General Manager for Burlington Stores in Grand Island,Nebraska.

I'm a relationship builder. That's why I fell in love with marketing and being a manager, it's all about how we relate to each other and what we feel a connection to. The tricky part is making sure that feeling is communicated in a way that engages everyone! Relationships move me forward. As they've grown stronger, I've found myself as a part of many teams and organizations where I've been able to connect and help with marketing, fundraising, and give great advice. Ultimately, it's these relationships that help me personally and professionally.
