ABOUT

Jonathan Marquardt
President

I have loved selling since I opened my first lemon-aid stand in grade school.  When I graduated college, I opened a coffee shop in Madison, Wisconsin which eventually turned into two shops and a roastery.  Owning a business taught me an enormous amount about customer service and what it takes to make a success.  I joined YETI as a member of its first sales team in 2013 holding a few different leadership roles in HR, International Sales, B2B and Custom.  

I work with each of our portfolio brands as a contract general manager, head of sales and general.  Many of our clients are looking to expand from a DTC only business to a meaningful presence in the wholesale market.  While the way we shop has changed dramatically, the power of touch-see-feel to connect with a new customer hasn't...it has just evolved. 

 

As a consultant I bring ideas and excitement along with a dedicated focus to producing results.  I look forward to learning about your business and sharing how we can help you achieve your goals!

Jake Marquardt
Agent - WI/IL

I love the outdoors and enjoy spending time with family and friends!  

Since joining the Sales Collective I have been on the road making it happen and building relationships along the way.  Being part of this team is a great experience and I'm proud to represent a group of strong brands.

When I'm not on the road spreading the word...I enjoy skiing, hiking, camping, grilling out and spending time on the water.
