Jeff Schumann: Why I Turned Down Facebook

01/28/15
@ 05:30 PM

Nationwide Parkwood Conference Room

United Way LINC members heard from Jeff Schumann, Director of Digital Marketing and Enterprise Collaboration for Nationwide. Jeff shared his personal story of how a passion for building web startups in his spare time led to an offer to work with Facebook and how he ultimately made the difficult personal and professional decision to follow his heart and stay in Columbus. Afterward Jeff joined the attendees at a local pub for a meet and greet.

Jeff Schumann's work has been recognized in the Wall Street Journal, Fortune Magazine, Forbes, CIO Magazine and the Harvard Business Review. He attributes much of his success to his "move fast and break things" mentality.With previous experience at Yahoo, CBS and other tech companies, Jeff has successfully launched more than a dozen web start-ups on his own time and takes pride in his ability to design and develop innovative products that exceed customer expectations. Although still heavily involved in start-ups, Jeff also leads a world-renowned team at Nationwide focused on build ing game-changing technologies that help employees be more productive.
