At SumAll, we realize it might be hard to realize that there are real humans making this thing happen for you. You might also want to know what we do in our free time. Well, we’re here to help you get to know us.
In an effort to show you who we really are, we’ve created “Meet SumAll,” an ongoing series that will introduce you to members of our team, one-by-one. So far we’ve introduced you to Mahssa and Michael. This time around, meet Scott, one of the maddest, baddest, coolest dudes in all the land.
What do you do at SumAll?
I’m the Head of Business Development. I develop synergistic relationships with strategic partners to drive mutually beneficial value focused on our product, distribution, and brand. Nah, just kidding. I mostly just crack jokes and snack on SumAll’s plentiful supply of free yogurt and Diet Coke.
When you’re not at work or sleeping, where might we find you?
Commuting. Or playing with my kids. But mostly commuting.
What are you currently learning how to do?
I just bought a house in the New Jersey suburbs after 15 years of NYC living, so I’m learning to do home improvement projects. Related: I’m also learning how to mend flesh wounds.
What’s something the rest of the SumAll team (and world) might not know about you?
I was once a semi-professional competitive eater. I went by the nickname Scott “The Tapeworm” Pollack.
Drink of choice?
Before 5pm: Diet Coke.
After 5pm: Whatever’s on tap.
Anything I can grill. 96% of the reason we moved to the suburbs is to have space for a BBQ grill. The other 4% of the reason is good schools.
What are you reading / watching / thinking about lately?
Thinking about synergistic relationships with strategic partners to drive mutually beneficial value focused on our product, distribution, and brand. Always.
What’s your favorite SumAll integration or project?
Don’t make me choose amongst my babies.
Dream SumAll integration?
What are you doing at work when you’re pretending to work?
Reading Facebook and telling people I’m “doing partner research.”
What tools / apps / hacks do you use to keep yourself organized?
Mailbox. Obsessed with Mailbox. Once killed a man for Mailbox.
Ask yourself a question.
Q: Scott, how did you get so goddamn awesome?
A: Maybe I’m born with it. Maybe it’s Maybelline.
