John Seckel attended Northeastern University. In December of 2003, he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Finance/Accounting and Management Information Systems. While in Boston attending university, John was a member of the Investment and Finance club and a Knights of Round Table Member.
After graduation, Seckel went on to accept a position with the Wachovia Corporation as a financial analyst. At Wachovia, he was quickly promoted on to the position of Vice President of Credit Products and International Banking for the company. John was involved in the purchasing analysis for UBOC, SouthTrust, HSBC and more. In those two years, he was awarded for customer service on $825MM M&A Deal. Based on his investment banking experience, John Seckel uncovered his passion for business and entrepreneurship.
He went on to start Seckel Enterprises, LLC. Acting as CEO and President Seckel began by offering investment consulting from wealthy potential investor individuals to major enterprises and corporations. Working with a host of people, companies, and industries he began to recognize gaps in the market. Seckel began to leverage his contacts, experience and business-savvy to launch ventures of his own to fill these voids.
He currently works on company’s Cheap Social Media, LOExclusive and REExclusive. John sees marketing and social media as an essential part of any business today, but unfortunately, many small businesses and young professionals can’t afford marketing services due to the astronomical prices. This inspired him to launch multiple ventures related to marketing services at an affordable rate. John wants to help other executives and young professionals who are in the same place he once achieved the same level of personal and professional success. His companies help businesses and individuals make the necessary connections to kick-start their careers and business.
Aside from his work in social media, John Seckel is also fascinated and excited about the potential for personalized nutrition to change lives. Having struggled with his own personal health and fitness, Seckel tried a lot of the ‘fad’ diet and exercise plans, but he wasn’t seeing the long-term results he was looking for until he experimented with personalized nutrition. In identifying his personal intolerances and allergies, John managed to balance his energy and see results. Now he wants to help others see the same lasting impact with his personalized nutrition plan company, Lean Soul. Everyone should have the energy and stamina to play with their kids or complete basic work. With Lean Soul, people can stop the fads and start the Lean Soul lifestyle.
Seckel splits his time between Philadelphia, PA and San Diego, CA with ventures all over the United States. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family and playing with his kids.
