The POZCAST: Career & Life Journeys with Adam Posner

BEST OF #thePOZcast: E17 Jamal "Jay" Salim: Leading People & Talent In The Realest Way

Episode Summary

Continuing the trend, for those of you that have been following along my career journey you may have noticed that I have some guests on that have been integral to my career journey and my next one, Jamal “Jay” Salim is certainly one of them. Jamal was the head of HR when I joined Boombox aka Ergo Interactive. It was a shortstop in my career before I moved over to Vayner but it was critical as I learned a ton in those few short months about myself, tough clients and finding success inside a small agency. More importantly, I made a lasting friend and powerful business connection with my man Jay. Most recently, Jamal was the People Lead at Complex, where he is leading the culture of the company synonymous with culture. Prior to Complex, Jay led the HR department at Laundry Service, an Ad Age Top 10 Agency two years in a row, and Cycle Media. Like me, he is Brooklyn Born, him in East Flatbush and me in Sheepshead Bay, which we both take a lot of pride in. Jay is also a Veteran of the US Army, having served in Operation Iraqi Freedom, another aspect of him that I hold in the highest regard. When he is not building an empire over at Complex or rooting for the Brooklyn Nets you can find him scouring the universe for the hottest kicks or being front and center at the Jay-Z private concert. I love this dude and sure you will as well as we dig into all things TA, HR, Team building, Culture and a whole lot more. Enjoy and please comment and give a review/rating if you enjoy!
