Meet Jeremiah Shakespeare, Director of Business Development
When he’s not running after his five children or attending one of their many track and swimming meets, Jeremiah is usually at one of his own sporting events — either on the basketball court or on the links. Since joining Sellen in 2008, Jeremiah has served as a project director and director of Sellen’s Special Projects team, completing tenant improvement work in occupied healthcare and office buildings. As Sellen’s new director of business development, he builds upon our longstanding partnerships and cultivates new relationships.
What’s your favorite golf course?
“The links style courses have always spoken to me. The courses at Bandon Dunes are among the best in the country and a pilgrimage that any true golfer has to make. In the last ten years, Washington State has introduced two links courses that I’m absolutely in love with: Chambers Bay, which is special and unique, and Gamble Sands. Designing and building new courses that feel timeless and allude to the game’s long history with dramatic Pacific Northwest backdrops is impressive.”
What are you most excited about in your new position?
“For nearly 75 years, Sellen has built remarkable projects with very extraordinary clients and the incredible individuals who lead and work at these organizations. It has been an honor to build and foster my fair share of these relationships and I’m thrilled at the prospect of building many more.
“I plan to build bridges at all levels between Sellen and our partners, ensuring many generations to come enjoy the rapports and friendships that have been established.”
What impresses you most about Sellen?
“The talented people that contribute each and every day to building iconic projects. Sellen hires, motivates and inspires an awesome collective of professionals across the company who strive to be the best as what they do. I admire the fact that Sellen has the courage to place people in positions where they can be trailblazers, pioneers and thought leaders. I’m inspired by someone new each day I come to work.”
