Jay Ostendarp, a Territory Leader with RevLocal, was born in Lexington, KY, but grew up in Charlotte, NC, and has been in the area ever since. He holds a B.A. from the University of North Carolina and earned his M.B.A. from Wake Forest University.
Prior to joining RevLocal, Jay owned his own marketing consulting agency for over fourteen years, helping primarily healthcare practices and other small businesses develop strategic and tactical marketing plans. Owning his own business gave him a unique perspective on the challenges and rewards of operating and growing a local business.
When asked why he loves what he does at RevLocal, Jay responded that “today, the marketing process all starts with getting found online. I discovered RevLocal when I was searching for the very best digital marketing products and services to offer to my own consulting clients. I was so impressed that I joined to team in 2017 to be able to help even more businesses find success in attracting new customers.”
Outside of work, Jay loves golfing and playing music with his close friends in a local cover band in Charlotte. As a huge sports nut and a former college athlete at UNC, he can also be frequently found watching and cheering on his beloved Tarheels, as well as the Carolina Panthers and Charlotte Hornets.
