Spotlight On: Rodrigo Zetina-Yglesias

Rodrigo Zetina-Yglesias is currently the Nantucket Pop-Up Store Manager, check out what inspires Rodrigo…

I am an Executive Assistant turned Nantucket Pop-Up Store Manager at Alex and Ani

I’ve been working at Alex and Ani for about a year now

My most inspiring quote is: “If I am not for myself, then who will be for me? And if I am only for myself, then what am I? And if not now, when?” Hillel the Elder

I can’t put down “The Iliad” by Homer; “How Soccer Explains the World: An Unlikely Theory of Globalization” by Franklin Foer; and anything by Malcolm Gladwell. Regardless of any book I read, I always find myself reading a chapter, or two, or the entire book, on any given day.

Albums: “3 Rounds and a Sound” by Blind Pilot and “Wasting Light” by Foo Fighters. Songs: “American Girl” by Tom Petty, “Just Like Heaven” by The Cure and “Scar Tissue” by Red Hot Chili Peppers Guilty Pleasure: “Pumped Up Kicks” by Foster the People have been on repeat lately

My style is not to subscribe to labels, just look my best. However, I can often be seen Rocking the suit and tie around the office. A V-Neck, jeans and sneakers are preferable whenever else possible. Keep it stylish and keep it simple, my friends.

My favorite movie of all time is a tie between Scent of a Woman and Top-Gun… and James Bond. Any James Bond!

My favorite TV show: 1-101: Entourage. It’s over? Entourage DVD sets 1-8, again and again…

One of my most cherished memories includes any Christmas with my family. Family is family. Christmas is Christmas. Latinos are… different.

My favorite things about Alex and Ani are the fans and our Charity by Design department! I love to look around and find people out wearing their Alex and Ani, hear their stories and about how much they love their bangles! It brings me an absolute sense of gratification to know that Alex and Ani can make people happy and at the same time, contribute back to society. Organizations such as the Hasbro Children’s Hospital and Tuesday’s Children, to name a couple, do the same on a day-to-day basis. That’s why I’m so proud of Carolyn and the CBD team: They work hard every day to make people smile! Oh, and for that… Operation Smile!

Today I am spreading positive energy through assisting customers pick out gifts and pieces for themselves, friends and family.

I am inspired by my family. I am blessed with their love and all the opportunities that they’ve provided me all my life. They are so smart and hard-working… I am very proud of them and all they’ve accomplished. I owe them everything: who I am, where I am, where I’m going and where I end up (at the top!)… It’s all thanks to them. I love ‘em!

I’m wearing my St. Christopher, Newport Folk Festival and Hero charms on a leather necklace today and every day!

I love Alex and Ani because of the amazing and talented people I have the honor, and pleasure, to work with every day. The entire Alex and Ani family… I am blessed to be part of such a unique culture and a company that consistently strives, and achieves greatness. We are growing so fast and we are doing so many new, different things… just take a look at what we’ve accomplished: It is a direct result of the gifted and hard-working minds that I get to learn from every day. Plus, everyone is so Rock and Roll! I love it!

My all-time favorite Alex and Ani piece is the Byzantine Coin necklace that Hilary Rhoda wore in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. They’re so beautiful!
