He has had assignments in the United States, Germany, Italy, the Balkans, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq.

Simon and Schuster published four of Colonel Seidule’s books in the West Point History of Warfare series, two of which won national awards.

Kyle Schroeder

Founder, The Cremo Company

More

Kyle grew up in the small rural town of Tulare, California. Coming from a family of dairy and cotton farmers with deep roots in the area, he graduated Valedictorian from the exact same High School and Junior High that three of his grandparents and father had attended decades earlier. From there, Kyle went on to study business and graduated from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, leading to jobs in technology and entertainment.

Wanting a change from life in an office, Kyle then began his career as a fashion model. Literally going around the world a couple times he traveled, worked and lived in such diverse places as London, Hong Kong, Hamburg, Barcelona and Sydney.

In 2007, Kyle decided to phase out of modeling and join his friend and mentor Mike Boone in founding The Cremo Company. Started around a remarkable shave cream, Kyle bootstrapped the company from zero to $25 million in retail sales and distribution in over 35,000 national retail doors.

In his spare time Kyle is an active tennis and beach volleyball player, reads a lot and plays video games too.
