Bob is a founder and Executive Chairman of InvestingChannel. As Executive Chairman, he is strategically involved in all aspects of the business.
He and Nikesh originally started online consulting firm Giant Step Strategies (GSS) which eventually became InvestingChannel. They successfully helped major financial media companies develop and grow their digital revenue initiatives by developing forward thinking media strategies, unique partnerships and industry best practices. InvestingChannel grew from the relationships, opportunities and industry evolution that Bob and Nikesh identified while building GSS.
Prior to founding GSS and InvestingChannel, Bob led TheStreet.com’s four revenue divisions including advertising sales, product sales/marketing, business development and product development driving 200% revenue growth in less than 3 years. Prior to TheStreet, he joined the founding team at Beliefnet and built and managed the company’s ad revenue business. In the late 90’s, Bob headed up iVillage’s revenue initiatives including the advertising and business development team of 80 employees responsible for growing revenue to over $75 million in annualized sales.
When not traveling the country with the sales team or settled in the NYC office, Bob enjoys down time with his wife and canine companions at their mountain retreat in Vermont
