Rob Solomon

Founder & Chief Strategy Officer

Serial entrepreneur Rob Solomon is our Founder and Chief Strategy Officer. His extensive experience launching, growing, and operating businesses has culminated in the unique, innovative venture that is our beloved Bulldog.  
 
Rob is all about challenging the status quo. His natural curiosity makes him particularly adept at uncovering how companies should position themselves, go to market, and reach their customers. He also can’t sit still for more than three minutes, so he keeps himself exceptionally busy.
 
Case in point, Rob currently serves on several corporate and nonprofit boards. He’s the founder of the Austin Chapter of Entrepreneurs' Organization (EO) and an active member in World Presidents' Organization (WPO). And he serves on the teaching faculty of the Acton School of Business, where he teaches Growth & Customers in their MBA program.  

Rob has a Bachelor of Business Administration from The University of Texas at Austin. In his pre-Bulldog days, he was the founder, chairman and CEO of USOL Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: USOL), a telecommunications company with offices and operations all over the United States.
 
FUN FACT!
Rob rocks—literally. Every marketing pro secretly wants to be a rock star. As the drummer of Austin indie rock band, Driver, Rob is living that dream for all of us.

@#%& Email!

How many emails do you get in a day? On average, I receive almost 200 and that doesn’t include the 50 or 60 that Microsoft Outlook, in its infinite wisdom, determines are really junk. Let me break that down a bit more…if you assume I get 85% between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.—that’s 170 emails or about 14 per hour. That’s one email every 4 minutes.
