We’ve been trying to figure out who we are for some time now. In fact we have befuddled therapists for many years. Some of us just continue to fuddle.
Robb Wexler, President/CEO
As a 40+ year media and media research/analysis veteran Robb has worked in radio, radio research, media research, social media research, public relations, advertising and political media consulting and for 28 years has been the President and CEO of National Aircheck.
This means he has spent most of his life working for minimum wage and knows the owners of most Motel 6’s coast to coast.
Robb has the unique ability to identify the title and artist of virtually any song from 1955 to 1985 after hearing a second or two. He wins a lot of free drinks for us at bars.
Robb is also the co-owner of “The Wexler Group” a political media consultancy unique in their ability to provide raw data as well as work with both sides of the political aisle and provide expertise on media and social media related issues.
He enjoys fishing, volleyball, writing, ribs, Springsteen, Chicago pizza and anything that has to do with Hawaii other than poi.
(NOTE: This is normally where we’re supposed to talk about Robb’s educational background and his degrees. Yeah, he has those but we are also privy to how he actually spent all those years in college. We are not impressed….although we are amused).
