Rob Swanson is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, mountain sports enthusiast, surfer (getting better!!!), and creator. He began his professional career in 1995 as part of Lockheed Martin’s Leadership Develop Program, his talents were quickly recognized by top leaders at Lockheed and client organizations he served.
In 2008, he created a strategy & management consulting firm, RAS & Associates, that achieved a cumulative growth rate of 35% over its 9 year history prior to being sold to a publicly traded technology firm. Rob’s consulting experience served as a sandbox to blossom his creative and entrepreneurial talents – serving as a window to see how many different industries thrive, decay and evolve.
Rob lives a life of inquiry, experience, and curiosity. Many times Rob’s life has been forever altered by shadow, change and joy. It is this curiosity and commitment to look within to ground, reassess and then evolve to create meaningful life experiences. Rob currently serves on several boards and is co-founder of a mindfulness technology platform that is currently in stealth mode with a targeted launch in late 2019.
