Robert Sofia achieved business success at a remarkably young age. By 22, he developed a revolutionary marketing model for which he gained international recognition within his industry. By 24, he was hired as vice president of marketing for a renowned wealth management group where he went on to acquire his General Securities and Investment Advisor registrations from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). At 26, he became vice president of a financial planning corporation managing over $180,000,000, and that he is still a part of today. Early in 2009, Robert simultaneously cofounded a marketing consultancy where he currently acts as chief operating officer.
