Rodolfo Saccoman, spent ten years as the Director of Online Marketing at The Breakers Resort in Palm Beach establishing & growing their online presence as well as developing several software systems. Rodolfo switched gears thereafter and began a career in investments at Morgan Stanley. In his spare time, he went on to co-found MyTherapyJournal.com, which won the University of Miami’s prestigious Business Plan competition before going on to win on ABC’s “Shark Tank,” season one. After his success with MyTherapyJournal.com, Rodolfo decided to break the status quo to build AdMobilize.
Based in Miami, Florida, AdMobilize has brought together some of the world’s top technological minds from places like Cornell, MIT and institutions around the globe. Their consistent drive to create a new paradigm of advertising has allowed them to develop groundbreaking technology that was typically restricted to Palo Alto, Boston, and Seattle.
As they put it... "Our goal is simple: to change the rules of advertising. With innovative technology never before seen in the offline world, we're establishing new roles for brands and consumers alike."
