Managing Partner | 7DS Associates
Rob Hahn is the founder and Managing Partner of 7DS Associates – a strategy consulting firm specializing in creative solutions rooted in strategic analysis and data.
With a varied background from finance, corporate law, technology, product development, media and entertainment, startups, fashion and even as a professional card player, Rob brings a unique perspective to business problems. Rob started in real estate at a specialized commercial real estate investment firm investing in airplane hangars (true story!). He moved on to Realogy, where he headed the interactive marketing for Coldwell Banker Commercial. Rob writes the well-known blog Notorious R.O.B., where he opines on topics in real estate, technology, marketing, and strategy through far-too-long posts. He is a prolific speaker at industry events, such as Inman Connect, T3 Summit, local, state and National Association events, as well as weddings and bar mitzvahs. Somehow named to the Inman 100 Most Influential People list despite his best efforts not to be noticed, Rob understands that with great power comes great responsibility. Conversely, he notes that with very little power comes very little responsibility.
He is a graduate of Yale University with a degree in Philosophy. Unfortunately, the Wall Street Philosophy Banks were not hiring when he graduated, so he decided to add a law degree from NYU along with student loans the size of a good mortgage. He is a refugee from New Jersey currently residing in Las Vegas, Nevada with his wife and business partner, the amazing Sunny Lake Hahn.
