A former finance professional at Lehman Brothers, Adam Robinson's career took an unexpected turn after the 2008 financial crisis. Inspired by his roommates who had created Vimeo in their shared apartment, Adam embraced his inner marketing wizard and set his sights on a new adventure, launching Robly, an email marketing company. With no prior tech background, he grew the bootstrapped startup to $5M in revenue in just two years, earning it the #1 spot in customer satisfaction.
As an iconoclastic thought leader, Adam has always been on the lookout for groundbreaking ideas. When a cutting-edge identity resolution feature he added to Robly gained immense user interest, he seized the opportunity to pivot. With an 8-figure exit, he founded GetEmails in late 2019, later rebranding it as Retention.com. Today, the company stands as a testament to Adam's innovative spirit, transforming anonymous website visitors into authenticated first-party data and unlocking unparalleled high-ROI marketing flows, all powered by a lean team and zero external funding.
