SS+K is proud to announce that one of our founding partners, Rob Shepardson, has been appointed to the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition, an honor that reflects his long involvement with public health in America, as well as his athletic accomplishments.
Rob, an adjunct professor at Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health, was instrumental in the launch of LIVESTRONG, the foundation that inspired millions of people to take a stronger stance against cancer. Rob also led the SS+K team that helped create and launch “Let’s Move,” First Lady Michelle Obama’s program to counter the obesity epidemic plaguing young Americans, which just celebrated its 4th anniversary.
An avid sportsman, Rob’s athletic glory days did not end when he hung up his cleats as the quarterback of his college football team. To this day, Rob fuels his passion for fitness by running and this past Monday, completed the 2014 Boston Marathon in 3:36!
Rob lives what he loves, as a business strategist, an athlete and as an advocate for public health. We look forward to what he accomplishes along with his fellow Council Members. We’ll book a conference room for co-chairs, Drew Brees and Dominique Dawes any day.
