Rob Shore has over thirty-five years of experience in financial services, with twenty-five of those years spent in distribution. His proven background in corporate America has provided him with a reputation as a leader who has been recognized for innovation, results, creativity, and, most importantly, extraordinary sales success.
Rob was part of the "new wave" of brokers in banks circa 1987, and he cut his wholesaling teeth at OppenheimerFunds, where he helped build Oppenheimer's early entry into bank distribution as one of the channel's founding wholesalers--and where he maintained the number-one wholesaling rank for four consecutive years.
Later, as president of Allstate Distributors, LLC, Rob led the activities of cross-channel product distribution and marketing that produced over $30 billion in top-line sales and
achieved 30 percent annual compounded sales growth.
Today he is the CEO of shorespeak, L.L.C., which publishes WholesalerMasterminds.com, the leading online destination for financial services wholesaling professionals and the "Wholesaler Masterminds Radio" podcast. Rob was the publisher and editor-in-chief at "I Carry The Bag" magazine, the official magazine of wholesaling, and has authored two
'Brotherhood of the Bag" books.
He is a frequent speaker at national sales conferences and divisional meetings and devotes his extensive private coaching practice to two groups: wholesalers and their leaders.
Rob lives with his wife and a gaggle of small domestic animals in the California wine country.
