Rob McClinton

CEO, Mentor, and Coach in Monrovia, California

Read my blog

I'm Rob McClinton and I've worked for a number of technology start-ups including GoTo.com (now Yahoo Search Marketing), X1 Technologies and Oversee.net. I cut my teeth in sales and moved into executive management.

Since then I've launched Designing Nation and Small World Communications. Both are dedicated to providing commonly needed online services in very uncommon ways.

And, between those two, I continue mentoring and coaching people to achieve their goals.

Professionally, I specialize in building sales organizations, defining sales processes and identifying new market strategies. I also have strong sense for operational efficiencies. I bridge the gap between the needs of the market and those of the organization comfortably.

Personally, I believe everyone should be free to express their creativity in whatever form it takes. I was taught an appreciation for the humanities and encourage my teams and mentorees to pursue a variety of interests to build their most well-rounded selves. You can read more about that on my blog, Artistic Leader.

I'm also a rabid Chicago Bears fan, lover of science fiction and have an appreciation for Grey Goose.
