Husband, father, avid traveler, and aspiring climber (just to name a few).
Rob Gaedtke rejoined the KPS3 team as Vice President of Creative Services in 2010, was named President & CEO five years later. He views his role as a straightforward one: Set the vision of KPS3, and empower everyone to achieve it. Rob spends his days supporting the team and encouraging collaboration—an approach that earned KPS3 a spot on the “Best Places to Work” list in 2017, 2018, and 2019. With more than 15 years of digital and traditional marketing experience to his name, Rob believes there is no challenge to grand for the team at KPS3.
Rob grew up a math and science student with a passion for design and drawing, and always knew he wanted to merge the two in a career. He earned his B.A. in journalism with an emphasis in advertising and a minor in marketing, and worked as a graphic designer for KPS3 from 2004-2007. Rob then joined One To One Interactive, where he led the travel and tourism practice.
A long-time board member of the Children’s Cabinet, Rob volunteers his time regularly throughout the Reno community. He is the recipient of an array of design and interactive awards, was named one of Reno Gazette-Journal’s “Twenty Under 40” winners for 2011, and earned the title of AAF Reno’s “Ad Person of the Year” in 2017.
Whether building an ottoman, a website, or a team, Rob is inspired by the strategy and creativity it takes to put separate pieces together in a way that allows them to function as one. With a designer’s eye and a mechanic’s mind, nothing fuels Rob more than a solid set of data and (lots of) gadgets. As a husband, father, and CEO, he’s never one to shy away from a challenge—in or out of the office. Next up on his neverending to-do list? Climb El Capitan.
