Rob Palardy

Account Manager, ca. '21

“All right, brain. You don’t like me and I don’t like you, but let’s just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer.”

Homer Simpson

Rob brings over a decade of higher education and in-house agency experience to Vital. His CV includes managing clients, running integrated marketing campaigns, and developing engaging content strategy.

Rob began his career in college athletics where he marketed student-athletes, coaches, and teams in alignment with enrollment goals before graduating to an institutional-wide communications and marketing role. His passion for sport is still alive and well, despite his inability to consistently break 90 on the golf course.

You’ll usually find Rob strolling around in Sperrys thanks to his boat shoe designer wife, Meaghan, or toting around his two kids, Teddy and Dillon.
