Currently serving students in more than 30 states and benefitting students at more than 3,000 schools nationwide, Apex Leadership Company is proud to serve and help the nation’s youth take their fundraising efforts to the next level. Leadership of each branch is what makes each one so beneficial to students and impactful to their efforts, which is why Apex Leadership Company is thrilled to announce that Indiana-born and raise Robb Reed has acquired the branch serving communities in his home state including his town of Greenfield, as well as other areas in central Indiana — Indianapolis, Avon, Greenwood, Greencastle, New Palestine, Plainfield, Mooresville, and Franklin.
Of his new role with Apex in Indiana, Robb says, “I’m extremely excited to begin my journey with Apex and positively leave my mark on the communities in Indiana that matter so much to me.”
A native Hoosier fan, athlete and educator in his own right, Robb was inspired by his grandfather, the first principal of Greenfield-Central High School, to pursue education, community and athletics. Robb taught German to elementary school students within a program that his grandfather created and also played varsity basketball and tennis when he attended Greenfield-Central High School.
In his professional career leading up to his acquisition of the Central Indiana Apex branch, Robb spent 20 years in retail management working for major brands from Fossil to Apple, at the latter of which he says, “I developed skills and a passion to serve and provide the best service possible regarding experiences of talent development and engagement.”
When Robb witnessed an Apex Fun Run first hand at a program event in Seattle, he instantly saw himself in a position to create opportunities from which those in his own community could benefit. “To improve a child’s experience in the classroom and on the court was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up and that I wanted to passionately be a part of,” he reveals, adding that he loves the ability the Apex programs have to offers schools and organizations a healthy, fun and successful means to raise funds to improve their experiences. “The character lessons that our Live/Flex programs offer to elementary schools help to shape the future of our communities for the better,” Robb adds.
Robb is currently working with local high school athletic programs to help them utilize the Anython program to support their fundraising needs for the upcoming season. He looks forward to establishing and maintaining additional relationships that can help his team deepen roots in the local communities and to support these teams and groups through Anython so they can achieve their fundraising goals. “It is a win-win for everyone involved,” he adds.
