About RMI

Meet Our CEO, Ken Robbins

RMI CEO & Founder Ken Robbins got his start in business when he dropped out of Georgia Tech and earned his real estate license. He began knocking on doors—sometimes 150/day— and became the youngest board-certified multi-million dollar producer at age 24. The man behind one of those doors was a veteran ad agency owner who recruited Ken out of real estate to start a new initiative at his then agency, BKV, and eventually backed him, founding RMI in 2001.

In 2006, Response Mine Health founder and CEO Ken Robbins was severely injured in a head-on collision with a drunk driver. After a difficult surgery and six months of physical therapy, Ken could finally walk again. Despite this victory, his sedentary lifestyle and poor diet would catch up with him. By 2011 Ken weighed 326 pounds. It was time to make a radical shift.

Inspired by his physically-fit, health-conscious employees, Ken lost 100 pounds and found a new focus. He decided to leverage his more than 20 years’ experience in direct response marketing to refocus the digital marketing agency he founded in 2001, Response Mine Interactive. Today, Ken concentrates on empowering businesses and providers who align with his vision of a healthier, more equitable world as he leads our two divisions — RMI Fusion & RMI Services.

Ken has been featured in articles in Inventor’s Digest, Atlanta Business Chronicle, Strategic Healthcare Marketing. Ken has also been a featured contributor to the best-selling books, Socialnomics and The Digital Leader.
