All of the companies Robert has founded have been built around consumer adoption of new media – except the second-grade newspaper and sixth-grade yearbook published with his twin while attending New York City's PS 6.
Pando Networks is Robert Levitan's fourth start-up. Prior to founding Pando, Robert was the cofounder of iVillage, the largest community Website for women; Flooz.com, an online gift currency and corporate rewards company; and YearLook Enterprises, a publisher of video yearbooks for high schools and colleges.
In between starting companies from scratch and some adventures in world travel, Robert has also been a marketing advisor and executive coach with several companies. Levitan was a strategic marketing advisor for Oddpost, an innovative Web-mail service company acquired by Yahoo. He has helped Pearson LLC launch a television series in China and AT&T Wireless set up its Internet operating division.
Robert serves on the Board of Directors of Mobius Management Systems, a leading provider of software that supports content intensive e-business applications, the Executive Council of New York, a trade association and industry catalyst representing senior executives, and New York Cares, a service organization that coordinates volunteers who work with children, the homeless and the elderly.
Robert also enjoys mountain climbing with his two brothers.
