How I Got Here: Ron Rosenbaum

Ron Rosenbaum, the Sports and Fitness Industry Association's senior vice president of marketing and business development, got his start as a paperboy.

Ron Rosenbaum started his career delivering newspapers for The Daily Press/Times Herald in Newport News, Virginia. He says a summer spent doing manual labor in three-digit temperatures on the aircraft carrier USS George Washington taught him the importance of getting a good education to find a career that was fulfilling—something that he’s confident he’s done. A few highlights from his career path follow:

“If you really want a rewarding career, it’s important to identify where you have talents and then match that to a career focused on subject matter that you enjoy.”
