Rowan Samuel - Realtor ®
Rowan Samuel has lived many lives. Originally from Zimbabwe (Rhodesia), he and his family immigrated to the U.S. in 1980 to escape the brutal Mugabe regime - they lost everything when they came to America. The family lived in the Philadelphia area where he was raised and schooled and before moving to sunny Naples. A graduate of Pennsylvania State University with Bachelors Degree in Advertising, Rowan's first foray into business was in the advertising world, where he spent 18 years honing his skills in sales and marketing on behalf of such high profile clients as General Motors, Ford Motor Company, Chrysler, Toyota, Burger King, Chevy Chase Bank, Comcast, the Dallas Cowboys, McDonalds and specializing in both direct response and digital marketing. Boring is not in his vocabulary - his entrepreneurial spirit led him to founding and launching multiple ventures including a graphic design and branding company, a wine bar & art gallery, an oil investment company, several online banner ad networks as well as the Naples International Film Festival, the thriving Naples based film festival. Now, he has his dream job of selling real estate in PARADISE. A lover of everything cultural, Rowan is a part-time musician, film buff and a staunch supporter of the arts who currently serves on the Park Shore Board of Directors.
