Robert Netzly

CEO

As the founder and CEO of Inspire, Robert has been here since the beginning and is responsible for the leadership of the firm, and most importantly, keeping the firm fanatically focused on our mission to inspire transformation for God’s glory throughout the world by building low cost, biblically aligned investments that create meaningful change in the lives of people across the globe.

Completely by God’s grace, somehow, Robert has become a globally recognized authority on the biblically responsible investing (BRI) movement, is frequently cited in major financial media outlets such as The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Fox Business and Financial Times, and is a trend-setting thought leader regarding best practices for design and implementation of biblical investment strategies for institutions, professional money management and retail investors.

Robert founded the Inspire Investing group of companies in 2011, and previously worked in the Wells Fargo Investments Private Client division in Carmel, CA from 2008 to 2011.

In 2003, Robert married his first (and only!) girlfriend, Lisa, and they are raising their three energetic boys and one beautiful princess in Hollister, CA. Lisa homeschools all four of their children and together Robert and Lisa enjoy supporting their vibrant local homeschool community. Robert and his family worship and serve at Grace Bible Church of Hollister, where they have served as Sunday school teachers, led the college ministry, worship music ministry and yes, financial stewardship ministry (but not all at once).

Least importantly, Robert holds a B.S. degree from New York University’s Excelsior College in Liberal Studies.

Aaron serves as Inspire’s Chief Operating Officer and Chief Compliance Officer, ensuring that all the firm’s activities are aligned, organized, efficient and compliant. Aspiring to use business as ministry, Aaron joined the management team at Inspire in 2015 as operations were beginning to form. Having a background in financial advising and an MBA from Biola University, Aaron is passionate about using his training and education to inspire change in the world through the way people invest their money.

Aaron is married to his beautiful wife, Sandra, and has two adorable daughters. He rides his bike to work, drinks French-pressed coffee in the morning, and scuba dives on the weekends. He attends Grace Bible Church in Hollister where he and his wife host their weekly small group.
