David Kalt is founder and CEO at Reverb.com, the online marketplace for buying, selling, and learning about music gear. Since launching Reverb.com in 2013, David has been working side-by-side with his growing team to make the online marketplace the best place for musicians to buy and sell new, used, and vintage music gear. As the company’s evangelist and product visionary, David has grown Reverb.com into the most popular music gear website in the world.
David started Reverb.com shortly after purchasing well-known musical instrument shop, Chicago Music Exchange, and growing frustrated with the process of buying and selling guitars online. Prior to that, he made a name for himself as co-founder and CEO of online broker optionsXpress, which he took public in 2005 before the company was sold to Charles Schwab, and as founder of ClientBASE, the first CRM solution for travel agents and tour group operators.
David will be sharing his insights on building Reverb.com, optionsXpress and more. Please bring your questions and be ready for a fun, informal and interactive session. Look forward to seeing you there!
