Bob Vincent is President of Reel Heroes Media in Dallas, Texas, and serves as the Communications Director for the Airpower Foundation. Bob founded the company in 2008 with a revolutionary online marketing product called VideoPilot360. Bob’s talents are rooted in his unique ability to create valuable relationships and produce high-quality productions. That skill has made him a trusted resource by some of the largest brands and entertainers across the United States, including Rascal Flatts, Gary Sinise, Tony Orlando, Lee Greenwood, Chef Robert Irvine, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Terry Fator, with accolades from corporate giants like Disney, American Airlines, DEKA Research & Development Corporation, MGM Resorts International, and Sears.
Bob is most proud of his philanthropy work. His compelling and sensitive video productions for the Airpower Foundation, Sky Ball, American Airlines Veterans Initiatives, Snowball Express, The American Fallen Soldiers Project, The Gary Sinise Foundation, and many other organizations, have earned him praise from military family members who benefit from those philanthropies. His videos are credited for helping motivate patriotic Americans to donate millions of dollars in donations to those organizations and inspiring others to volunteer their time to help. One particular video produced by Bob was recently responsible for assisting the Independence Corps Foundation, along with inventor, and DEKA Corp. CEO, Dean Kamen, to resume production of the iBOT mobility device, making the next generation of this amazing technology available to those who need it most. Bob and his company were also proudly featured in U.S. Veterans magazine.
Bob is also very proud of his Hungarian heritage as his father was a war refugee escaping Hungary in 1956 during the Hungarian Revolution attempting to end communism, regain independence and end the Russian occupation of the country. Bob’s grandmother was a survivor of the Holocaust, and his grandfather passed in a Russian prison camp in Siberia in 1945. His father was given asylum by the United States when the Russian army came to put him in prison because of his father’s resistance against the communists. He escaped by crossing the border into Austria, and upon arriving in the United States he proudly enlisted in the U.S. Army serving the country that saved his life. He was able to return to Hungary and marry Bob’s mother to bring her to the U.S. as well. Bob was born in the United States, but spent summers growing up visiting family in Hungary and speaks fluent Hungarian. While Hungary was still under communist control by the Russians, Bob grew up realizing how fortunate he was to live in America experiencing firsthand what is was like to live in a communist country. That appreciation for the freedoms we have led to his involvement with the organizations he supports to provide assistance to the brave men and women who provide the freedoms his family in Hungary didn’t have.
