Rob Schutz, who goes by the enviable @Rob handle on Twitter, is a Co-Founder of Ro, an online health services company. Rob has also built a domain brokerage business called Snagged.com. I have never worked on a domain name deal with Rob, but I have seen his name mentioned before and have had conversations with him on Twitter.
On Sunday, Rob received a shoutout from Alexis Ohanian, the serial entrepreneur and Co-Founder of Reddit. Alexis was showing appreciation for Rob related to an undisclosed domain name acquisition:
Shoutout to @Rob Schutz (co-founder of @Ro) who is my go-to for domains (he just helped me with another one) — if you need some help securing one, I can’t recommend a better dude for it: https://t.co/IcVeki2464

In addition to his entrepreneurial pursuits, Alexis operates a venture capital firm called Seven Seven Six. That company has a large portfolio of investments – some of which operate on good domain names and others operate on, well, less than good domain names. I am unsure if the domain name Rob helped Alexis acquire is related to a personal venture or one of his portfolio companies.
This isn’t the first time Alexis has credited Rob for assisting with a domain name acquisition. In July, Alexis mentioned that Rob helped him acquire LAGC.com, which is now used by the Los Angeles Golf Club. Alexis mentioned this in response to someone else’s tweet about a domain name acquisition made with the help of Rob.
I maintain a list of domain brokers, and I have added Snagged.com to the list. I think a recommendation from Alexis is a pretty solid reference.
