Born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico, Roberto has spent more than 10 years in the US, working in the multicultural marketing field with brands such as ESPN Deportes, M&M’s, Snickers, Twix, Budweiser and Bud Light.

Roberto has a B.A. from the University of Notre Dame and a MBA from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He is the recipient of the 2015 Emerging Business of the Year award by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan St Louis, as well as a grant recipient by the Arch Grants Startup Global Competition.

Roberto Garcia is the founder of LISTO. LISTO was first conceived at a Texas movie theater, where Roberto was settling in to watch “Iron Man” on the big screen. Seated in front of him were a father and son who both looked really excited to be at the theater. As the movie started, the boy began to translate the movie for his father –line by line. It became apparent that while the boy was bilingual, his father only spoke Spanish. Eventually – and to Roberto’s dismay – both the father and son were asked to leave, due to complaints from other patrons. Having experienced difficulties watching movies in English himself, Roberto began to explore potential solutions. LISTO is that solution. It provides the simultaneous translation of a movie soundtrack while remaining elegant and non-disruptive for all other patrons.

Roberto has experience driving multi-million dollar brands and launching new products and is passionate about marketing and purposeful communications for brands and organizations.
