Meet the Crew

Rob Cavallo – (AKA Robaroo or Roberto) Rob has loved the mountains of Tahoe since he was just a little grom on the Squaw Valley ski team. He attended the University of Nevada at Reno so he could be close to Squaw Valley and his beloved KT-22, eventually settling in Truckee. A self-proclaimed ex ski bum Rob worked as the General Manager of the Sports Exchange for 5 years before purchasing it from the previous owners in 2013. In 2014 he created the Tahoe Sports Hub. These days you are more likely to find him at the shop than on the slopes, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. He is an enthusiastic business owner who truly cares about his employees and the Tahoe-Truckee community. Rob is proud to call the Tahoe Sports Hub home.
