Bobby Zahabi is founder and President of Messengers & Distribution, Inc. (MDI). Bobby arrived in the U.S. in 1977 to pursue a degree from USC in Aerospace Engineering. While attending USC, he accepted a job as a driver for a messenger service and worked day and night, on call 24 hours a day for three years. Within a few years, he bought 15% of the company. In 1985, Bobby launched MDI based on a personal philosophy: “In order for a company to succeed, I believe, it needs to benefit more than just one person. Any business venture that offers a good value to its clients’ has a good chance to make it in any economy. However that is only half of the equation; the other half is the people doing the work. They too need to benefit from the establishment, to ensure complete success.” Decades later, MDI is a preferred provider of distribution and delivery services for the entertainment industry and others. When not managing and growing MDI, Bobby enjoys surfing at Newport Beach and spending time with his children.
