TOBE’s Bio

Tobe Brockner is the owner and founder of Katuva, a virtual assistant placement agency. Tobe has been a business owner his entire career because, as his wife of 25 years says, "He is functionally unemployable." Tobe's passion for entrepreneurship and helping business owners live better, more fulfilling lives is always on full display. Helping business owners find, train, and manage virtual assistants has been his main focus over the last 7+ years and his greatest joy is in helping other small business owners like himself free themselves from the businesses that they own and live a life of freedom and autonomy.

He lives in Meridian, Idaho with his wife Kirsten and two kids, Beau and Scarlett. In his newfound free time he enjoys fine cigars, aged bourbon, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and the Idaho outdoors.
