Who We Are 

Robert Celic- Executive Director

Coming from a family of educators, Rob started Hexagramm Books with a teacher's perspective in mind.  Like many businesses, Hexagramm Books started small, with one French immersion client, and eventually grew into a one-stop-shop for more than 350 dual language programs across the country.

Rob studied Finance, Spanish and History at Indiana University, and in addition to his native English, he is proficient in Spanish and French.
