About Me
Originally from Fort Wayne, Indiana, Bob Gugel is a retired educator who has spent the majority of retirement as a tutor, personal coach, and substitute teacher in Newport Beach, California. In addition to being an academic leader, he also coached football, baseball, track, volleyball, and basketball, with several of his players graduating to professional athletic careers. He later earned his master's degree in history at Pepperdine University.

Since moving to Panama, he has focused his attention on assisting his wife Terry in building up their business in real estate in Panama. His 40 plus years of experience as a teacher, coach, and principal have been invaluable in helping to develop the business. Financial administration, organization, attention to detail, social and language skills, all learned and developed in a successful educational career, have been very applicable to the business world.

Bob now enjoys serving as a coach for the Gorillaz in the Panama Flag League. The PFL is a popular adult flag football league in Panama City. The goal of the team is to win the Coors Light Cup, the “Lombardi Trophy” of Panama.
