Practical Strategies From Experienced Advisors
Who Have “Been There And Done That”
Rob’s your guy if you have a family in conflict and you want to save the business
He can quickly get to the root cause of disruption in a family owned business. He brings focus to what should be driving decision making – often with his very first question: do you want to be a business first family or a family first business?
Rob is even-keeled when things get tough, or a situation is difficult. He always has the client’s best interests at heart, and he offers a calm and comforting presence. This work is personal to Rob, you’re not just a transaction, the relationship matters to him.

SOLUTIONS FOR THE TOUGHEST CHALLENGES CEOS AND FAMILY BUSINESS OWNERS FACE
Since we started working together, profit has doubled each year
We use the systems and tools he taught us EVERY day. We measure everything. We use our mission and vision to obtain alignment throughout the organization.
Since we started working together, profit has doubled each year (and tripled in one particular year) – partially due to Rob’s impact.
What I appreciate most about Rob is his honesty and his unbiased perspective. It’s incredibly valuable to have an experienced business executive to help with day-to-day decision making. Rob points out things I don’t see and asks questions to help me focus.

Rob helped our company make a tremendous turnaround
I especially valued having someone to talk to who understood my industry. Rob was helpful for bouncing ideas and asking me questions to make me think instead of just giving me the answers.
Rob is gifted in communication skills, relationships, and business – and he’s not just “book smart” – he has experience running a $200 million company with 1,000s of employees.
Without Rob to help us overcome our weaknesses, the value of our 50-year-old company would have suffered.
Rob helped our company make a tremendous turnaround. Including changing us to a board run company, with outside members.
