Bob will create order out of chaos for you. He will turn a bunch of strangers into a team. He will take a spark of creativity and turn it into something real. He will turn loss into profit but show no reluctance in exiting a bad idea. He will establish an ethic of determination and common cause. He will engage naturally with the janitor, the CEO, the investors, with royalty – and has done.

Bob will run until tackled, get up again and run.

Bob as a Mentor

“When I first got Bob´s CV I was blown away by his relevant experience and qualified background. Working with us he has proven to be a very strategic oriented person with a particular focus on customer success. He helped us built an instrument to thoroughly analyse our financials which enabled us to continuously understand if there was a perfect match between our strategy and our operations landscape. Thank you!”

Bob as a M&A

“Bob was a key executive in successful divestitures / separations that we supported. A strategic thinker, yet soundly in the detail and with a very positive and transparent attitude to risks and issues that inspired confidence from both his colleagues and acquirers. Put simply, Bob was very action oriented, operationally minded and drove the people and activities required to make the transactions a success against very challenging timelines. A very honest and personable character that I would recommend into the most challenging COO or Exec Change role, or for M&A integration/separation leadership roles.”

Partner

Deloitte



I’ve worked with Bob many times over the years and he’s been absolutely fantastic. He’s detailed and organised but also very strategic and decisive in the way he operates. Without a doubt, an absolute gem and an asset to have on any team.
