Bob brings a wealth of energy and professionalism to every endeavor he touches. Bob has the ability to assess business challenges from a knowledgable and creative perspective, which allows him to find timely and unique solutions for hard problems. But his biggest strength is in his methodical, persistent pursuit of success - both for his clients and his business. Bob is that rare combination of technical know-how, with great business instincts and insights. I strongly recommend Bob's work and hope I get the chance to work with him again soon.
I knew of Bob when we were both at PRTM. He had a great reputation there and when we needed assistance at D2M, I was pleased to learn that he had opened his own firm in Shenzen. He helped us on a variety of projects at D2M was developed quite a reputation for being fast, creative and diligent. His communications are always crystal clear. Bob is a true pleasure to work with.
I had the distinct pleasure of working alongside Bob during our first year of 'boot camp' at Darden. It was one of the toughest times of our lives, and yet Bob maintained a positive attitude and impressed all around with his sharp insights into human nature. Bob, with his genuine down-to-earth style, is a natural leader.
