You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

In executive and management positions from Fortune 500 to Deloitte Technology Fast 50TM companies and as an entrepreneur I have built things and also failed at building things. I have been part of high performing teams and led the transformation of fierce and challenging business environments. I now use my learnings from these experiences in creating high performing positive cultures with my clients. My direct experience includes: strategic planning, operational planning, corporate finance (public and private, Canada and U.S.), mergers and acquisitions, partnering, project management, sales and marketing, human resources, manufacturing, supply chain, accounting, and audit. In my 10 years as a CFO of private and public companies, I was a true steward of the finance function and executed a wide range of financings in different markets with various classes of investors and lenders. I've also negotiated agreements with world class companies in a variety of industries. As a partner to CEOs, I provided strategic and operational guidance in the areas of: clean energy storage, vertical farming systems, low emissions waste incineration, toys, computer gaming, environmental building supplies, mining, medical diagnostics, mobile communications platforms, functional food and environmentally friendly commercial cleaning solutions.

I am grateful to have been mentored in best-of-breed practices in many functional areas by leaders in their fields. Now after more than 20 years mastering the rules of business I'm enjoying breaking them. In combining my traditional business training with outside-the-box disruptive thinking, models and technologies I bring my best to create exceptional results for people, businesses and stakeholders.

How I like to work with people
As an Advisor

Across all functions of business with a foundation in corporate finance, I've developed a rare set of skills and knowledge that allows me to help CEOs achieve extraordinarily better and faster results than they otherwise could. On a project basis or as ongoing strategic partners growing or selling your business, my background and methods allow me to provide you with more flexibility, stability and leverage than consultants. Importantly, I can be more versatile and useful as your thinking partner and advisor helping you consider new views, filter, organize, make the best decisions and execute creating real value for you, your business and all its stakeholders. I work best with CEOs where we naturally combine intuition with discipline and effective communication. My compensation is flexible depending on the needs and the qualities of the project.

Chris Dollard
We worked together  •  Managing Director, Envision Partners.
In addition to his formidable skills and knowledge around corporate strategy, finance and operations, Rob brings a significant amount of emp ... athy to his client engagements. He continually "checks in" with his clients on both practical matters of the day and emotional well being. I can't say many business advisors take it to the degree that Rob does - in fact I've never met anyone who brings "been there, done that, and I get it" like he does. Rob has combined his years of experience with penetrating insights into the "human" side of the equation, providing a fully-rounded service to his clients. After a conversation with Rob - despite the personal/business issues you may be having at the moment - you can't help but feel better.
Livleen Veslemes
We worked together  •  Chief Operating Officer & Chief Financial Officer, bioLytical Laboratories.
Rob has experience in both well established and startup environments. He knows what good looks like and can advise you on how to get there.
Bill Radvak
We worked together  •  President & CEO, American Vanadium Corp.. The University of British Columbia grad.
Rob is a work horse and dogged at due diligence - really havent seen anything like it. Extremely thorough and detailed. While extremely comp ... etent at finance, financial reporting etc, I engaged him twice for his strategic and operational insight, work ethic and ability to build relationships including with the target management team. VERY highly recommend him if you are looking for someone to be a team member for an M&A transaction.

Rob has extensive experience in a number of industries and a variety of company sizes. He is both highly detailed and top level strategic w ... hich is a rare talent. He can dig into technology, sales, marketing, finance and communications and add high value in a short period of time. He is enthusiastic and dynamic.
