Testimonials

Rob prides himself on providing advice that creates results that stand the test of time - long after he leaves the engagement. But don’t just take his word for it – take it from some of the clients he's worked with.
“Rob was a tremendous help to our leadership team. He was able to quickly identify some of our underlying challenges, and he helped us fill those gaps with some practical management tools. We saw immediate results, and those improvements have stuck with us to this day.”
— Charlie Westling. CEO, Computype —
“Rob had a tremendous impact on helping us turn around one of our factories in just four months. On-time delivery improved, output increased, and our processes were stabilized. That also helped to boost employee morale and engagement.  Bringing in Rob was one of the best decisions that we made this year."
— Dave Huml, Senior VP EMEA, APAC, Marketing & Operations —
"Rob's in-depth knowledge of operations and approach to profitability management has helped my company improve our results. He merges his practical operational expertise with a great understanding of effective leadership. This is a powerful combination to help any company to excel."
— Joan Schatz, Co-President, Park Industries —
“I was the father figure in a family owned and operated printing business that had evolved into a seventy person, $10 million business when we met Rob. To that point our frequently held family meetings were attended by some or all six family members involved in the business. We always had plenty to discuss, but with very little structure.
Rob helped us to separate the major issues; we called them “big rocks”, from the smaller rocks or pebbles. We learned to delegate responsibilities to either take action on, or research these larger issues and report at our next ”Rock” meeting. Rob did a lot more than this to establish and perfect our decision making processes; but we would always associate the “rock” meetings, which we still hold years later, with the improvements in our systems he helped us to make. These changes were mostly just good common sense, but it took someone to lead the way. Rob was a very good facilitator.”
