President, Managing Member
At night, Rob’s mind races over the possibilities of revolutionizing the employment process. His mantra has always been “work to live” so it’s no surprise that he wound up in the recruiting industry finding people jobs they love. He, like many of us, recognized early on that the recruiting had grown stale, emotionless, and transactional so he vowed to do it differently.
He spent countless hours in the basement of the business school at Ohio University, struggling his way through code as an MIS grad, before realizing he would rather help solve people problems for enterprise business. He spent 10 years helping to grow a $25m employment company into a $500m juggernaut where he reported to the founder of the company. He started a very successful “first of its kind” division that ultimately gave him the courage (and the cajones) to start AP.
In his free time, Rob is eyeing real estate, traveling the world, sipping bourbon, and eating his body weight in sushi.
