Robert (Bob) graduated from Concordia with a Bachelor of Commerce in 1979 and obtained his C.A. designation in 1981. Bob articled with Coopers & Lybrand in Montreal and in 1983 moved to Vancouver where he worked in the Insolvency Department of Coopers & Lybrand. In late 1985, Bob was recruited to Kraft Canada and returned to Montreal where he was first the Manager of Capital Investment Analysis, then Assistant Controller and ultimately, Treasurer.

Bob attended the Columbia University International Business Program while at Kraft. In 1988 Bob was again recruited, this time to Halifax, to act as C.F.O. of a food wholesaler/retailer that was in financial difficulty. This began a career that saw Bob and his family move to Toronto (Oshawa Foods) and Calgary (The Forzani Group), both turnarounds. At The Forzani Group, Bob joined as the C.F.O. in 1997 and in early 2000 became President before ultimately becoming C.E.O. in 2004. In late summer 2011 The Forzani Group was sold to Canadian Tire. In early 2012, after a brief flirtation with retirement, Bob joined Big Rock Brewery in Calgary as president and C.E.O.

Bob spends his spare time at his vineyard in the Okanagan. Indulges his passion for outdoor sports such as climbing and scrambling, cycling and in the winter Alpine and cross-country skiing. Bob and his spouse Andrea spend time with their three adult children and five grandchildren regularly as well.
