Born and raised in Michigan, Bob entered the US Army after completion of high school in 1968. He served for nearly 30 years. He completed his career serving as Command Sergeant Major, US Army Forces Command, the Army’s largest organization. He had the privilege to hold every level of leadership from an infantry squad leader through Command Sergeant Major, the highest enlisted rank in the US Army, inculcating in him the importance of people and their individual contribution vital to success in any organization. He has led under a myriad of conditions, including leadership in combat.

Bob was part of the very small population of leaders who remained on duty post-Vietnam and helped lead the Army from a conscription-based service to an all-volunteer force, a transition that took 25 years to complete. He served in six of the Army’s 10 Divisions, deployed to 28 countries, and touched the lives of countless people.

For the past eleven years, he has led workshops, created and conducted training, and provided executive coaching. Bob’s specialty is in providing leadership development and professional/personal growth services. He has served on U.S. Congressional and government panels and committees studying training, leadership, and gender integration within the US military.

Bob has coached executive level leaders from a wide range of industry, military, and government organizations. He has facilitated numerous professional growth and leadership development seminars.
