A true “accidental trainer,” Rob came into the learning and development after a decade working in the television broadcast industry, having worked at independent and network television stations. Through this rich experience, Rob has spent over 17 years in the learning and development industry specializing in leadership development and technical training. In addition to becoming one of the first people to attain the Associate Professional of Talent Development in 2017, Rob also took part in 2020's Certified Professional of Talent Development pilot as well. In addition, Rob has a Certificate in Instructional Design and Delivery from American Military University, and is about to complete his Bachelors of Education Studies from the University of Arizona.
When he is not working with developing talent, he volunteers with developing the youth of his community having spent the last 42 years affiliated with the Boy Scouts of America. Having earned the Eagle Scout award in 1987, Rob stayed with the organization after becoming an adult and for the last 11 years has served with the BSA’s Venturing program which teaches valuable life skills to the young men and women who will be the leaders of tomorrow. Rob’s Scouting recognitions include the Venturing Leadership Award, the District Award of Merit, and the International Scouters Award. In 2016 Rob was awarded the President's Call To Service Award from President Barack Obama in honor of his lifetime of volunteer service. Despite this, what Rob will tell you he’s the most proud of is his son Eugene, who earned his Eagle Scout in 2013, and is currently working on a degree in Education himself.
