This attitude translates to all of his relationships at Column B. Having built two of his own businesses – one being an online school, the other a bricks and mortar school which he sold in the spring of 2014 – Rob understands the dedication, personal involvement, and strategy required to grow a successful business.
Here, he began his connection with business sales, recognizing the emotions behind the sale, the process of the sale, and the importance of maximizing the value of a business for a profitable sale.
In addition, Rob brings a unique passion for business development to the Column B team. Having developed organizations around the world – a successful rugby organization in Korea for instance – he understands how successful businesses are structured, along with how to restructure a business to increase its value not just in the short term, but for the long haul as well.
He gets excited about helping business owners increase their “sellability” through strategy and development, along with demonstrating the measurable ROI when strategies are implemented.
It’s his enthusiasm to which people connect with Rob most. An uncanny ability to lead, motivate, and inspire, Rob is able to create, build, and successfully implement a vision of success for businesses he works with.
This same strategy and vision translate to Rob outside of Column B. He is continually investing in himself to further his education, skills, and experience in the growing field of business brokering.
However, it’s not all about business for Rob. Remember, he is committed to having fun! As an avid rugby player, Rob spends large part of his time playing with the Calgary Rugby Union, Division 2 for Cochrane. When winter arrives, he will once again be found on a mountainside!
