The spokesman

Rob is passionate about using his voice to create a better world for others. Whether he’s communicating our clients’ opportunities with candidates or volunteering in his community by engaging youth to pursue STEM careers, he thrives when he can bring people together for mutual benefit. His energy, positivity, and humor are secret weapons in this effort. Not to mention fuel for many lively, fun conversations around the office. He is a joy to interact with and an enthusiastic advocate for every team he is part of.

As senior associate, Rob engages candidates in meaningful conversations, listening and asking smart questions to understand their motivation and drivers along with skills and experience. He leverages seven years of recruitment and industrial experience to find the best talent for our clients’ executive-level roles. His ability to connect with others has always been a driver of his effectiveness and success.  

Most recently, Rob was a principal consultant for a technology and cyber security-focused search firm, supporting his clients’ talent acquisition strategies. Prior to this role, he spent five years as a recruitment consultant leading cyber security, digital transformation, and engineering searches. He also has experience in B2B business development within the construction sector. 

Rob lives in Brooklyn with his wife, taking advantage of all NYC has to offer, from shows and dinners to parks and museums. As an active member of the community, he volunteers, hosts friends, and participates in several social clubs and organizations. To unwind and re-energize, traveling, reading, music, and hiking are his go-to’s.
