Bob’s career path began in an automotive dealership. After a number of years in automotive he hungered for more and began the process of becoming a Stock Broker. He completed the Canadian Securities Course in late 1981 and became a licensed Stockbroker in Alberta from 1981-1986. Ultimately, he made the decision to go back to his roots in the automotive business.
His next move was to the company Bob would call home for the next 30+ years. He worked in a variety of management roles and ultimately assumed the General Manager position overseeing the entire company and it’s nine divisions. “I’ve always loved a challenge” says Bob “and being able to implement processes and oversee the growth of a company was a great source of satisfaction”. Between 2013 -2016 he was responsible for the construction management of two new buildings totaling 84,000 square feet and a complete renovation of a third building of 29,000 square feet in addition to his regular duties as General Manager.
More recently, Bob oversaw the development and production of an electric vehicle for use in underground mining. This was a massive project using innovative technology converting an existing diesel truck to all-electric allowing the company he managed to compete on the world stage.
Things sometimes go full-circle and Bob recently made the decision to return to the investment industry with Rethink & Diversify thus completing the circle from long ago. He is excited to be a part of this fascinating industry.
