Having achieved global success in the music world and the franchise world, Bob turned his sights on helping individuals find the success that they deserve. Bob draws his inspiration, commitment, and his relationship-building experience from his previous career as a World-Class Drummer. Having played with Edgar Winter, Hall & Oates, Rick Derringer, as well as being the featured drummer with Dick Clark’s ‘Caravan of Stars’. In his “first career” he travelled the world backing such artists as Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Chubby Checker, Bo Diddley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ricky Nelson, and Jackie Wilson among many more.
His love for business and his vast network of friends led to the natural extension of the franchise world. His real world experience as the Sr. Vice President of Franchise Development for Dale Carnegie Training, Dynamark Security, Marilyn Monroe Spas, and U2’s Q-Zar Entertainment; where he negotiated the exclusive rights as game supplier to the 1996 Olympics. Bob has personally negotiated sales of over 3,000 Unit, Area Developer and Master Franchises in over 80 countries. He has extensive experience in new business start-up, including strategic planning, capitalization, facilities, licensing agreements, operations management, and staff/team building.
While his professional resume is unique, he counts his biggest successes as the many philanthropic endeavors that he has supported over the years. He is an ardent champion for children’s causes and as the Executive Vice President of Kids Beating Cancer, his mission is to link his many friends around the world to provide resources for children in need.
Bob looks forward to helping you with his vast network of connections and pragmatic business experience. He regularly speaks on the topic of franchising and has helped thousands of individuals achieve success in business.
