Rob has had an entrepreneurial career which has seen him start, grow and sell his own businesses in both the UK and in Asia in addition to being the Board Member of a number of other private businesses.
Through this experience Rob has first hand knowledge of design, manufacturing and retail sectors built up over a period of 20 years.
As an entrepreneur Rob is able to empathise with business owners in respect of the pains, frustrations, rewards and disappointments that can come with building a business and with the perpetual challenge of balancing growth in profits and revenues with growth in equity value.
