Bob was blessed with a unique 28-year corporate career that touched many aspects of business leadership. This included working for Ford Motor Company where only God could have orchestrated the 16-year path that took him from Database Programmer to Engineering Manager for the Taurus/Sable Product Line. Bob made the difficult decision to leave Ford Motor Company, joining NACCO Materials Handling Group where he spent the next six years as Director of Global Product Development Processes, Systems and Operations, and then as the Director of the Americas Warehouse Products Development Center. Prior to joining C12, Bob served as Vice President of Quality, Engineering and Continuous Improvement for TWG, a Dover Company.
Bob is thrilled with the opportunity to bring his passions together as a C12 Chair for metro Jacksonville and northeast Florida, with St. Augustine as his newest group!
He has always had a passion for leadership and serving his Lord which has given him many opportunities to serve in church leadership capacities (e.g., Deacon, Teacher, Youth Leader, Small Group Leader). Bob also has a passion for workplace leadership, teaching, coaching and mentoring, having developed and delivered many training classes in Project Management, Change Management and Lean implementation.
Bob and his wife, Sandy, live in Jacksonville, Florida with their two youngest sons Jack and Harrison. Bob enjoys time with his family, outdoor activities, tennis, golf, running and walking their Black Lab, Vader, as in Darth.
