As the son of an Air Force pilot, Bob grew up with a strong respect for military service members and their families. Seeing the parallels between the qualities needed in strong, brave and caring military leaders and those needed in the leaders at the helm of our countries’ healthcare organizations, Bob along with his good friend and mentor, LTG (ret) Rick Lynch, developed the Adapt or Die and Zensight’s Leadership Summit meetings. These meetings, held biannually for the past decade, focus on developing adaptable leaders with strong moral compasses via collaborations and discussions between military and pharma leaders. They have hosted and connected over 1,200 leaders.
Bob holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing and management from the University of Portland. Bob and his wife, Kasie, have three children and reside in Scottsdale, Arizona, where they enjoy long walks, getting beat by their kids in tennis, deciphering the mysterious inner workings of their cat, Noir, and spending time outdoors.
