Currently, he is focused on increasing annual appeals as well as sharing his expertise and strategic planning in the development of a modified Major Gift plan.  Prior to MSV, he worked as the Senior Manager of the Founders' Council at the Field Museum focusing on renewals and increase support in the $2,500-$5,000 Gift range.

Prior to moving to Chicago, Bob had significant success after being recruited to start the development team and comprehensive capital campaign for GLOW Academy (focusing on education for underserved 6-12 grade girls). He also created and implemented Cape Fear Community College’s first capital campaign for the Humanities & Fine Arts Center. The campaign culminated in a Grand Opening Gala for the Fine Arts Center under his leadership.
