Like many in the industry Rob started in the restaurant business at a very young age washing dishes at a family owned Italian restaurant in his neighbourhood when he was 13. He quickly developed a passion for the business and decided to make it his career. Rob attended Michigan State University (Go State!) where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Hospitality Management.
Throughout Rob's management career he has been fortunate enough to work for some top level companies in the industry such as, Houston's, Champps, Hard Rock Cafe, and PF Chang's / Pei Wei, in various levels of management. Rob made the transition over to the recruiting side of the business with Gecko Hospitality in September 2005; after bouncing around the country with the various restaurant companies, he has ended up in Murrieta, CA.
Rob has the Southern California territory for Gecko Hospitality which includes Los Angeles County, Ventura County, Orange County, the Inland Empire, and San Diego County.
When not working, Rob likes to spend as much time as possible being outside enjoying the lifestyle that Southern California offers, as well as spending time with his 3 daughters. Rob is also a huge Michigan State and Detroit sports fan.
