CEO of Chief Executives Guild | Convener of Chief Executives of medium and large corporations
Robert’s passion is working with chief executives, both collectively and individually—serving as a connector, convener, facilitator, confidant and referral resource — bringing top business leaders together to increase the results of their leadership and achieve the life and legacy they desire.
Robert has been bringing chief executives together since 1994, creating gatherings and communities—local and global—where presidents and CEOs find a source of regeneration, clarity and leadership mastery through candid dialogue with their peers and with nationally acclaimed visionary thinkers and best-selling business leadership authors.
Prior to launching the Chief Executives Guild in Pacific Northwest, Robert founded the Chief Executives Club in southern New England in 2006, where he moderated monthly CEO events and facilitated confidential CEO round-table discussions. Robert also founded and led E-Club RI, with monthly events for entrepreneurial leaders of small businesses.
In 2012, after the acquisition of the Chief Executives Club by Rhode Island College, and the sale of E-Club RI, Robert accepted a leadership role within one of the world's largest CEO membership organizations advising and assisting in the launch of new CEO peer advisory boards.
Robert has also been the CEO of an enterprise solutions software company and served as a marketing executive in a Fortune 100 company, where he created and directed World Business Leader Forums and other C-level events around the globe, which brought the top executives of multi-billion-dollar corporations together to share ideas, gain insights about key issues and discuss global business challenges.
Robert also serves as the Chief Lion Herder at Herding Lions, Inc. — a consultancy that specializes in member acquisition and retention — helping membership organizations grow.
