I have worked closely with Bob during his tenure as director of marketing and communications for La Quinta Resort & Club and PGA WEST. A dedicated marketing professional, Bob has a solid insight into and understanding of the hospitality, golf and real estate industries, and an inherent ability to work well and interact with colleagues. He also has a keen understanding of marketing tactics and initiatives, including public relations, social media, and traditional and digital advertising strategies. Responsive, organized and a true pleasure to work with, Bob would make an excellent addition to any company's sales and marketing team.

I had the privilege having Bob as a client and can say without fear of contradiction that he is one of the best in the world of real estate marketing. He takes the time to thoroughly understand the market and the buyer groups. Then, he is able to align both internal sales teams with outside marketing agencies to create a marketing campaign is truly creative, strategic and most importantly, delivers results. Other bonus items of working with Bob include, a great sense of humor, high-level of integrity, he doesnt panic and, in fact, often adds a sense of calm to the entire team when it is needed most.

Todd Ochsner
Vice President - Roni Hicks & Associates

I had the absolute pleasure of working with Bob during his wonderfully successful tenure as Director of Marketing & Communications at La Quinta Resort and Club and PGA West. He is a born leader with a quiet confidence that resonates with those around him. His presence is a reassuring force that the project or job will be done right. He guides the process with reason and ability. We did some narrated video projects together and his insight and keen eye helped leapfrog our collaboration from very good to great on every occasion. I endorse Bob without hesitation and know he is more than just a valuable asset; he's a difference-maker!
