Before founding School Bus Logistics (SBL), Rob worked for National Express Corporation, which supports Durham School Services in the U.S. and Stock Transportation in Canada. While there he quickly moved up from coordinator to director of route logistics. His past routing experience also includes serving first as a training and implementation specialist and then as a regional account manager for Versatrans Solutions, Inc., the leading provider of transportation routing and planning software and services in the K–12 industry.
While building the reputation of SBL, Rob spent two years as director of the fourth largest school bus contractor in North America, North America Central School Bus, where he oversaw the successful startup of 12 new school districts in the 2011–2012 school year, eliminated more than 947 daily deadhead route miles from the company’s bus lots, reduced more than 40 time and labor hours per week for route packages, and performed a boundary study analysis for a school district in Illinois.
Rob graduated with a B.A. in geography from State University of New York at Plattsburgh in 1997; he earned minors in planning and in computer mapping. In 2009, he completed a 15-week MBA primer course at DePaul University in Chicago.
