Bob is a native of Beloit, Wisconsin. Bob has been in the automotive business for 40+ years. He began his career with Ford automotive dealerships and soon became a Ford truck manager.
Bob moved to Tennessee in 1997 and continued his automotive career. Over the years, Bob has been successful in various sales areas, including being a sales representative for Explorer Van Company. He joined the Russell Barnett team in 2010, where he created their Ford commercial truck department and obtained their BPN status. He left Russell Barnett for a short while to explore other opportunities in the Ford commercial truck area. He returned to Russell Barnett in 2016 as their Ford commercial truck manager at their Tullahoma location.
In all facets of his sales experience, Bob continues to further his product knowledge. Over the years, he has served as a representative for Ford Motors at various truck shows, including the Mid-America Truck Show and Work Truck Show, as well as being an active participant in various Ford workshops and seminars. He is not afraid to bring up issues or ask questions. Bob is noted for taking care of his customers’ needs and assisting them in building the perfect truck for their needs. Customers also appreciate his accessibility. They know they will always receive knowledgeable answers to their questions, and he is prompt in resolving any issues they may encounter.
During the past few years, people have become accustomed to having services brought to them. Bob envisioned the need to bring eateries to their customers, and he began his quest to develop relationships between food truck builders, Morgan Olson, and Ford. The COVID Pandemic made it even more important to bring the food service to the people. For the past 6 years, Bob’s service has grown from two builders to serving numerous builders and customers from all over the country.
In his spare time, Bob and his wife, Debbie, enjoy traveling with their golden retriever, Tucker.
