Experiences and passions

Rob has a background in cognitive psychology and is passionate about building and leading global teams.  Rob spent 14 years at Apple, in three different leadership roles. Previous to this experience, he was the Vice President of HR at Expedia and also led international teams in GE and Johnson & Johnson. 

All of this was a bit of a surprise as Rob went to University to become a shark biologist.  He still has a passion for the environment and its diverse ecosystems and lives in the English countryside with his partner and a menagerie of animals.
