About Rob

I'm interested in supporting ventures contributing to more humanly sustainable systems using technologies such as blockchain (distributed ledgers), AI, VR, quantum computing, nanotechnology, alternative energy, biotechnologies and 3D printing to create a more abundant world for all.

In executive positions in three Deloitte Technology Fast 50TM companies, all of which are going concerns today; as CFO of a recent biotech startup and as an entrepreneur, I've played key roles in the building of resilient businesses. I've also failed. I've been part of high performing teams and led the transformation of fierce and challenging business environments. I use my learnings from these experiences in creating high performing positive cultures with my clients. My direct experience includes: strategic and operational planning, corporate finance (IPO, public and private, cross-border), mergers and acquisitions, partnering, project management, human resources, accounting, and audit. In over 12 years as a CFO of private and public companies, I executed a wide range of financings with various types of investors and lenders, and negotiated deals with world-class companies. As a steward of the finance function, and a partner to CEOs, I've provided strategic and operational guidance in the areas of: therapeutic drug development; medical devices, functional food and beverages, multi-sided platforms, international cannabis cultivation; clean energy storage; clean waste processing; computer gaming; toys; environmental building supplies; mobile communications platform and environmentally friendly commercial cleaning solutions.

I received a Bachelor of Commerce degree in finance from the University of British Columbia, a Chartered Professional Accountant designation and am professionally trained in project management, Lean Six Sigma, HeartMath® Building Personal Resilience, the Hoffman Quadrinity (resilience) Process® and the Oliver Wight Integrated Business Planning (IBP) process.

Eye of the "I" philosopher, life hacker and health enthusiast. I appreciate those I get to work and create with; relish learning, evolving and helping others to do so; spending time daily in nature, meditating; working out...mostly I enjoy seeing what happens next.
