Bob founded Rich Ideas in the late 1990s, following a career in broadcasting that spanned over three decades and included everything from sweeping floors to owning and managing radio and television stations.
The accomplished veteran discovered a passion for the marketing side of the business, and focused his energies on writing and producing advertising. He created a multitude of radio, TV and print ads for many clients, and as he stated, “some of them were pretty good”.
As Rich Ideas took shape, his two sons, Adam and Ed, became interested in advertising and marketing, they eventually became part of the company. Today, they are the firm’s driving force.
Bob’s title is “Founder and Chief Ideas Officer”. Now semi-retired, he enjoys his thirty thousand foot view, and offers creative contributions from time to time. He takes great pride in watching the company grow and prosper.
