Chief Executive Officer
This isn’t Bob’s first rodeo. He started his first agency at the age of 26. Then he helped turn a number of emerging brands into household names. Olive Garden, Barnies Coffee & Tea Co. or Grand Cypress Resort sound familiar? Ya, that was him. If you live in Florida, you also likely have Bob to thank for the fact that your house is made out of concrete block. It was his strategic direction that built the Florida market into the largest single concrete block market in the world. Now that he has conquered the world, Bob decided to return to the work he considers his first love: startups and emerging brands. Bright Rain uses a slightly different business model than a typical agency because, well, Bob does things differently.
