RHR International’s Executive Bench services provide companies with a comprehensive solution for building a strong pipeline of enterprise leaders with its two core components: a Readiness for Scale℠ assessment, which pinpoints strengths to leverage and gaps to close in preparation for executive leadership; and a Scaling for Growth℠ program, a best-in-class executive development program that closes gaps in scalability and accelerates readiness for enterprise leadership.

Much of Robert’s account leadership has focused on working with senior and HR leadership in complex, integrated organizations. He has served clients across several industries, including insurance, fintech, retail, and manufacturing. He has also published multiple white papers on diversity and inclusion and the insurance industry.
