“Rob improved best practice, methodology and growth of our business overall.

With no formal project/account management processes and a large client book, we were working incredibly stressful long hours with low margins. Rob worked with us to create a complete production system, hire PM/AM roles, and align all throughput to new finance/account targets.

With a consistent margin above 35%, we were able to exit to Omnicom.”
