Rob worked for me as a Business Development Director at Galliford Try Investments. I found Rob a very personable individual with an excellent contacts database. He seemed to always get the brief, he gathered and managed the bid teams well and delivered some very valuable multi-million projects to the business. No task seemed too big or too small and every assignment was always carried with Rob’s trademark cheery, positive nature.
