Former President and Founder of ShowTek Events, a technical production and entertainment company serving the events industry, where Rob’s business mission was to be one of the best and brightest “without the attitude.” With expertise in managing teams and providing world class customer service, Rob is an intuitive leader who collaborates with marketing, creative/design, and the necessary stakeholders to produce results on budget. All the while winning a few industry awards along the way.
A serial event professional, Rob sharpened his business skills in college at the height of the 80’s party movement as a Disc Jockey, thus beginning his love affair with the event industry. Hands on experience started from the first paying gig of $50 to producing events and conferences with such notables as; President George W. Bush, President Jimmy Carter, Garth Brooks, Zac Brown Band, and the list goes on. Rob’s career path has also taken him to the platform as a speaker, presenting on such vital topics as; customer service, sales success and leadership.
An Event black belt – literally and figuratively – having trained with former Olympians, Rob has a keen sense of what it takes to operate on an Olympic level. Lastly, with budgeting in mind, Rob has a strong sense of where to trim the fat and when to embellish, all in an effort to achieve award winning results.
Here’s what a Corporate SVP had to say;
"Rob has the rare ability to connect with all levels in an organization from the C-Suite to the mailroom. I've known Rob for over 15 years and value his ability to quickly establish and maintain trust and strong relationships. His style leans towards Servant Leadership in that he puts the needs of others first and helps those around him develop and unlock their potential, which results in more engaged teammates."
Rob is also dedicated to furthering the professional development of his colleagues in the industry. He is the Co-founder and Past President of the Denver Chapter of the International Live Events Society, a current member of the Project Management Institute and was an advisory board member for the Zoology Foundation.
Currently residing in a small ranching town outside of Denver, Colorado, with his wife of 32 years, Rob enjoys; competing in cowboy mounted shooting with his horse Gaucho, shopping with his daughter and talking about cars with his son.

As a meeting planner that produces high end events for corporate clients around the country, it would be difficult to describe the remarkable service that he provides. We have been working together over a decade and no matter who the client might be, I put my complete confidence in Rob. He has many strengths, but one that stands out for me is how much my C-level clientele rely on him and how they respect and admire his dedication to their program. He has an extraordinary talent to make that happen time after time. I consider him the best in the business, one of my most trusted colleagues and a friend. There isn't a more brilliant person in the industry. I am honored to work with him.
I have worked for Rob for over 25 years. Over time I came to learn about Rob's strengths and admire his breadth of skills and abilities. The obvious trait that you first notice about Rob is his entrepreneurial spirit and fire. That is what motivates him. However, what makes him successful is his leadership abilities and his finely honed business acumen. Rob excels at Business Development, Marketing, Sales and above all else his focus on his customers & clients. Rob values every relationship and pays extreme attention to detail to ensure that the customer worries for nothing and is extremely happy about everything. His long-standing relationships are a testament to how much people trust Rob with their business, events, friends and family and is evident by the repeat business they continue to send directly to Rob. I have the utmost respect for what Rob does and more importantly, how he does it. Highly recommend him to anyone in any capacity. He never fails to impress and WOW those he interacts with.
I would like to take a moment to say THANK YOU for your amazing work ethic, your talents in the industry and your professionalism. You and I both know what it takes to produce an event of the scale that we did this weekend. There are so many moving parts that have to be attended to, in order for things to go off seamlessly. Thank you for your continued excellence in providing top-notch service in event sound, lighting and production.
