One of Robert’s greatest assets is his versatility. He performs a wide variety of services for the firm and its clients. He learned the value of good accounting from his father, who owned a business and was able to make quick and efficient decisions because he maintained a firm understanding of the financial side of his operations. Robert describes himself as “born to do accounting”—he truly enjoys his work and sees himself doing it forever. A professional in the field since 1986, he credits his career success to lifelong learning, attention to detail, commitment, and hard work.
Raised in Clarksville, Arkansas, Robert currently lives in Fayetteville. One of his favorite things about the area is the unbelievable amount of new business and job growth that has developed there. Robert has been married to his wife, Elaine, for more than three decades. They have two sons, Joseph and Matthew, who are both in college as well as two cats and a dog. Robert’s hobbies include cycling, hiking, reading, and studying history.
