Bob started work at the age of 19 as a sales negotiator with a small independent estate agent in Milton Keynes called Taylors. He stayed with Taylors until he was 32. By that time the business was owned by Hambro Countrywide, it traded from a network of 70 branches and he was Deputy Managing Director.
At 32, Bob then moved to Birmingham to take the role of Managing Director of Dixons, another Hambro Countrywide owned business. At the age of 40 he became a Divisional Director of Countrywide plc and oversaw the Western third of the National network and then went on to be appointed to the position of Managing Director of Countrywide Estate Agents & Financial Services age 49. In this role he over saw the National network of 850 branches. After 7 years in this position Countrywide decided that the best person to run the Estate Agency Division was someone that didn't know anything about Estate Agency, so Bob left.
Since 2016 he has owned and been Managing Director of Callwell who help estate agents do the most important thing that they do - making first impressions count. In the same year, Bob co-founded Noa Recruitment who help Tech Employers find talent of a quality that they can't find themselves.
Bob is also a Non Executive Director of Farrell Heyworth; an eighteen branch Estate Agency network in the North West of England.
Away from work, Bob enjoys football, beer, rugby, church, boating, cricket, beer, walking, motor racing, wine, grandchildren, ooh and beer.
