Rob is a Managing Director and heads Livingstone’s efforts in the Essential Services sector, a practice that covers a range of commercial, industrial, and residential services.  Joining Livingstone in 2013, his clients typically offer repeat / recurring installation, repair, and / or maintenance services; manage skilled, technical, or manual-labor human capital resources; and provide on-site/remote/in-field, route-based services.

Since beginning his investment banking career in 2011, Rob has completed over 35 M&A transactions, while also gaining valuable cross-functional experience advising on deals within Livingstone’s Debt Advisory and Special Situations practices.

Earlier in his career, Rob spent four years with Walbridge, a Detroit-based private general contractor and design-builder, where he focused on industrial, commercial, and heavy-civil projects.  At Walbridge, Rob was a member of the firm’s leadership development program and was promoted into roles of increasing responsibility, including project engineer, estimator, scheduler, and manager. His experience with Walbridge provides him with valuable insight into the day-to-day activities of his Essential Services clients. Rob’s pre-Walbridge educational background at the University of Michigan comprised Civil Engineering (BSE) and Construction Engineering & Management (ME) studies, including cost estimating and project management. Completing his Master of Business Administration (MBA) with an emphasis in Finance & Accounting facilitated Rob’s career transition into investment banking.

Robert resides in the Western suburbs of Chicago with his wife and children. He is originally from Ann Arbor, MI.
