Rob joined Livingstone in 2013. Prior to joining the firm, Rob worked in the Business Services group of R.W. Baird’s Chicago office. As Managing Director, Rob heads Livingstone’s Essential Services practice, covering both residential and commercial services. His clients typically offer repeat/recurring services managing skilled technical and/or manual-labor human capital resources across thousands of locations annually.

Since beginning his IB career, Rob has completed over 30 M&A transactions. He has also gained valuable cross-functional experience working deals with Livingstone’s Debt Advisory and Special Situations practices.

Before his career in investment banking, 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. During his time with 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 studies of Civil Engineering (BSE) and Construction Engineering & Management (ME), including cost estimating and project management. Completing his Master of Business Administration (MBA) with emphases in Finance & Accounting facilitated Rob’s career transition into investment banking.
