He is a member of the College of Business Administration and Graduate School of Management's Dean's Council of Excellence and the Accounting Advisory Board, has served as faculty relationship partner between PricewaterhouseCoopers and Marquette, and has taught a tax class at the university. He also has been a guest speaker in many accounting classes; at Beta Alpha Psi, the accounting honors organization; and at the college's Lead Program events.
“Through my interaction with Marquette and its tremendous students, faculty, administration and alumni, I’ve been so blessed,” he says. “The future of the business world is in great hands with students like those who attend Marquette.”
Bob is also PricewaterhouseCoopers' U.S. National Fixed Assets Solutions tax partner and lead tax partner for the Tax Projects Delivery Group in Milwaukee, Chicago and Minneapolis, which focuses on the practices of capitalization, research tax credit, and meals and entertainment.
Additionally, Bob is active in the community, working to keep public trails and the grounds of public charities clean, volunteering with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and serving at his church.
“I believe that community service is a very important part of each person's responsibilities,” he says. “We must give back to the community that provides so much to us and our families.”
