In 1984, he began his career at IDS Financial Services, which eventually became Ameriprise Financial.

In order to provide an independent and more comprehensive approach to financial planning, Bob became an independent financial planner in 1996, affiliated with Investacorp, Inc. In 2007, he joined his current broker/dealer, Commonwealth Financial Network®, conducting business as Christian Wealth Strategies. Bob was excited to join Crossbridge Financial Group in 2017 and reunite with many of his former colleagues. This affiliation provides additional security for his clients with a more extensive succession and continuity plan for his practice.
