Before Robert became Vice President of Operations for Vox printing he started out boxing up stitched booklets and alternating the direction they were placed in the box every 10 booklets. He was able to secure this first job at age 6 after a rigorous interview by his 10 year old brother in the parking lot where he proved with confidence he could count to 10. After college Robert joined Vox Printing full time in 1992 and has led Vox’s 60 employees on their continuous improvement journey and implementation of Lean tools. His dissatisfaction with process inefficiencies is both legendary and at times exhausting to those who know him.
Robert is active in the Student Ministry Department at his church where he chairs committees, teaches Sunday school, served as an Elder. He also leads a middle school boy’s small group where he pays his penance for his antics as a 7th grader. He is involved in his son’s BSA troop. He has served as a board member and speaker for National PIA Continuous Improvement Conferences and has served on Vo-Tech boards to help guide the Graphic Arts programs in the state of Oklahoma.
Robert has been married to Amy since 1997 and they have 2 phenomenal kids.
He earned a Management and Marketing degree from Oklahoma State University in 3 years (Robert does not like inefficiencies).
