When leading NYSBC efforts, Bob draws from his diverse experience in sustainable business, nonprofit development, community organizing, and activism. Bob has been instrumental in several sustainable business startups including a skateboard manufacturer, bio-composite manufacturer, green building worker-owned cooperative, a web development firm, and a coworking space.

In the nonprofit sector, Bob cofounded and served as president of the Green Resource Hub, a nonprofit focused on the marketplace for sustainable products and services. Bob then cofounded a “triple bottom line” business network called the Sustainable Enterprise & Entrepreneur Network (The SEEN), which he helped grow to over 100 members.
