Rob was born in Lincolnshire and first joined BBJ in 2000, leaving to further pursue his career in finance and returning in 2007 to take up the role of general office manager, and manager of The BBJ Collection Ltd.
Rob was educated at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School in Horncastle, Lincolnshire (students of which make an annual pilgrimage to the battlefields of the Great War and, as a result of their experiences, have paid tribute to those who gave their lives in the conflict by producing the book and CD ‘From the Trenches’) then studied accountancy at the University of Central Lancashire.
His career has taken him to Australia working as a financial systems IT consultant, auditor and IT project manager for local authorities, the food industry, and as a financial advisor for a local gift company and local farmers.
His interest in the Great War stems from the passion of his father in law (David), who now work together along with the rest of the Team to ensure Bartletts continues to provide the service guests have come to expect from our company.
In addition he is charged with developing The BBJ Collection Ltd as a provider of WW1 memorabilia, extending its already successful range of books, CDs, artwork etc into museums on the Western Front, establishing the company in new markets and developing a wider range of our popular WW1 related items.
