He has had extensive experience as a CIO, including serving as the divisional information officer for two Sandoz divisions, as vice-president of IT for Henkel N.A., and as vice-president of IT for Cognis Corp. In these positions, Bob worked in Europe managing large international IT organizations, developing strategic IT plans, aligning IT to business goals, and consolidating global IT costs and organizations.

In 2004, Bob started a management consulting company based upon the ITin3D© cost modeling tool, which he invented.

These cost modeling principles are fully aligned with ITIL and ITSM service concepts and can be expanded beyond service-based costing to include mergers and acquisition integration models, data center migrations, unit-based cost determination and benchmarking, and IT budgeting and strategic scenario analysis. Bob has a bachelor’s degree from Brown University and an MBA in finance from Fairleigh Dickinson University. He has written numerous articles on the subject of IT value creation and service cost management.
