Partner, Of Counsel
As a search industry veteran, Bob has worked extensively with business owners, CEOs, Search Committees and Boards, helping them hire leaders to take their organizations to the next level. Bob’s search experience includes working in nearly every industry—from large public companies to startups to nonprofit and healthcare organizations.
Bob spent his early years in executive search supporting the information technology buildup and the internet explosion. He then co-founded KeyStone Search, a boutique executive search firm which was an early proponent of focusing on core values
and culture fit in the recruitment process.
Bob studied speech communications at the University of Minnesota and filmmaking at
the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which led to his first career as a videographer in corporate communications and training. Bob is active in the nonprofit and business community and is currently on the Boards of The Daniel Group and Currie State Bank.
Bob and his wife Angela Live in Edina with Buster, their West Highland Terrier, and are
the proud parents of Nathan Surprenant who can be seen acting in Twin Cities theater
productions. In his spare time Bob is active in his church, and he enjoys cycling, golfing, working out at the gym, and summer weekends at the lake.
