Robert came to the community sector from a long and distinguished career in Senior Management in the retail field. He started on the ground floor as a trainee at Coles-Myer and worked his way up to manager, sometimes directing up to 16 stores at once.

He spent 18 years there before moving into the retail hardware field with Bunnings and also Glenford Tool Centre Australia.

Robert moved into the community services sector with the Endeavour Foundation as Commercial Manager. He loves this type of work so much that he was coaxed out of retirement to settle in as Enterprises GM, where he has been for one year.
