Bob graduated from the University of Texas @ Austin in 1983 with a degree in Marketing and Finance. He began his career in the advertising industry in September 1983 at Young and Rubicam in New York City as a local broadcast avails coordinator. After six months, he was promoted to media planner on Ronzoni Dry Pasta and Johnson’s Baby Oil. He was promoted to Senior Media Planner in September 1985 and assigned to the Merrill Lynch account. In October 1986, after 3 years at Y&R/NY, he moved to Atlanta where he worked at Austin Kelley Advertising, Bozell, Jacobs, Kenyon & Eckhardt and Cole Henderson Drake where he worked on a wide variety of accounts. In September of 1988, he moved to BBDO, Atlanta’s largest advertising agency, working on the Dodge Dealer Associations in the South which billed $12 million when he was hired. During his 16 year career at BBDO, he was promoted several times and was instrumental in selling the dealers on pooling their funds to garner a greater advertising impact. Over the years, his media planning group grew from 2 people to 17 as he also created and sold the media plan to have the dealers increase their advertising assessment from 1% to 2%. And due to its success over a two year period, Bob’s region was awarded a truck marketing overlay budget throughout the South (10 states from NC to TX). At his peak, Bob, now SVP Group Media Director, was responsible for a Dodge DAA & Truck media budget of $250 million in the southern region.
Bob had always wanted to start a business with his brother Joe, so in July 2004, he left BBDO to pursue that dream and they started Buckhead Document Pros. In addition to calling on law firms which was Joe’s expertise, Bob leveraged the contacts he had made at BBDO over his 16 year career and created the entire printing side of Buckhead Document Pros. This allowed the company to land and secure a wide variety of accounts, not relying solely on Law Firms for revenue. Business cards, letterhead, envelopes, brochures, Conference Programs, PowerPoint presentations and large color/B&W posters are among the many print offerings at BDP. Initially, companies like Fox Sports Network, Comcast Spotlight and Cox Radio Atlanta became customers of Buckhead Document Pro and these clients are still on the roster today.
Bob is an active member of the Buckhead Business Association which has resulted in new and on-going business for Document Pros.
