Rob went on to work with another entrepreneur with whom he built three companies from the ground up. This entrepreneurial experience served him as he became a Business Analyst working with a number of small to midsize businesses. It was this experience that fueled Rob to found Cogent Analytics, a small business in its own right, created with the purpose of helping other small businesses succeed. Rob has worked personally with nearly 2,000 midsize and small businesses across the country, helping each small business owner implement a tailored strategic plan for business growth and economic development.

Our collective passion is not only to support small businesses but to foster relationships and improve the lives of those in them. That mission starts at home with each of us, and I am eager to see the tangible role we will play in the future of consulting.” Our growth and success speaks for itself.
