    Learn more about Robert

    Robert's early work at an apple-distribution co-operative serving North America sparked not only his interest in agriculture but an admiration for entrepreneurial passion, spirit and values.

    Becoming a key member of the Dimensions Computer Systems implementation team in 1998, and then LBMX's management team in 2004, Robert has worked closely with major buying groups around the world, deepening his broad and functional knowledge of how technology can help co-operatives and their members achieve operational excellence.

    Engaging his long-time interest in agriculture, Robert remains a student of the science and industry behind it and makes agritourism a regular part of family excursions.
