ABOUT ROB

Putting My Experience
to Work

I was born and raised in the Rockford area and learned early on the importance of a thriving community. I attended Southern Illinois University Edwardsville on a tennis scholarship and upon earning my degree, chose to come back to lay roots in Rockford. Continuing the legacy of a family business, I have served as the President & CEO of Midwest Packaging and Container since 2012.

Under my leadership, Midwest Packaging has invested millions of dollars into new building expansions, machinery, technology, and equipment that has resulted in the creation of over 50 new jobs.
