A FRESH VISION FOR WINNEBAGO COUNTY
Democratic candidate for Winnebago County 17th District Board Member
"What drives me every day is to achieve healthy and sustainable growth for myself, my business, and my community. I see the tremendous potential our community holds and aspire to be a part of the process that helps us achieve it."
Putting My Experience
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.
"I see Rob's leadership style as leading with listening and seeking to understand, encouraging others, and taking a strong position when needed. When there is an issue about which Rob feels passionately, he is willing to put in the hard work to make a difference...he does this through hard work, kindness, and encouraging leadership in those around him."
