Robert Turner

Director

As a seasoned CFO, Bob believes most companies can improve performance in a measurable way by the dedicated use of data, analytics and targeted fiscal planning. He has been able to change the way companies look at their revenue and profit potential by reorienting the financial and data modeling focus to the inputs that determine business performance (KPI’s). Bob has transitioned many companies from simple Analysis to more advanced Analytics. He marries the company’s internal information with statistical forecasting and modeling techniques, allowing a business to know the “why” instead of just the “what”.

Outside of work, Bob loves to spend time with his wife and two daughters, as well as his pets. He loves listening and playing music, and even has a dedicated space in his house for recording. Bob’s favorite outdoor activity is golfing. He’s an HGTV fanatic, loves watching sports, particularly the Chicago Cubs and all things Notre Dame. Go Irish!
