During his 25 years at NBTel and Aliant, Bob continually looked for ways to monetize the wealth of innovation that was being created by employees. Much of that was done with partnerships and the incubation of several start-ups. Bob was actively involved as a member of the leadership team of companies such as NBTel Mobility, ISM Datacor, Connectivity, iMagic TV, Prexar and Innovatia. After Bob retired from his Senior VP of Business Development position at Aliant, his desire to mentor and coach young entrepreneurs continued. He is tireless when it comes to guiding startups.
