Rob’s diverse and global background gives him knowledge which is not just textbook, he gives straight forward advice, directly answers questions and is honest. I’d certainly recommend him. Having real answers means that you can make real decisions, rather than hypotheticals.

Alex Candetti on Rob Comazzetto
