In addition to his supervisory duties, Bob was also responsible for managing the investment portfolios for a broad range of clients, including individuals, corporations, and not-for-profit entities.

Bob served as Treasurer for eight years at the Wisconsin Trust Account Foundation, an organization formed by the Supreme Court of Wisconsin for the purpose of making grants to charitable groups which provide legal services to Wisconsin residents who are otherwise underserved by the legal community. Bob also served for several years as Treasurer of the Middleton Hills Neighborhood Association and is currently a Board member of the APT Foundation.
