Bob manages CSCOE’s finance, accounting, human resources and information technology, as well as other administrative activities.
“My Catholic school roots go back to St. Peter’s grade school in Richfield (now Blessed Trinity) and include the University of Notre Dame. When I shifted my career focus to the nonprofit world, it was to St. Therese in Deephaven where I served as the director of finance and operations, which led me to CSCOE shortly after it was formed. It’s an honor to help schools assess where they need investment and resources.”
Robert notes that the most gratifying part of his role is writing grant checks that have a profound impact on our Catholic grade schools.
“I am working to instill sound business practices into our Catholic schools, which will help strengthen them now and into the future.”
