Rob has worked to conserve Western Colorado’s iconic landscapes since joining the Land Trust in 1996. He has led the organization through a significant growth and transformation, including a collaboration with a neighboring conservation group that led to the creation of Colorado West Land Trust in 2018. He has been involved in hundreds of conservation transactions and has established strategic partnerships with private and public entities. Rob is a community volunteer, serving on the boards of local and statewide nonprofits. When not in the office, he can be found hiking or biking on the trails of western Colorado and southeast Utah, preferably with his wife, Sheri, daughter, and two dogs. In 2009, he was awarded a Loeb Fellowship at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. Rob has an M.S. in Natural Resource Policy from University of Michigan and a B.A. in American Studies from Wesleyan University.
