Rob's Background

Rob started his career with Ernest and Julio Gallo Winery in Oklahoma and Texas. His father-in-law recruited Rob to work for him at Bordner Roofing Company in 2000. At that time, Bordner did new construction roof installations for builders. Over the next 20 years, Rob worked to develop Bordner's replacement business specializing in roofs, windows, siding, stucco, and bathroom remodels serving homeowners. Rob had the opportunity to purchase the business in 2019, along with his partner, and another Acumen partner, Sam Fleenor. Today, Rob sits in the Visionary seat with the responsibility of culture- development, and growth.

Rob Joins Acumen

Rob became an Acumen partner in 2018 and is on the team Ignite, led by Growth Catalyst, Scott Stanger. Rob enjoys having a network of like-minded business owners that have been instrumental in his growth as an owner. He says:

"My biggest takeaway from Acumen is the ability to ask detailed questions about business operations and learn from others' honest feedback that seeks to honor biblical values. Having a community of like-minded leaders willing to engage in problem-solving challenges me to grow so I can also be a benefit to my council land the community at large"

He relates to Acumen's mission in the way he treats his people and customers. He identifies most with the idea that we are all like-minded with the same mindset in the Acumen community. Rob believes that business leadership and ownership is the most challenging area to live out your faith when money is at stake. He says, "Faith speaks the loudest when decisions are made to see how it aligns with the values we say are important."

He has been married to his best friend, Tatum for 25 years and they have three children. His family is his hiking and biking partners and his best times are spent with them.
