Our team


Bob is a seasoned global business leader with over 30 years experience in building companies from the ground up, growing both their geographic market footprint and scaling their operational practices.

Bob was one of the first employees of IWG (formerly called Regus), now the world’s largest operator of workplace solutions. Bob oversaw its growth from four locations in Belgium to over 3500 locations in over 100 countries internationally. During this time, Bob spent 4 years living in Brussels and another 4 years in London before moving back to America to oversee the opening of the IWG North American and Latin Operations. He spent his final years at IWG overseeing the Sales Division of the company and was responsible for generating over $2 Billion dollars in Annual revenues.

Bob joined MDCV and the Provence Rose Group in 2018 with a specific mission. He wanted to take on a whole new challenge and build another business from the ground up. As a regular visitor to Chateau de Berne for the last 13 years, Bob fell in love with both the Provence area and its wines. It's therefore a natural fit that Bob is now able to harness his passion for this style of wine with the MDCV family of estates and pair it alongside his commerical, sales & marketing experience.

Bob lives with his wife and 3 children in Westchester, NY.
