His unique skill set and proven track record have helped him guide Utah conservatives to victory in even the toughest of races.
An unwavering commitment to Republican values has led Rob to serve the Utah Republican Party as a county delegate, state delegate, precinct chair, and most recently, Utah GOP vice-chair. He’s also chaired several committees and played a critical role in improving, promoting, and supporting the caucus system. Rob’s dedication to the party is rooted in his desire to help Utah Republicans be more engaged in the political process. He believes that supporting candidates and partnering with other conservatives is the most effective way to navigate challenges and seize opportunities.
Outside of politics, Rob is currently working with several Utah businesses to support the manufacturing and energy sectors. He’s also involved in the development of an education startup designed to give parents the tools needed to assist in their children’s success. Additionally, Rob is passionate about advocacy and giving back to the community. He is committed to empowering sexual assault victims to take back their lives and promotes education that will prevent this type of future abuse. He has also volunteered for organizations that tackle issues of addiction, crime, homelessness, and mental illness.
