Rob talks about his role in the bank and life outside the bank.

What are you passionate about in your role? I find it interesting to learn the story behind each business and business owner I work with. It allows me to understand how I can help them achieve their financial goals. I do everything I can to make working with Webster Five a positive, beneficial experience.

What are some of your hobbies and interests? I enjoy running, playing basketball, traveling and spending time with my family. I’m also an avid Patriots fan.

Can you tell us a fun fact about yourself? I played in a charity basketball game with players from the 2004 Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots. Upon realizing they had to finish the game at the end of the third quarter to attend their ring ceremony, they came out of a timeout and hit a half-court shot to win the game. It was humbling to be on the court with athletes of that caliber.
