Digital health innovations, increasing regulatory complexity, competition and rising costs are pushing our healthcare delivery system to the breaking point. These challenges can be overcome and that’s where Rob comes in. As the leader of our Healthcare & Life Sciences practice in the Pacific Northwest, he oversees a growing team that is helping organizations adapt and optimize for the future.
Rob’s deep entrepreneurial, commercialization, and go-to-market healthcare experience – including complex technology and organization redesign initiatives – makes him well-prepared to lead patient centered change. Previously, Rob worked for a leading health care organization to build one of the largest shared services programs in the country focused on reducing costs and increasing the quality of care in our PNW communities. A decade later, these programs have become the foundation of efforts to “humanize healthcare” and have touched millions of lives from Washington to California to Texas.
His talent for analysis, situational fluency, and deep domain expertise – spanning cloud infrastructure, data governance, commercial applications, data warehousing, analytics and visualization, core systems, and retail health – is an asset from the boardroom to project teams.
Prior to joining West Monroe in 2022, Rob spent more than two decades in healthcare and financial services consulting roles. He earned a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Washington and an MBA from Hawaii Pacific University.
Extreme conditions don’t phase Rob. He has built and slept in an igloo on Mt. Rainier and is a trained Wilderness First Responder – but happy that he has never had to use that credential.
He is passionate about quality family time – especially when that involves fishing, hiking, camping, skiing and snowboarding in the Pacific Northwest. But his favorite activity is downhill mountain biking at Tokul, Tiger Mountain, Duthie State Park, and Whistler when the opportunity arises.
Rob has been a graduate student mentor at the University of San Diego for nearly a decade and is looking to expand his volunteer work to the University of Washington and other local institutions.
