Robert worked for more than 40 years as an accountant with Ernst & Young. In 2014 he joined the board of directors at Hillside Family of Agencies affiliate Hillside Children’s Foundation. He is also the treasurer of Electronics Park LLC, and participates in the Strategic Partnership Committee of the CNY Community Foundation.
“I was honored to be asked to join the board. It’s very easy to get focused on yourself, your family and your business, and to be somewhat unaware of the true needs of the community. Gaining the awareness of everything from literacy, to health care, and the spectrum of needs in the community is what I learned from my association with the foundation. It was eight years after I was a board member that the foundation purchased the Philanthropy Center. It was probably the single largest change in the organization that will have a lasting impact.”
