Robert holds a strong belief that the diverse financial tools and innovative growth/exit strategies available to small business owners should also be accessible to ranch owners.

With this vision, he co-founded Beartooth in 2005 to empower ranchers with these resources.

In his role at Beartooth, Robert oversees all operations, with a particular emphasis on cultivating meaningful relationships in capital sourcing, investment structuring, and management.

Before establishing Beartooth, Robert gained valuable experience at various financial institutions, including an agricultural investment company, a private equity investment firm, and Morgan Stanley, an investment bank.

He holds a degree in Economics from Yale University and a business degree from Stanford University.

Despite his academic and professional pursuits, Robert consistently found himself drawn back to his family's ranch near Cody, Wyoming.

Eventually, he made the decision to cease commuting to coastal regions for work and instead founded Beartooth to pursue his passion for supporting ranchers and their communities.
