His petroleum products background, coupled with his experience in growing businesses as a CEO, make him a uniquely qualified choice to lead Cadence," said Alex Carles, Managing Partner of Wellspring Capital Management. 

Prior to his appointment to the role of Chief Executive Officer of Cadence Group, Robert served as CEO and Director of BearCom. Prior experience also includes CEO and Director of BakerCorp and Safety-Kleen, both PE-backed companies. Robert started his career at Ashland and spent 18 years leading multiple businesses within Valvoline. His last position was President of Ashland Distribution. Robert is forward-thinking and has a proven track record of building both organic and M&A growth, as well as expanding organizations' capabilities.
