Recommendation by Alan Schonberg (legendary CEO, Management Recruiters International), February, 2013:

“I’ve known, worked with, observed, analyzed and watched Bob’s evolution since 1980—over 30 years!! In my opinion, there is not a person in his space more valuable to you than Bob Marshall.  As a student of our business, a trainer in our business and an overall consultant in our business, Bob has no peer in my opinion.  I don’t believe there is another person you could work with that would bring to each of you, as well as your AE’s, a greater insight into the dynamics of our profession.  This insight, coupled with his passion, has enabled me to rate him #1 in his field.”


Introduction by Alan Schonberg, Florida Area MRI Mini-Regional, Orlando, November 6, 1987:

“Speaking of the best, a young man named Bob Marshall started to work a desk in Reno, Nevada (in 1980). He did very, very well and he enjoyed working that desk. He moved to another office in the California area where he wanted to live and he came to the attention of we, the corporate group, in our ‘ivory tower’ in Cleveland, Ohio. And we sensed–we saw in this man–probably one of the most raw and greatest talents in terms of understanding the dynamics and especially the human dynamics of our business, but he had not taught them as yet. He had not espoused them to our universe. He had not trained people in them, but he said he wanted to and he said, ‘I know I’m raw, but I’ve got a tremendous amount of knowledge, of insight, and a message that I think can contribute so much to the good and welfare, the benefit of and the earnings of our Account Executives’. And, ultimately, as a result of that, Bob Marshall became our Regional manager on the West Coast. And what a record he achieved for himself. He almost became a ‘cult’ figure, not only on the West Coast, but as people around the country heard of him–of what he had to contribute. They asked him in groups and forums such as this, they asked him: Would he work with their groups?–would he come to their offices?–would he come to their region?–would he speak at their regional meetings?–and so forth. And Bob carved a special niche for himself in not only the culture of this company, but in the culture of this industry and the human dynamics that make it what it is. He is rare. He is unique. He is different. And for each one of you in this group, who has not heard him, today will be a memorable day you will never forget.”


“Mr. Bob Marshall”
