Bob started his career at the Minnesota Department of Revenue, working 6 years as a sales tax auditor, and 6 years as a senior auditor in the income/franchise tax area. Bob then moved to KPMG where he helped form the state and local tax group in the Minneapolis office. When one of his clients, Land O’Lakes, was looking for help, Bob jumped at the chance. Bob’s career spanned 20 years at Land O’Lakes, the last 17 as their Tax Director. Bob enjoyed every minute there, and was very active on the national cooperative stage, serving tenure as the chair of the Legal, Tax and Accounting arm of the National Council of Farmer’s Cooperatives.
After retiring from Land O’Lakes in July, 2018 Bob and Steve decided to join forces, as they had stayed connected since Steve formed ThreeFive.
Nestled in the heart of the Twin Cities on Lake Calhoun, ThreeFive has fostered a work environment to attract key talent that is second to none in addressing corporate tax benefit opportunities for its clients.
