Head of Celebration & Dance Programs
Rob decided on a career in the Student Travel & Event Business after working as a University Representative for a nationwide student travel company during his senior year in college. This experience changed Rob’s life and directed his career path away from Hotel Management to the Student Travel & Event Industry. It turned out that the Spring Trip that Rob marketed was not delivered as advertised so on his return flight home he decided to create a student travel & event company that treated students with the respect they deserve.
In 1979, Rob started World Class Vacations and after successfully building the company he sold the business and eventually joined the WorldStrides Management Team.
Rob enjoys the creative process of the business and working with the Innovation Team to creating new events for students and their families. Dance The World and Cook Around The World features Celebrity Pro Dancers from Dancing with the Stars and Celebrity Chefs from the top Cooking Shows. Rob is currently working on a New Faith Based Initiative called Kingdom of Believers, a subject that he has a great deal of passion for in his life!
