Robert A. Smith, or Bob as he prefers to be called, has always had a plan. But his focus hasn’t been so much on “what” he wanted to do as to “how” he wanted to do it. Bob is a huge believer that solutions aren’t pre-packaged and that everyone, no matter how big or small their company, deserves the time and attention needed to create a solution that’s just right for them.
Born and raised in Boulder, Bob double majored in business and economics at Regis College, then, a few years later, pursued his masters through Regis University in Management Information Systems. Bob’s early career experiences ranged from being a securities broker to software sales to operations. In the end, he joined MetLife, and after getting an understanding of the insurance business, realized that he’d rather be somewhere that he could create and act on his own ideas. So, in 1987, he joined his father at Smith & Company. Immediately he felt right at home.
Since then, Bob’s attention to detail and knowledge of the industry and product options has played an important role in the growth and success of Smith & Company. Most of all, Bob loves a challenge. His commitment to servicing his clients’ needs in the most appropriate way for them is what makes him such a trusted partner in business. Bob lives in Littleton with his wife Janice, his kids Sean and Meghan, and their three dogs.
