    Our industry is changing. Every month we hear about another foundation repair company being acquired by a large venture capital firm. Almost every privately owned company is now having to compete with these large, heavily-capitalized corporations. In this presentation Rob will provide insights on how to respond to this through the strategic process he utilized and taught for hundreds of companies throughout he United States.

    Prior to joining Fortress in 2019, Rob Stam owned a successful business strategy and marketing agency, which he sold to a national franchise where he served as director of Marketing.
