Rob began his financial career in Retail Banking and Lending in New England, and moved to Austin Texas in 1999 where he spent 7 1/2 years with Velocity Credit Union leaving as the Senior Loan Officer before coming on board with IFS.  While he started in the sales area working with loan applicants he quickly showed his attention to detail and assumed administrative duties in addition to his sales activities.
