Craig on Rob -
"My first encounter with Rob was a strange one - I had just been appointed Global Creative Director for Puma’s apparel collections, but Rob was about to leave Puma for Nike.
The headhunter brokering the deal told me to check him out as she thought I'd like him and that he was an asset to the brand.
I'm at Puma's Global Sales meeting in Frankfurt and there was Rob on stage, presenting his latest creative vision for Puma Football to 600 people - blowing the whole room away aged just 25.
I told the headhunter "he’s going nowhere" and made a deal to keep him at Puma (not many people knew that, until now!).
We soon became lifelong friends and together have created some of the most innovative products to grace our industry.
Rob’s been a rock for me since and I learn from him every day."
