Rob Hawkins has been working as an advisor to businesses of all sizes for more than 20 years. As a Management Consultant at premier firms such as KPMG Consulting, BearingPoint, Diamond and PwC, Rob provided strategies and tactics in Marketing, Sales, IT Strategy and Regulatory Affairs to clients across many, disparate industries. Much of Rob’s work has involved making company’s data work for them to better interact with their customers or better understand their operations and industries.

It was during his highly analytical Masters program at the University of Pennsylvania that Rob first began working with turning large data sets into workable problem-solving models. Rob began his career as an economic analyst building large-scale economic models for the City of New York and using those models to help allocate infrastructure investment dollars. Rob leveraged his analytical skills when he moved to Time Inc., where he managed in-market retail testing for People Magazine and, ultimately, became finance and planning manager for People’s multi-hundred million dollar consumer marketing division.

After a year-long family sailing adventure, Rob brings his expertise to Hawkins Financial, LLC with a focus on management reporting and third-party applications. Rob is recognized as an expert with QuickBooks Advanced Reporting, creating custom reports and training end-users.
