He has the capacity to assess things quickly and acurately and develop plans to correct problems, fill gaps and set your organization on a trajectory for success. If you want a vision that keeps first things first and comes with a strategy that will work-call Bob"
James L Grubb, CFO "Operation Mobilization", International. " Bob is a deeply caring individual whose gift of leadership was visible to anyone who worked for him. He gave me a chance to express my leadership when on paper he should have not done so, but he is one who is willing to take chances based upon a well developed understanding of people. He allowed God to teach him, gift him and be used by Christ. He was always someone who freely gave to others what he had been taught, and he was taught a lot!"
Ken Burkhalter, Deputy Facilities Manager, The Rand Corp, Founder/Lead Consultant of FM&Beyond Bob Feitl, a good friend and one of the best organizational leaders I have ever been associated with. I had the pleasure of working with Bob as part of a large ministry that was experiencing dynamic challenge and change. In that role I saw firsthand his passion for leadership and his skill in leading complex organizations. Before joining ministry work Bob was a skilled Architect who developed projects in Europe and the Middle East. Bob is now an executive consultant, coach and speaker; bringing a unique blend of real world problem solving and passion-based leadership to his ministry and non-ministry clients.

" I am privileged to write this recommendation for Bob Feitl who we have known for 15 or more years. My wife and I have known him and his wife in a personal and professional context. Bob was especially helpful when our middle daughter’s husband was killed in an automobile accident and he was significantly ministered to us when we asked him to perform the funeral service.
They are both deeply committed to the gospel and service to the Church. They have a passion for people and are very sociable. Every one we knew where he served in California regarded him highly and a very hard worker. They knew he was one who could be trusted. I strongly recommend him"
