Bob Stassar is one of the founding partners of Benedict Peax. He has a Master in Business Law from Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR). Bob started his professional career as a Scientific Researcher at the Tax Faculty of the EUR and (after a short stint in the military as a platoon commander) went on to work as a lawyer in a law firm managing cases in family, criminal and business law.
When the entrepreneurial bug bit him, Bob joined the first Dutch consulting firm specialised in obtaining grants and incentives for innovation and growth.
As one of the owners and directors of the company he contributed over a period of 18 years to the international expansion and growth to more than 300 people and gained experience in Mergers and Acquisitions, started green fields, built and consolidated teams.
Three adolescent sons and their passion for football, basketball and rugby take care of the possibility of there ever being a dull moment in Bob’s life. They also inspire Bob’s own fight against gravity, for which he visits the gym at least twice a week.
