​Block & Associates is an advisory firm based in Europe but with an international client profile. It was established by principal Bob Block in 2001 after his early retirement from the last of several C-Suite international management roles in telecommunications and other fields. He brings a straight-forward, absolutely direct approach to finding growth opportunities for clients across multiple industries. He provides tactical solutions, communication development and strategic project management services tailored to each specific client. A true Bespoke Advisory Service: nothing out of a box or template - always focused simply on individual client needs.

Bob has been a Founder and is a Fixer. Key areas of expertise include Revenue Improvement, Expense Reduction/Control and resulting bottom-line improvement.

​Bob started his first business at the age of 16 in New York, where he grew up and went on to become involved in a variety of start-ups, turn-arounds and mature enterprises and has provided advisory services both in the US and internationally along the way.

Block & Associates provides independent goal-focused expertise without jargon, just down-to-earth creativity, hard work and close collaboration with clients to drive financial and operating results improvements.

Bob focuses on the SME end of the business spectrum and is agnostic when it comes to the business vertical – from manufacturing to health care to telecoms – the basic elements are always the same: People-Products-Clients/Prospects and Competition

While many consultants and advisors excel in providing exhaustive & voluminous reports, to restatements of the obvious and oblique 'suggestions' I take a diametrically opposite approach.

I listen - Meet/Question - Understand - Propose Assignment - Triage Data and People - Devise Actionable Tactics - Present/Gain Buy-in - Hand off or Assist Client to Execute
