Early successes and challenges in his own career inspired Bob Bethel’s passion for taking over struggling businesses and guiding them towards profitability.
Robert Thomas Bethel is the orchestrator of seventy-seven business turnarounds over the past fifty years. Early successes and troubles in his own professional career inspired his passion for taking over struggling businesses and guiding them towards the road to profitability.
Bob Bethel has turned around companies in various industries—from restaurant chains to engineering firms—and has helped save over ten thousand jobs as a result of his strategic business counsel.
Bob published his first book, Strengthen Your Business, in September of 2017. “The origin of business failures, more often than not, can be attributed solely to poor management and the owner(s) inexperience. It is neither an unforgiving economy nor a lack of cash to blame, but rather, an absence of knowledge on how to turn a profit,” says Bethel. “This book is a practical application for business owners as well as an expert, step-by-step guide for those who are stuck in a failing business and struggling to stay afloat.”
A graduate of the Owen Graduate School of Management at Vanderbilt University, Bob owns several companies across the southern United States and has operated businesses both nationwide and internationally.
He is an Eagle Scout and, in addition to counseling, also spends time teaching three-day seminars across the country on best business practices.
Bob currently resides in Orange Beach, Alabama with his wife, Reese.
