Brent Robertson, Fathom
As a Founding Partner at Fathom, Brent has been working one on one with leaders since Fathom’s inception – guiding them closer to what matters to them, helping them see the potential their organizations possess, and focusing their energy in ways that will make the biggest difference. Brent advises leaders and teams from organizations such as BlumShapiro, Jacobs Vehicle Systems, Foodshare, Halloran Sage and Svigals + Partners.
He guides organizations through clarification of goals and intentions, the design of new organizational futures, and the strategies that will realize them. Whether the objective is expansion into a new market, rethinking a brand position, realignment of internal teams, or advancing a team responsible for client relationships—the result is a true-to-life vision, the tools to make it happen and a won’t-fail-with-me position.
Brent is committed to creating a world where people can bring their full selves to everything they do. Brent is particularly inspired by the Advanced Manufacturing, Architecture, Engineering and Construction industries and the organizations that support them. He serves as a board member and strategic advisor to the Construction Institute, SMPS, and Conscious Capitalism.
