Welcome to the sixth episode of the Teamalytics podcast: Optimize Your Team. Throughout this series, we will speak with CEOs, business leaders, veterans, and more and get their insight into leading and building strong teams.

When Rob took over as CEO at IMA in 1998 the company had about $11m in revenue.  Over the last 20 years, IMA has grown to place $8bn of insurance premium with $500m in revenue and just under 2,000 employees all over the US.

I have enjoyed getting to know Rob and his team at IMA over the years and in this episode we talk about some of the lessons learned leading a fast growing firm that has been very acquisitive. We explore how his leadership style has changed as the company he’s led has grown exponentially and learn a little about the unique challenges and opportunities that come from leading an employee owned company.
