East Coast Sales
Rob Birn is a native of New Jersey, though he doesn’t have the accent to prove it.
A foodie at heart, he earned a degree in hotel and restaurant management from Pennsylvania State because, he confesses, it would allow him to be around good food and fine wines. Rob worked for both the Hilton and Sheraton hotel brands before joining Grapevine Designs, a promotional marketing agency. There he was exposed to the apparel industry and managing a variety of factories overseas.
In 2014 Rob joined Concept III and now handles new account development, with a focus on the uniform market in addition to assisting with other accounts.
Rob says his partnerships with his customers become friendships and vice versa. That, he says is what makes his work so enjoyable.
After college Rob married Helen Parkes, his high school sweetheart. They have two sons and live in Red Bank, NJ. Rob not only coaches his son’s soccer team but he can be found skiing, playing tennis and surfing with them depending on the season. Though his five-times-a-week gym visits are impressive, he says it’s just so he can keep up with them.
