Chairman/CEO
Bassman Growth Advisory Partners

FIT – Financial Independence Time Table –

Relentless pursuit of perfection is the only way to describe Bob Bassman. Take one look at the numerous power-lifting trophies that line his office the walls, you immediately know that this is an accomplished man. Yet, his greatest achievement has no plaque. You see no evidence of this success in his office except for a pile of neatly highlighted folders.

When you ask Bob what gets him up in the morning, he says enthusiastically, “helping others succeed.” And that is what Bob has done. Since opening the doors of Bassman Growth Advisory Partners (BGAP) in August of 2004, he has helped his clients grow an average of more than 40% annually. Before BGAP, Bob was founder and CEO of Kaye/Bassman International (KBIC), a professional recruitment organization based in Plano, TX. When Bob sold the business to his management team in 2004, KBIC had reached annual revenues exceeding $15 Million.

This is an impressive accomplishment for a single site, permanent placement, firm. More extraordinary, it is a feat unmatched in the 40-year history of the Management Recruiters International (MRINetwork) system, where KBIC also won numerous awards. In 1996, KBIC won the coveted International Office of the Year award, a title they never relinquished until departure from the system in the end of 2005. Bob takes pride in the fact that during his tenure at KBIC, the firm enjoyed a 95% retention rate, turned out over 200 Pacesetters, ten individual million dollar plus producers and two individual two-million dollar plus producers. Prior to opening KBIC,

Bob enjoyed a successful sales career with Atlas Match and Universal Match. He currently resides in Addison, TX with his wife, Sandy. Outside of running his business and participating in power-lifting competitions, Bob enjoys spending time with his children, Tracy and Paul, and their families.
