Bob Baine

Cell: (214) 763-5231

Bob joined the CBI Team in April, 2016 following a long and successful career managing Sales and Marketing programs for Industrial and Construction manufacturing companies. Bob has managed both Regional and International programs for large public companies as well as smaller private equity manufacturers. His industry expertise and a diverse network of past and current associates makes him uniquely qualified to identify and solicit the perfect partner for your business acquisition or sale.

Raised as a “military brat,” Bob and his three brothers moved often and developed the ability to make friends and adjust to new surroundings and opportunities. Following college at Stephen F. Austin in Nacogdoches, Texas, Bob relocated to Dallas where he began his career in high-end kitchen and bath remodeling. Joining The Lawless Group in 1982, over the next twenty plus years Bob helped the company grow from start-up to the largest multi-line industrial agency in the country. During this period, Bob took periodic assignments working directly with several of the agency’s preferred principals.

Whether managing an in-house sales force or a large rep agency, Bob’s teams have received numerous national and regional achievement awards and he has been asked to sit on both advisory and operating Board of Directors.

Being recruited to join Global Manufacturing, Inc. in Little Rock as President and COO in 2005 provided Bob with the opportunity of a lifetime to relocate from Dallas to Central Arkansas. Immediately falling in love with Little Rock’s small city charm and quality of life, and after steering the company through the economic downturn with no loss of jobs or layoffs, Bob sold his interest to the majority shareholder.

Bob and his wife Beth live in the Overcreek neighborhood and have a blended family of five children and three grandchildren scattered across the South. Bob is an active member of Pulaski Heights United Methodist Church where he leads and teaches an Adult Sunday School class and has participated in local and international mission efforts. An avid reader and amateur historian, Bob plays golf and tennis regularly and he and Beth love to travel when they have the opportunity.

Please contact Bob, whether you’re looking to buy or sell a business. As part of the CBI Team he has access to the tools you need to make your transaction a total success.
