After leaving Ringling Bros., Bob switched to management consulting before eventually becoming CEO of United Healthcare of the Mid-Atlantic, a $300+ million division of United Health Group. Then Bob became East Region President for United’s Medicare Advantage business, a $1.4 billion division. In these capacities, Bob oversaw customer service, operations, human resources, marketing, sales, network development, finance, and account management.

In 2007, Bob started his own fitness-related business, which included the American Odyssey Relay, the Rock the Creek Relay, and related ventures. As a one–man shop, Bob ran operations, marketing, and finance. A 200-mile, overnight relay race, the American Odyssey was an ambitious enterprise that Bob directed for nearly a decade before founding Epicoach.
