Bob Stockard is an inveterate entrepreneur who has built several companies from concept to profitability over a 25-year time span. His first investment was a food distribution business which he started while he was attending UMass Boston. Having negotiated the distribution rights for a Puerto Rican coffee, Bob was able to commence mainland distribution and within a two-year period sold the rights back to the manufacturer for a 50 x return on initial investment. Bob then entered the corporate world and received training in the areas of customer service, general management and sales from one of the world’s largest transportation companies.
Returning to his entrepreneurial roots he acquired a small professional services firm, which grew into one of the largest firms of its kind specializing in the healthcare market. A spin off of that business was the concept of a sales force outsourcing company for the Energy, Telecommunications and Healthcare industries. Bob was able to take the concept and build it into a $40 million business while raising $7 million in institutional money.
In 2000 Bob formed Roberts & Gill, Inc. a firm focused on corporate renewal and value creation for the Medical Device, Aerospace, Consumer Products and General Industrial sectors. Roberts & Gill raised over $300 million in equity and closed $100M in exits while conducting turnarounds for clients such as Carlyle, Canaan Partners, CDI, Danaher, Signet Healthcare Partners, Ironwood Capital, Heron Capital, BB Biotech Ventures and Ticonderoga Capital.
In 2013 Bob created Mill Hill Capital Inc. to provide General Partner services to High Net Worth families and family offices looking to make direct investments in lower middle market companies in a more fee friendly and transparent fashion. In the last 3 years Mill Hill has deployed $30M of equity across 7 platforms.
