Senior Vice President of Operations, Recurring Services
Rob Dix joined SMS Assist in October 2018 as SVP of Operations. As the leader of our Exterior and Interior Recurring Services teams, Rob is responsible for enhancing the delivery and execution of commercial multisite property services nationwide.
Rob’s 20-year career in business launched in 1996, when he started his own landscaping company in central Indiana. He sold that business in 2001 and, from there, ascended to leadership roles at Cintas, The Brickman Group—which became BrightView Landscapes in 2016—and, most recently, Ferrandino & Son, Inc.
A veteran of the United States Marine Corps, Rob served in Operation Sharp Edge in Liberia, Operation Desert Shield in Saudi Arabia, and Operation Desert Storm in Kuwait. Interesting fact: He had a White House security clearance during the presidencies of Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush!
The Ohio State University counts Rob as an alumnus; here, he earned his Bachelor of Science in agriculture business and applied economics. He also completed a year-long program for emerging leaders in business, called the Rising Leaders Institute, through The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business. Rob is a graduate of NCO Leadership School through the United States Marine Corps in Quantico, Virginia.
