Bob worked as a Warehouse Manager for 20 years before taking a job in the Trucking Industry as General Manager, where he served an additional 20 years before retiring. Bob has never been one to sit still for long, so after retirement he joined Veterans’ Outreach as a part-time fundraiser. That was 11 years ago. In 2010, Bob and his wife Carol decided to move to Alabama to be nearer to their family. He met with John Ely, Veterans’ Outreach President, to discuss expansion into Alabama. Bob and his wife,
Carol, opened the office, and have made it our most successful Regional Office in the organization. Bob serves as Regional Manager and Carol as the Office Manager. They have developed a great team, and thanks to the Wheelers’ perseverance and dedication to Veterans, Veterans’ Outreach has been able to help hundreds of veterans in Alabama.
Bob is personally dedicated to helping those less fortunate than he. He worked in executive outplacement to help senior executives transition into new careers after losing their jobs.
He moved to Florida with his wife to escape snow and ice. Bob joined Veterans’ Outreach to assist veterans who cannot meet their financial obligations or, even more traumatic, are homeless. Bob has been very successful in expanding our reach to those veterans in need by doubling our geographical spread in Florida and we look forward to the day when our Florida team covers the entire state.
