Bob’s business career began with labor relations, personnel, and human resource positions with Western Gear, Mattel, Irvine Company, and the Aetna Realty Group. In 1978, he left his position as Vice President, Human Resources for Aetna’s Realty Group and started Arboit Associates, a human resource consulting firm, in order to offer his experience to smaller firms. The firm’s initial focus was on compensation/benefit surveys, benefit program cost analysis, and management development. This work led to a working alliance with Business Planning Service in 1980; and in 1982 Arboit Associates and Brown Business Planning Services formally joined forces in a partnership – Benefits Planning Service (BPS). From its inception, Benefits Planning Service has focused on providing its clients with the highest level of service and support. Bob’s focus has been on the design, implementation, administration and cost analysis of client plans.
