Robert’s an ace. The Buffalo Philharmonic contracted with his firm to lead the executive search for a new senior marketing officer and to provide interim leadership while the search was underway. Robert’s search was among the smartest and most robust I’ve seen in the business and his interim leadership produced new ideas and new sales. All on time and all on budget. So impressive, we continue to work with his firm.
We engaged Robert to undertake a holistic review of our subscription campaign strategy. He ran an efficient, data-driven process and provided us with actionable insights for both short-term impact and long-term consideration. I was impressed with his work and would recommend him – and his considerable expertise – to others.
I had the pleasure of working with Robert on a vital e-commerce modernization project for the Stratford Festival. Robert’s ability to steer the project, provide industry-leading insight on web development and manage multiple stakeholders – including c-suite executives – is unlike any I’ve seen before. He made a major impact on the productivity of the project team, ensuring successful completion of the project in a very short time. I strongly recommend jumping on an an opportunity to work with Robert.
Robert Sweibel is one of the best arts marketers in the business – a strategic thinker, excellent collaborator, detail- and data-driven manager, clear communicator, and all around great person. He helped Trinity Rep with interim services during a Director of Marketing transition, leading the efforts to produce one of our highest grossing productions in theater history. He was great to work with, and I would recommend him to anyone.
When I first worked with Robert a decade ago, he immediately distinguished himself among the many people I’ve worked with over the years. A first-rate marketer. Smart. Strategic. Creative. And totally dedicated. A great person to have around.
I owe everything I know about marketing to Robert — the most strategic, data-driven leader and practitioner with whom I’ve ever had the pleasure of working. His boundless energy and expertise are noteworthy, his impact across the arts and culture sector is substantial; but it is his devotion to mentorship and empowering his team members to reach their full potential that truly sets him apart. He is responsible for nurturing a cadre of emerging arts leaders (myself among them). Robert will be an asset to any arts and culture institution that engages his services.
We retained Robert Sweibel to provide interim marketing leadership during a critical, early phase of our five-year turnaround plan. Not only did Robert help exceed our goals; he assessed and improved our marketing top to bottom. He brought strategy to our tactics, and it resulted in improved sales. He was also instrumental in identifying a new VP of Marketing.
He’s so good, I hired him twice. Roundabout Theatre Company saw strategic advancement and record sales under his direction, and McCarter Theatre Center enjoyed expert interim leadership and received a first-rate strategic marketing assessment. Robert’s a go-to source for all kinds of marketing-driven expertise.
Robert is one of the best people out there. He is a smart and creative strategist and tactician. He’s also an effective advisor. Hire him!
