The Publicity Engineers Team


Rob has a whopping 34 years of KBB experience behind him and has witnessed huge change including the birth of many market leading KBB companies whilst sadly, seeing many disappear too. Rob also laments many key industry personalities who became friends moving out of the sector over the years for a whole host of reasons.

Rob cut his industry teeth on KBB trade mags including KBB Review and BK&T and also was also Exhibition Manager of the leading industry trade show KBB for seven years. Before launching Publicity Engineers 21 years ago, Rob was Publisher of industry glossy magazine Kitchens, Bedrooms & Bathrooms (KBB).
