Our man in California. This is how Bob Gabel (pronounced Gobble), one of our HZO Business Development Directors, has affectionately become known around HZO headquarters. Shortly after we opened the HZO office in San Jose, which gives us close proximity to a wide roster of consumer electronics giants, Bob joined the team and has been making his way up and down the 101 ever since.
Bob’s primary focus is to grow business with existing HZO customers and acquire new business for our consumer electronics business unit, which we shorthand as CEBU. Pretty straightforward stuff when your title is Biz Dev.
Even though we don’t see him on a daily basis, our man in California has become an important and essential member of our HZO team. A few intriguing facts about Bob. (Clue: Bob has a really dry sense of humor.)
