ABOUT

/ OUR STORY

Bassman Growth Advisory Partners is the vision of Bob and Sandy Bassman. Through 25 years of thrilling victory and agonizing defeats as entrepreneurs, they learned that there is absolutely no substitute for the guidance of an experienced person. An individual who has been through it all, made the mistakes and discovered the solutions. Someone who can guide you through the process, ensuring your ability to make the best decisions for your business.

/ Our Vision

Sadly, Bob and Sandy were not able to find such a person to help them in their business endeavors. Therefore, they were forced to venture alone on a path that ultimately reached unprecedented success in their industry. A success that culminated in annual revenues upwards of $15 million. However, as Bob will tell you, such success did not come without its challenges and an enormous amount of aspirin! Understanding the loneliness that most entrepreneurs feel as they guide their businesses down unfamiliar paths and around new obstacles, Bob and Sandy decided to help others avoid the darkness. Their combined vision lies in the hope that by sharing their experiences and learned lessons they can help others achieve the same level of success, while avoiding many of the potholes and wrong turns that claim most entrepreneurs. With that hope, Bassman Growth Advisory Partners was born on August 16th, 2004. Bassman Growth Advisory Partners is a consulting firm that offers ongoing executive coaching and ancillary services to small and medium-sized service based businesses. Our goal is threefold. First, we help your firm’s management team navigate any challenges it faces. Secondly, we ensure your firm reaches and exceeds its revenue targets. Lastly, we make certain that your firm’s growth outpaces that of the marketplace.

Bob Bassman

Relentless pursuit of perfection is the only way to describe Bob Bassman. Take one look at the numerous power-lifting trophies that line his office walls; you immediately know that this is an accomplished man. Yet, his greatest achievement has no plaque. You see no evidence of this success in his office except for a pile of “neatly” highlighted folders.

Relentless pursuit of perfection is the only way to describe Bob Bassman. Take one look at the numerous power-lifting trophies that line his office walls; you immediately know that this is an accomplished man. Yet, his greatest achievement has no plaque. You see no evidence of this success in his office except for a pile of “neatly” highlighted folders.

When you ask Bob what gets him up in the morning, he says enthusiastically, "helping others succeed." And that is what Bob has done. Since opening the doors of Bassman Growth Advisory Partners (BGAP) in August of 2004, he has helped his clients grow an average of more than 40% annually.

Prior to the formation of BGAP, Bob was founder and CEO of Kaye/Bassman International (KBIC), a professional search organization based in Plano, TX. When Bob sold the business to his management team in 2004, KBIC had reached annual revenues exceeding $15 Million. This is an impressive accomplishment for any permanent placement firm, especially one operating out of a single location. More extraordinary, it is a feat unmatched in the 40-year history of the Management Recruiters International (MRINetwork) system, where KBIC also won numerous awards like Office of the Decade. In 1996, KBIC won the coveted International Office of the Year award, a title they never relinquished until departure from the system in the end of 2005.

Bob takes pride in the fact that during his tenure at KBIC, the firm enjoyed a 95% retention rate, turned out over 200 Pacesetters, fourteen individual million dollar plus producers and two individual two-million dollar plus producers.

He currently resides in Addison, TX with his wife, Sandy. From 1984-2005 Sandy trained every single search consultant in the organization, including Jeff Kaye and all of the current Managing Partners. Outside of running his business, Bob is an avid Powerlifter (holds 27 World’s Records and was recently inducted into the Hall of Fame), is a 4.5 tennis player, a full marathoner (top time of 3:13:00) and a grandmaster chess player. Bob and Sandy’s truly favorite activity however is spending time with their children, Tracy and Paul, and their families.
