C2C 7: A Conversation with Industry Icon Bob Black

July 21, 2021

The guest today is Bob Black. Since the late 1980s, Bob was selling drag soldering machines made by Zeva. While Bob has been involved in several businesses, he is perhaps best known for his work with Juki importing and selling component placement equipment. Bob has imported and sold equipment from Germany, Switzerland, Japan, and Italy. Bob shares his journey of entrepreneurship through several companies. Bob shares what he has learned working with international companies and even what he has taught his international colleagues. And, just in case anyone thinks owning your own business allows one to leisurely lounge around he talks about his years of spending 27 days a month traveling for his business.
