America’s leading Christian CEO forum, building GREAT businesses for a GREATER purpose.

Regardless of how long you’ve been a business leader, you probably still have those days when you are keenly aware of the gaps in your knowledge and experience. The challenge for many of us is that we don’t set aside time to work “on” our business rather than “in” it. We might read books, attend industry seminars or even engage consultants, but we don’t regularly schedule time to focus on big-picture issues. The C12 Group is a unique forum for Christian CEOs and business owners who are intentional about business, ministry and personal growth.

Bob Shallow


Bob was blessed with a unique 28-year corporate career that touched many aspects of business leadership.  This included working for Ford Motor Company where only God could have orchestrated the 16-year path that took him from Database Programmer to Engineering Manager for the Taurus/Sable Product Line.  Along the way Bob became a certified Project Management Professional (PMP), earned his Master of Science degree in Engineering Management (Wayne State), became certified in Lean Manufacturing and as Six Sigma Quality ‘Black Belt.’ After much thought and prayer, Bob made the difficult decision to leave Ford Motor Company, joining NACCO Materials Handling Group where he spent the next six years as Director of Global Product Development Processes, Systems and Operations, and then as the Director of the Americas Warehouse Products Development Center.  Prior to joining C12, Bob served as Vice President of Quality, Engineering and Continuous Improvement for TWG, a Dover Company.

Bob is thrilled with the opportunity to bring his passions together as a C12 Chair for metro Jacksonville and northeast Florida!  He has always had a passion for leadership and serving his Lord which has given him many opportunities to serve in church leadership capacities (e.g., Deacon, Teacher, Youth Leader, Small Group Leader).  Bob also has a passion for workplace leadership, teaching, coaching and mentoring, having developed and delivered many training classes in Project Management, Change Management and Lean implementation.  He is a student of Organizational Development theory and tools (including DiSC and Meyers-Briggs personality profiling and Emotional Intelligence/EQ tools) and has also facilitated numerous process improvement and Kaizen events.  He has also served as Adjunct Professor at Wayne State University, teaching a Masters-level Project Management course.  Because of Bob’s broad, hands-on experience with strategic and operational management methods, he has an expansive toolkit from which to draw upon to help businesses achieve their desired results.

Bob and his wife, Sandy, live in St. Johns, Florida with their two youngest sons Jack and Harrison.  Their oldest daughter, Brooke, graduated from Auburn University and is now serving with her husband Robert as missionaries to the University of Birmingham campus in Birmingham, England.  Their oldest son Trent is attending Valdosta State University in Georgia, majoring in Finance.  Bob enjoys time with his family, outdoor activities, tennis, golf, running and walking their Black Lab, Vader, as in Darth.
