Meet #TeamENA: Rob, Managing Partner

Managing Partner Rob Newland wears a lot of hats at ENA, from his legendary brainstorms to flawless event executions and everything in between. Check out his interview below for insights on building #TeamENA, the hat he wishes he could wear on a tugboat, and the importance of keeping “growing up” in perspective.

Q: Before you started running a business, what do you wish you knew?

A: I wish I had understood how important it is to have the right mix of people working in your company for the success of a business.

Q: What does it take to be part of Team ENA? What do you look for in employees?

A: To fit in at ENA, you must be adaptable, driven, and a good communicator.

Q: If you could do another job for one day, what would it be?

A: I would be a tugboat owner/operator.

Q: All right, let’s talk ad boards. Can you tell us about one of your favorites?

A: We brought together a panel of scientists who had developed a particular medication and a group of patients whose lives had been changed by that medication. Their dialogue was inspiring.

Q: As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A: I think I wanted to be a doctor, but honestly, my focus was never really on growing up.
