Robert Boyar

Robert Boyar is founder of 3BLpartners, which works with corporations, NGO’s, non-profits and startups to grow the three sustainability measures of performance known as Triple Bottom Lines:

  • Improving profits
  • Improving environments
  • And most importantly, improving peoples’ lives

For Robert, 3BLpartners is the actualization of a vision that began in the early 2000’s – focusing research, consulting and interactive processes with making and selling 3BL products and services.

Robert’s initiation into the formal Sustainability world began when he was part of Stanford Research Institute (now SRI International), where the original "stakeholder" and "voluntary simplicity" concepts were created. Robert led the expansion and corporate utilization of the VALS multi-client research program -- seminal in identifying, legitimizing and quantifying nascent sustainability elements and 3BL population segments.

Robert has worked with more than 100 Fortune 500 companies, creating new businesses and products, managing change, catalyzing teams and opening cultures. His experience includes creating and launching multi-million dollar market research programs; helping core teams create billion-dollar businesses for Apple, Procter & Gamble, and Kraft, among others; and developing offerings for blue-chip consulting, research, communication, strategy, marketing and package design companies.

Robert’s background includes executive positions at Procter & Gamble and FCB (advertising); psychology and change management expertise at SRI International (a strategic think tank) and Harvard University; creative and group process expertise from Synecticsworld, as well as other leading organizations and individuals.
