To work or not to work – that is the question, and when you reach 80, it is a very good question indeed. Having reached the point, sound of body and mind, you first should be grateful for having gotten this far. Man...Views: 451

Bob Harris is a veteran box salesman, world adventurer and former State Department consultant whose life and career paths are as inspiring as they are unusual – and at least a bit mysterious. Currently serving as Vice President of International Sales for Donco Solutions in Chicago, he also works as an independent consultant and entrepreneur in several other areas of the carton and container industry. From 1960 to 1971, Bob published Boxboard Containers Magazine, and during the 70s and 80s he worked as an overseas consultant for the State Department’s AID division. In addition, Bob has been involved in the operation of corrugated plants at home and abroad, and he is well versed in board-mill startups and expansions. He is also one of the founding investors of the Kimpton Hotel Group.
Bob’s other claim to fame is as a world adventurer and traveler extraordinaire. As of late 2012, he has traveled to over 190 countries, climbed fifteen major mountains, camped out in deserts, traversed oceans – and gone to very-off-the-beaten-path places - most recently Yemen. He is as comfortable meeting with world-renowned business leaders as he is walking with tribal leaders in Third World countries…living the words of one of his favorite poets, Robert Frost - to “walk with kings but keep the common touch.” Bob and his wife, Brigita, live in Chicago and have two sons.
