Dr. Bob’s Bio

Hi. I’m Bob Roth (AKA Robert Roth, Ph.D.). My copywriting engages hearts and minds, and motivates action because it is grounded in four decades of marketing and branding experience.

Marketing, Branding And Copywriting

As a President, Chief Operating Officer, Vice President or Director, I served several industry-leading organizations:

  • As COO and President of the Grand Canyon Railway I implemented my doctoral dissertation to restore this historic 1901 steam railroad and living museum. Additionally, functioning as Chief Marketing Officer, I created an extensive advertising and PR campaign and wrote the majority of copy.
  • As V.P. Marketing for Del Webb Recreational Properties I crafted a brand and marketing strategy that transformed Lake Powell into a popular resort destination and paved the way for sale of the assets for $77 million. I worked closely with our ad agency creative teams in crafting copy.
  • As President of Roth/Graham (a full service ad agency) I functioned as chief cook and bottle washer and on-call copywriter.
  • As V.P. Marketing for Radisson Hotels I created a brand that positioned the company for growth from 30 to almost 1,000 properties. Once again, I worked closely with our ad agency creative teams in copywriting.
  • It was early in my career, as Director of National Advertising for the Holiday Inns System, that I developed a keen interest in, and love for copywriting.
