About Rob Evans
From managing a multi-million dollar online auction site, caddying on the Pro-Golf Tour, to teaching cricket to street kids in India, Rob is one of Canberra’s most well respected entrepreneurs.
Rob’s natural ability with numbers and his outgoing personality, saw him move from working with some of London’s biggest banks, to calling auctions at Grays and eventually opening his own business, ALLBIDS in 2002.
His passion for health and wellness has influenced many of his business ventures as well as his approach to management in and out of the boardroom. He’s run three marathons including the New York and Berlin Marathons.
Growing up in Canberra, Rob is an avid supporter and sponsor of the Canberra Raiders and sits on the board of Royal Canberra Golf Club where he is focused on many challenging projects including a $6million development of the course and additions to club facilities.
A big-picture thinker, Rob is passionate about accelerating Canberra to compete on the international stage for business and sporting events. This includes bringing international tournaments to the city and becoming an Asian freight hub.
He also hopes to align with more government agencies and private operators to adopt his ALLBIDS mantra ‘re-use is the best form of recycling’, through various corporate initiatives.
His philanthropic work includes supporting many charities and local community groups such as Lifeline, Canteen and the Heart Foundation.
