The TharpeRobbins Company, Inc. welcomes Rob Danna to the newly created position of vice president of performance and recognition solutions. Danna reports to Ed Robbins, senior vice president of client solutions and strategy for TharpeRobbins, a global leader in the managed recognition and rewards industry.
“Rob will help drive client adoption and evolution of our performance and recognition solutions through strategic selling and consulting with our Fortune 1000 clients and sales organization,” says Robbins. “He will work to continually improve and design innovative technology and strategic solutions in order to maintain and grow our leadership position.”

He has also acted as the vice president of strategic accounts for Altour Incentive Management now Incentec, a leading provider of online incentive software and program management services.
“My goal is to become a trusted advisor to clients that want to leverage my experience with increasing workplace productivity.
