20+ years experience
Bob grew up in Bloomington and Park Rapids, Minnesota until his studies took him to Concordia College and later to the University of Minnesota Duluth, where he studied Geography and Urban Planning. In 1992, Bob and his wife, Rebecca, became sole owners of the business previously known as St. Charles Kitchens by Contardo, and the business name was changed to Lindquist and Company, Kitchens and Baths.
With more than 25 years of experience in the kitchen and bath industry, Bob wears many hats at Lindquist and Company. He originally joined the company to oversee daily operations, but his attention to detail and management skills quickly launched him into a position as full-time project manager. As such, Bob ensures that every project is completed on schedule and with unsurpassed attention to detail. His vigilance in communicating with our clients, tradespeople and suppliers results in beautifully-executed design projects every time.
Bob has two grown children, Daniel and Katharine, and much of his free time revolves around family activities. He has a passion for sporting events and his recreational interests include golf and downhill and cross-country skiing. Bob is an active member of the Harbortown Rotary Club, having held several committee positions, and has served as a trustee, deacon, and teacher at his church. Bob also enjoys gardening, camping, hiking, and attending concerts and blues festivals with Rebecca.
