Rock House Advisors announces major expansion

By Rock House Advisors | February 22, 2019

Rock House Advisors, the business consulting firm founded by Joe Jobe—former longtime CEO of the National Biodiesel Board—is expanding. Mike Marsch has joined Rock House as senior vice president to further strengthen its leadership team. Marsch is a skilled senior management consultant with 25 years of experience in the corporate world. His background includes the electric utility industry, association management, government relations, marketing, conference planning, youth leadership programs, public speaking, and training and development courses. 

Marsch will help lead an expanded national and international network of strategic partners who serve as Rock House Associates. This network of experts collaborates on projects to expand the scope of business services and the level of expertise to Rock House clients in North America and globally.

“We are thrilled to be adding Mike as the new senior vice president of Rock House Advisors,” said Jobe. “Mike has a unique set of skills that will compliment and expand the company’s already broad range of services.”

Marsch has decades of experience in the electric utility industry, which will round out Rock House’s focus on the energy, transportation and technology sectors. The company expansion brings with it an expansion of the company’s client base, which includes renewable fuel clients, petroleum refiners, electric utilities, agricultural commodity groups, private equity funds and autonomous technology companies.

This new corporate alliance is not the first collaboration between Jobe and Marsch. This year marks the 45th year of successful collaborations between the two. They met on Aug. 22, 1974, on their first day of kindergarten and have been friends ever since. This friendship began in their small hometown of Russellville, Missouri, home of Rock House Bridge—the namesake of the company they now lead.

“That rugged old bridge is the perfect metaphor for the kind of company that Joe has built and I am now helping him grow,” Marsch said. “It represents many things, including our steel determination to help our clients bridge their gap to success.”
