About Rob Hargrave
Rob Hargrave has been associated with Stouffville for over 50 years having grown up in north Markham in the community of Dickson Hill. He has lived in Ward 6 with his wife Debbie and sons Ryan, Sean and daughter Laura for more than 28 years. During this time, Rob has been involved with minor hockey, soccer, baseball and Beaver Scouts.
First elected to Council in 2003, Rob has made the concerns of constituents his number one priority. The biggest challenge he has seen during his time on Council is integrating development into a small town setting. Negotiations, patience and persistence have been his best qualities in dealing with the issues that have confronted the Town and its residents.
He has worked in sales management for more than 20 years for multi-national companies such as Labatt's, Robely International and World Kitchen (Corelle dinnerware). Rob currently heads a retail consulting company that advises manufactures who deal with national retailers in both Canada and the US.
In his spare time, Rob enjoys golf, curling and running. He is a regular Terry Fox run participant.
