Our Co-Founder, Bob Anderson

Bob Anderson recently retired after a more than 40-year career in the Eastern Iowa financial services industry. Bob co-founded AFS with his son, Scott, in 1995 and helped lead the organization to continued growth. His example inspired the AFS values of Professionalism, Expertise, Vision, Strategy and Service that continue to guide the organization today. Perhaps his greatest pride was in building long-term relationships with AFS clients, and in delivering a strong commitment to “value-added service” – going the extra mile – that helped distinguish AFS from many other firms. A lifetime member of the prestigious Million Dollar Roundtable, Bob served as past president of several area service organizations, including the Cedar Rapids Association of Insurance & Financial Advisors, Eastern Iowa Society of Financial Service Professionals, and Cedar Rapids Area Estate Planning Council. An Eastern Iowa native, Bob was also very active in the local community, including holding leadership roles with the Marion YMCA Board of Managers, Linn Mar School Foundation Board of Trustees, St. Joseph Catholic Church Parish Council, and Marion Water Board of Trustees.
