Los Angeles native Robert Ross joined CurtCo as creative director in 1990, later helping relaunch Robb Report when CurtCo acquired the magazine in 2001. With a lifelong love for old cars and an enthusiasm for new ones, he also assumed responsibility for the magazine’s automotive content until he began presiding over another CurtCo title, Art & Antiques, from 2007 to 2010. Since 2010 he has been Robb Report’s automotive consultant. His collecting passions include Old Master prints, Oceanic art, and, of course, autos and motorcycles. The cars and bikes that he owns are as much a part of the family as are his many decades-long friends at Robb Report.
