Personal life

'He's a man of extreme intelligence and extreme vitality. Unusually he also has the ability to listen and he struck me as a decent human being. Vanni Treves, BBA chairman>
"Bob is dedicated and numerate and good at selecting and using people. He has learnt over the years to hold back against his natural impatience - he does like things to move." Sir Owen Green, former chairman of BTR>

Quarta has referred to management as "a calculated adventure". With reference to changing people, he has said "As well as identifying people who can help you push forward change, you are also trying to remove those who are so entrenched in the old culture that they are not going to change.">
