Rob Plotkin, MSW, LSW is the franchise owner of Social Work p.r.n. – Philadelphia. Rob was awarded Social Work p.r.n.‘s first franchise system in 1997. His territory covers the Greater Philadelphia Metropolitan area stretching into parts of Delaware and New Jersey.
Rob believes that owning a social work business fits wonderfully for him. “I´ve discovered that I´m using more of my clinical skills now,” he states, “than when I was in direct practice.” Part of Rob´s intrigue in owning a franchise system, was to meld his entrepreneurial spirit with his professional social work values. “Those values provide the structure” he notes, “and without the structure, business decisions could be made that are incompatible with what I see would be a good corporate citizen.” Rob cites that Social Work p.r.n. has a reputation in Philadelphia, as an agency that can be counted on to provide quality professional social work services.
Rob graduated with a MSW from Temple University´s School of Social Work Administration and with a MBA from Drexel University´s Executive MBA program. Rob keeps busy working on the on-going development of the Philadelphia system. He has a large job, both building relationships with social workers and settings in the area. Rob territory includes Bucks, Philadelphia, Chester, Montgomery and Delaware in Pennsylvania; Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, Mercer and Salem in New Jersey; and New Castle county in Delaware.
