Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) April 04, 2013
CoralBridge, a boutique consulting firm that helps clients leverage leadership, organizational culture and constructive conflict management to improve performance, has announced that Robert A. Creo, internationally recognized mediator and arbitrator and co-founder of both the International Academy of Mediators and Mediators Beyond Borders, is now affiliated with CoralBridge.
The CoralBridge Conflict Transformation Institute (CTI) was established to offer a full array of conflict management and dispute resolution services including training, alternative dispute system design and mediation. “We are excited by the tremendous value that Bob brings to our clients. His impeccable credentials, vast experience, and unquestioned stature in the dispute resolution field serve to further distinguish CoralBridge as an emerging leader in the industry,” said David Doto, CTI Director and Principal. “Bob’s experience, spanning over 30 years, and particularly his work in training business people and lawyers in the areas of Mediation Advocacy and Decision-Making perfectly complement our other services and further our mission to fulfill a unique niche.”
Creo has served as a mediator and arbitrator for over 5,000 days since 1979. Although he has mediated and arbitrated cases in almost every area of the law, he has extensive experience resolving death and catastrophic loss claims, medical malpractice, complex commercial and real estate transactions, construction disputes, and employment issues. Creo is particularly adept at mediating cases with an extremely large numbers of parties, having successfully mediated cases with over 40 defendants. He has also worked with the Senate Select Committee on Ethics, Office of Fair Employment Practices, as well as a salary arbitrator for Major League Baseball and a grievance arbitrator for the National Football League.
Creo has spent much of his career developing and teaching mediators, arbitrators and lawyers. He has taught credit courses at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, Duquesne University School of Law and Penn State. He has published extensively and currently writes a monthly column for the International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (CPR) monthly newsletter, Alternatives, under the byline “Master Mediator”. He co-created the Master Mediators Institute, which, in conjunction with well known professors in neuroscience, psychology and economics developed mediation immersion courses at Duke and UCLA which were attended by some of the most respected and recognized mediators in the country. His international work has included presentations and trainings in England, Serbia, Italy, Poland, Ukraine, including being a Fulbright Scholar for the United States State Department.
