Bob Dorf, who founded his own firm and then ran Dorf & Stanton with Alex Stanton, died Dec. 2. He was 74.
He began his communications career as a news writer on New York’s all-news station 1010 WINS radio. That led to the launch of Bob Dorf Communications and the partnership with Stanton.
Dorf continued as a publisher and consultant in the field of customer relationship management. He helped grow boutique shop 1to1 Marketing, and co-authored “The Startup Owner’s Manual.”
With his late wife, Fran, Dorf founded an early intervention program for young children with developmental disabilities, now JumpStart at the Stamford JCC, in memory of their son Mikey.
He served on the board of directors of Temple Sinai in Stamford and in 2020 traveled with Temple members to help build a school in Senegal with the non-profit group buildOn, which was dedicated to Fran.
