Born July 1, 1958, at St. Francis Hospital in Beech Grove, Bob Kortzendorf  was raised and has lived on the Southside of Indianapolis his whole life.

A 1976 Roncalli HS graduate, Bob started night school at the University of Indianapolis in 1980 prior to graduating in 1984 with a Business Administration degree.

Mr. Kortzendorf started working part-time for his father, Robert Kortzendorf and his uncle, George Kortzendorf, at Kortzendorf Machine & Tool Co., Inc., in the summer of 1973. 

Early responsibilities included cutting grass, sweeping floors, and general clean-up for the company until he graduated from Roncalli. After HS graduation, he started working full time, learning the trade. He worked in the shop, mostly as a boring mill machinist, for 17 years.
