Prof. Rob Pearl was born in Cape Town in 1951 and matriculated at Pinelands High School. He obtained his professional qualifications at the University of Cape Town and has been employed in the consulting sector of the quantity surveying profession since 1969

He has actively served the profession on many committees since 1975 and has been an elected member of the South African Council for the Quantity Surveying Profession for 2 terms of office. Rob is a past President of the Association of South African Quantity Surveyors. He has also been active in community affairs and is a past chairman of a prominent welfare organisation

He was employed as a senior lecturer at the University of Cape Town from 1986 to 1994, when he was appointed as Professor of Quantity Surveying at the University of Kwa Zulu Natal (UKZN). He took early retirement from UKZN at end-2008 and was appointed Professor Emeritus at that time. He remains active in academic circles.
