About Rob

Lots and lots of startup, early stage and turnaround experience. Excerpt from my bio-

As a proven business-builder, board member, and senior executive, Rob is highly regarded for his ability to "see the chessboard" and understand how to position/structure technology companies properly to achieve their maximum potential in today's competitive landscape. Whether the challenge involves helping companies raise critical growth capital, recruit top board members, optimize their product portfolio, or build partnerships with top global customers, Rob has consistently demonstrated the ability to lead the charge and get the job done.

To date, he has held senior leadership roles up to the CEO level in seven different organizations within the software, telecommunications, and digital media sectors—ranging from Fortune 500 firms to numerous startups and mid-tier growth companies. In each role, he has been an instrumental force in building the winning teams, cultures, and products that have led to breakthrough market success both in terms of market share, as well as the realization of compelling shareholder returns and highly profitable exit opportunities.

Most recently, as CEO of Abacast, Rob led a comprehensive turnaround effort that successfully positioned the company for acquisition by WideOrbit in 2014—leading to his subsequent appointment as VP of Streaming for the combined 600-employee organization. Prior to this role, he served as SVP of Business Development and Strategy at Nine Systems, a content development network acquired by Akamai Technologies (NASDAQ:AKAM) and as SVP of Business Development for Imagine Communications, during which time he was presented with the "Streaming Media All-Star Award" by Streaming Media magazine.
