A veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, Rob founded BLOKWORX in 2006 to further his passion for creating fast, secure networks. Since 1999 Rob was a core technical contributor and presenter on an Advanced IP Team, delivering bleeding edge WAN and Managed Security services to Small, Mid-level and Fortune 500 businesses around the world. The experience led him back to the same conclusion, regardless of size and resources, every company struggled with the same uncertainty – multiple vendors with infinite solutions, and no real clarity on how to make it all “work.” Rob focused BLOKWORX on security, reliability, and positive user experience. He has built a team that leverages their expertise with extensive research and testing, alignment with vendors, partners, and clients, and the experience of thousands of nodes managed and monitored, all supported by a mature delivery model built on years of operational experience. Rob is an avid outdoorsman and his favorite place to be is in a raft or a kayak with his son Jack.
