President/CEO

I’m proud to call Kris-Tech “home,” and to contribute to our ever-growing family here. Though I grew up in the business, prior to joining the team full-time I worked in finance, got a Masters’ Degree in ancient history and languages, and taught high-school Latin (all perfect preparation for a career in wire!), and have competed in multiple Ironman triathlons. I’m fortunate to work with and support amazing people, and to help create an environment of collaboration, purpose, and fulfillment. My wife and two girls, reading and learning, fitness, and travel keep me fully engaged outside of work.

Vice President of Finance

Introducing our numbers ninja, Bob! 🕺🏼💼

When he’s not busy optimizing workbooks, attacking project proposals, and balancing the books as a stereotypical type-A Big 4 CPA, you’ll find him gliding across the Ultimate Frisbee field with as much grace as a retired superhero! 🦸‍♂️💨 But that’s not all—this guy has mastered the art of time management as the proud father of twin daughters with his wife, Andrea. 👧👧

In his “free” time, Bob can be found on the sidelines, coaching girls’ lacrosse with passion and dedication! 🥍Bob used to enjoy mowing his lawn, but has delegated that responsibility to an auto mower so he can spend time painting lacrosse fields for the team. He’s the guy you want on your team when you need to streamline operations and turn chaos into organized bliss! 📈📊

Between perfecting his pickleball drop shot and revolutionizing office efficiency, Bob finds time to inspire and motivate others. With his infectious energy and ability to make even reviewing the financial statements seem like a dance party, Bob is always living the Kris-Tech way. 💃🎉

Prior to joining Kris-Tech, I  took the professional road less traveled by first receiving a PhD in ancient history and languages. After that stint, I then worked at a digital marketing agency. I’m thrilled to bring my passion for technology, marketing, and lifelong learning to Kris-Tech. Outside of work, I love spending time with my wife and 2 young sons, writing  articles, playing chess, surfing once in a blue moon, and discussing philosophy, history, and technology.
