“When lightening struck at the farm and some of the most treasured assets were lost, it was clear I needed to help. I knew in my heart something above and beyond was needed to help with the recovery. So I started a Go Fund Me Page to support the work of Emerald M and the deserving children it serves.”
Bob’s commitment to serve on the board was born out of his love of children especially those who need some extra support. As a Veteran, an active member of his Church, St. Mark the Evangelist in New Tampa, and as a member and Past Faithful Navigator of the Knights of Columbus, all helped fuel his desire to contribute his considerable experience and expertise to help achieve the vision of Emerald M.
Bob has been involved in Information Technology since 1985. He has a wide range of experience from Sales to CEO. As an entrepreneur, Bob founded two software firms in the Tampa Bay area. PatienTree, was the
first ADA 508 compliant platform of its kind dedicated to in-patient care and entertainment services at the hospital bedside. The second, Technology Fusions, focused on automating field service business process.
Bob’s wife, Cynthia, also serves on the Emerald M Fund Raising and Event Committees. Both utilize their vast array of skills in the telecommuting workforce. Cynthia is a Regional Sales Director with Cathedral Corporation in Rome, NY. Bob is a Software Executive with Mi-Corporation in Durham, NC. Bob is a US Navy Veteran who server aboard the USS Independence CV-62 as a Machinist Mate and extremely proud of their son who is serving in the US Air Force. They also have two married daughters and are now officially, “empty nesters” –except for Sam, their German Short Haired Pointer.
