A founding member of Aretec, Roby oversees the technical vision for the company. He stays attuned to the needs of the data science and cybersecurity industry and works to ensure that the company’s capabilities meet or exceed those needs. He is also responsible for managing the company’s channel and partner alliances, and for making sure that current and future work aligns with the company’s successful strategic plan.
Roby earned his Bachelor of Science degree in management information systems from the University of Rhode Island (URI) in 2004. Prior to, and during his time at URI, he was enlisted with the U.S. Army Reserves and assisted a combat support hospital in Massachusetts. His work experience during college and thereafter began as a data security analyst and quickly evolved into data security management and technical director roles, preparing him for success with Aretec.
In 2017, Roby was the recipient of the Washington SmartCEO Executive Management Award for his work on a strategic plan to develop Big Data software solutions with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). That plan, which was in place for only seven months, resulted in Aretec being awarded a five-year blanket purchase agreement. Prior to that award, he was a Finalist for the GovStar Emerging Star Performer award in 2016.
Roby is happily married and is a proud father of two sons and one Bernedoodle. He and his family enjoy spending time with extended family in the Reno/Tahoe area, even though his in-laws tease him mercilessly about his misplaced loyalty to the New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox.
