Meet Rob, a seasoned professional with a rich assortment of experience that spans over two and a half decades. Born and raised in Shelby County Kentucky, on a beef cattle farm in Bagdad, Kentucky, Rob started his illustrious career in the Commonwealth of Kentucky’s Office of Technology. For 25 years, he was the linchpin in managing a myriad of projects that propelled the state’s technological advancements forward. In 2007, Rob took a well-earned retirement, but his passion for technology couldn’t keep him away for long.

Reinvigorated, Rob dove back into the tech world, taking on various roles in sales and marketing that leveraged his deep understanding of the field. It was this renewed journey that led to a serendipitous partnership with Rick, and together, they founded Granitec in 2016. This venture was more than a business; it was a commitment to the public safety sector, a pledge to deliver simple, common sense solutions to seemingly complex challenges.

With the robust and reliable Panasonic Toughbooks at their disposal, Rob continues to turn potential into practice, ensuring that those on the front lines have the tools they need to succeed. Outside the office, Rob’s life is as rich and full-bodied as the bourbon he savors. He enjoys nothing more than sipping Kentucky’s finest with his beloved wife, Pam, and sharing his insights on a local bourbon podcast. A proud University of Kentucky graduate, Rob’s roots run deep in the Bluegrass State, just like the heritage of the spirit he so enjoys.

At Granitec, Rob’s legacy of leadership and his knack for navigating the nuances of technology continue to drive us toward a future where public safety and practical solutions go hand-in-hand.

Where technology meets trust, creating a full circle of value and reliability for our customers.
