President of Allegion Ventures & Allegion Futurist

Rob is a unique tech visionary who has in-the-trench experience as an entrepreneur and a corporate investor. He’s been in your shoes, and understands that it’s not enough to have a brilliant idea or create a viable concept – you have to make tech understandable to people who don’t normally think about it, and have the relationships, tenacity and talent to scale a business, go public, or sell it. Rob was recently named one of the top influencers who will lead the IoT and someone you want to follow on social.
