Bob taught me the value of building relationships -- he's an business development mastermind and a thoughtful manager to boot. Bob thinks de ... eply about markets and has a knack for incredibly strategic thinking, especially when it's not obvious that the situation requires it. Startups die when they run out of money, but Bob is a gifted sales engineer who can scale a team to prevent such an incident.

If I was starting a tech company my first business hire would be Bob Greenlees. Based on current experience working together he: Has the ... Business Operations stuff covered: We were up and running, with comprehensive business systems, immediately. Understands tech value propositions, pricing & positioning: Our products are positioned well and our user base has grown quickly and profitability. Can negotiate deals: We rely on Bob to write our contracts as well as review and negotiate contracts with our clients - without Bob’s legal skills our external lawyer bills would be 10x. Opens doors and closes deals: Bob gets the intros other’s can’t and has closed deals with some of the world’s largest companies as clients as well as with other tech company partners. Manages relationships: Getting large contracts is a first step - Bob has lead many of our largest multi-year, multimillion dollar client relationships and has helped position us from a vendor to a trusted advisor. Pumps out content: Bob produces persuasive marketing assets (both written and visual language) on his own without the need for a marketer, content writer or editor on our team. His eye for visual & user experience design has helped us close deals while simply presenting mock ups and wireframes to clients. Understands product development: Bob has been able to inspire development teams to build both consumer and business products that people love. Is a hustler: We have worked many nights and weekends together (on all of the above) to build our company from inception to profitability. Is trustworthy: Bob’s empathy, respect, genuine listening and commitment to cooperate has helped us create an open and honest communication culture and a high-performing team. Gives back: Bob is selfless - I witnessed this first hand in our early days when I was trained directly by Bob as well as during our company’s growth where Bob has pitched in to help onboard, train and develop others on our team. He also gives back to the community as a Techstars Mentor and Startup Institute Instructor.
