As a renowned authority on enterprise software and cloud computing in the risk management and insurance industry, Bob has spent over 25 years building industry-leading companies. This current role marks the third time in Bob Morrell’s career that he’s been at the helm of an Atlanta software startup. His previous two companies, Riskonnect and Risk Laboratories, were successfully acquired by private equity firms Thoma Bravo and Symphony Technology Group, respectively.
After selling Riskonnect in 2017, Bob focused on helping other Atlanta-based startups. He is currently a board advisor to Riskonnect, a board member of Citiri, an advisor to Parmonic, and a mentor to numerous other companies. Upon meeting the founder of FortifyData, Victor Gamra, Bob understood the position FortifyData plays in the cybersecurity space, and decided to come on board.
Bob says, “What excites me most about FortifyData is the opportunity and ability we have to protect companies from their biggest risk: cyber crime. The connections to my risk management roots is obvious. Ultimately, companies are looking for a platform that provides a clear line of sight to their cyber risk exposure with an integrated, holistic solution, and that’s what we provide.”
Bob is a graduate of Georgia Tech and is considered a pioneer in the enterprise risk technology sector, having twice won the Risk & Insurance magazine Innovators award. He is passionate about building collaborative, winning cultures where the customer is always the top priority.
