Meet A Minnesota CTO: Bob Grogan, eLumen

The CTO: Bob Grogan, eLumen

How long have you been working in technology for and what is your technical background?

I was raised around kit computers, electronics and oscilloscopes.  Earlier on, I went to school for engineering at Northwestern in Chicago, and fell into the computer industry shortly after graduating. I’ve been working in the computer field in one capacity or another for 20+ years.

I was with Plato Learning (now called Edmentum) for over eight years. Working in education technology is a special place where business, technology and mission all meet. So when I had the chance to join eLumen, just around two years ago, I couldn’t turn that down.
