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.

The CTO: Alicia Cermak, ArcStone

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

I’ve been working in technology professionally for nearly 15 years, and have been interested in computers for almost as long as I can remember. I got started when my dad brought home our family’s first computer (a Tandy 1000 HX) and gave me free rein on it, which led to web design as a hobby in my pre-teen years, web development and computer repair in my teens, and eventually a traditional computer science education.

Professionally, I’ve worked as both a developer and a systems administrator, which I find gives me something of a unique perspective.
