Geek of the Week: Rob May

A few months ago we launched a feature called Geek of the Week. Every week, CloudWedge nominates a ‘Geek of the week’ to any cloud leader who has been in the news in the last week that we feel deserves special mention or praise.

We are happy to announce this weeks’ Geek of the Week is Rob May, CEO and Co-Founder of Backupify. This week we wrote about Backupify’s exceptional growth of 250% in Q1. We have decided to give Rob this honor as in his role as CEO, he is the chief strategist for Backupify.

Rob graduated from the University of Kentucky, getting both his a BS in electrical engineering and an MBA there. He then worked as an engineer at Harris Corporation, thereafter he worked for various start-ups in a number of different management and business development positions. These included consultant at Humana, business development at Stonestreet One, and editor in chief of Vupal. He co-founded Backupify in 2008.

Rob is often found presenting at tech conferences including, Cloud Expo, the Cloud Innovation Showcase Capital Network’s UpStart Roundtable, and MIT’s CIO Symposium.
