Founders Talk: Bob Carilli – A Builder of Humans + Things

January 14 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Bob Carilli is an entrepreneur and digital transformation strategist who has been at the forefront of industry firsts. Bob is a pioneer in developing processes using technology to do things more efficiently.

He began his career in 1996 working as a producer on AT&T’s Summer Olympic Games Website. The initiative was the recipient of numerous awards, including two 1996 CASIE awards, a 1996 Mar.com award, and a 1997 ADDY Award.

Bob and his team built John Hancock’s first website, which included sophisticated financial planning tools that were among the first available. He helped launch shopIBM in 1998, worked on EarthCam’s New Years Eve 2000 Live from Times Square, and produced a number of World Wrestling Federation Streaming Media Productions, which were among the first live pay per view video events online.

Throughout his career, Bob has helped companies revolutionize themselves and increase revenue through digital transformation. In 1997, he worked on Travelocity and SABRE initiatives that were the beginning of the end for travel agents. He launched Alamo Car Rental’s first location kiosks in 1999. He conceptualized and produced new Safety and Alternative Fuel Website Sections for Kelley Blue Book.

When the dot-com bubble burst in 2000, Bob made the move to full time entrepreneurship. He spent a couple of years living in Ecuador building the GoEcuador.com team and business. Over the years Bob has fine tuned his ability to formulate and execute winning digital strategies and development plans.

Bob has been producing results for his family and others from the first chance he got when he was nine, working as a paperboy in the Orchard Hill Neighborhood in the Town of Greenburgh, New York. He is not the customer you are looking for so move along and do not try to sell him something.
