Rob Caldwell, Founder and CEO
Born in Charlotte, North Carolina, Rob spent much of his youth with his mechanically and electrically inclined father. Rob’s interest in electronics led him to DeVry University in Atlanta, where he received a bachelor’s degree in Electronics Engineering. After working as Chief Engineer with Communications Concepts Inc. and Rockwell Collins at NASA’s Space Shuttle Logistics Depot, Rob attended Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and received his master’s degree in Technical Management.
Rob’s passion for TV led him to the Golf Channel, where he worked as the Director of Engineering and Operations, responsible for managing transmission operations, project engineering, maintenance engineering, master control and facilities. Rob also worked in 3D graphics/animation, training, and interactivity producing projects for the Golf Channel, Seagram’s, and Hilton Corp. In 2001, Rob was approached to assist a start-up government contractor with proposal efforts, specifically computer-based training.
In 2002, Rob founded Obor Digital. Over the past 12 years, Rob expanded the company to provide training and products, including Zeus, which remains a leader in the U.S., with customers such as NBC, Discovery Networks, QVC, and many more. In 2008, Obor began providing Zeus solutions to the U.S. military to manage communications equipment, which led to requests for Zeus operators, as well as additional positions to include logisticians, trainers and field support personnel.
