Bob Armbrister

President & CEO at SPARK Business Works

The entrepreneur next door. Bob launched his first startup right before the 2008 crash– it failed of course. But then he turned around and scaled an iPad app built for $1,800 to 3M downloads. 

Since then, Bob has continued to deliver the same ‘practical innovation’ and ROI to hundreds of clients– even in the most unlikely places. Construction job sites. Manufacturing plant floors. Pet cremation services. Wait, what?

You are going to love to geek out with Bob’s contrarian views of what digital transformation ACTUALLY looks like in high-growth companies– whether they’re your local business or a national leader.

Your audience can learn (and laugh) from his stories of serving clients, growing successful tech teams, or raising his 4 boys.

It’s real business leadership and real life… and there’s something in the water at Bob’s company, SPARK.
