FUN FACTS ABOUT ROB KETTERSON

  • Rob Ketterson tried his hand at surfing early on. However, just as his surfing skills should have been peaking, his family moved to Arizona – so he decided to focus his energies on a landlocked sport, like golf. 
  • He ended up obtaining a college scholarship for golf. Although, according to him, it was a good thing he studied because a golf career surely wouldn’t have worked out so well. 
  • Rob got his first taste of technology working in marketing at an early stage Silicon Valley-based semiconductor company called VLSI Technology.  He eventually became a product manager for PC products for VLSI, which enabled him to experience what it was like to sell complex solutions to customers like Apple and IBM.
