Rob Kerr

Managing Director

I'm a veteran software engineer bringing over 25 years consulting experience with Fortune 1000 enterprises and early-stage technology companies. Over the course of my career I've delivered successful results for many recognizable brands, including Ford, DuPont, Whirlpool, Yum Brands, Stryker—and many others.

I'm fortunate to have been a part of the software industry as the nexus of business and consumer computing has transitioned from centralized (mainframe) systems through subsequent waves of PC, Web, Cloud and Mobile platforms.

My first mobile experience was developing software for PalmOS in the late 1990s (The Palm Pilot's OS), and I've worked with every mobile platform since then to deliver innovation and efficiencies to business clients. Today mobile devices are more powerful and more connected than ever before, and the opportunity to achieve business-changing results has never been greater.

I founded Cuvenx Inc. to help business clients fully leverage the innovative and business-changing opportunities enabled by the global adoption of mobile devices. Mobile has become a default end-user computing platform, and our mobile-first approach delivers no-compromise mobile device solutions to users with high expectations.

Skills & Experience

I started programming as a teenager using a Commodore 64, and subsequently became a software engineer by training—studying computer science, finance and business administration. I'm a proud graduate of Western Michigan University (Go Broncos!).

I've spent the last 25 years building and managing software projects for enterprise and midsize companies in healthcare, manufacturing and financial services industries. In addition to hands-on technical roles, I've served as an IT manager, CTO, Solution Architect and Microsoft Pre-Sales Virtual Technical Specialist.

Currently, I'm a practicing software architect, advisory consultant and senior-level developer. I play an active senior technical role in client engagements, leading hybrid client/consultant teams through business requirements, design, development and deployment phases for cloud-connected mobile software projects.
