Website

Bob Marshall co-founded AWS Convergence Technologies, owner and operator of the WeatherBug brand, in 1993 and currently serves as company President and CEO. Marshall pioneered the networking of weather instrumentation and cameras using the Internet-parlaying this capability into the single, largest network of weather stations and Internet cameras and one of the largest private weather companies in the world.

Under Marshall’s leadership, WeatherBug formed a strategic public/private partnership with NOAA’s National Weather Service, whereby the federal government relies on WeatherBug data for mission critical severe weather alerting and homeland security response. WeatherBug’s professional solutions are also relied upon by more than 100 state and local government agencies, energy traders, electric utilities, schools, broadcast media partners and businesses. Additionally, WeatherBug is a leading digital media property as the number one provider of weather on mobile phones across all US carriers and a top four news and information site on the Web with more than 16 million monthly unique users, as reported by comScore Media Metrix – November 2007.

Prior to launching AWS, Marshall served as a program manager and lead engineer at BBN (formerly Bolt, Beranek and Newman, the company credited with starting the Internet) on a number of advanced military sensor, signal processing and networking programs.

Marshall is a cum laude graduate of the University of Maryland, College of Engineering.
