Rob Reali is an experienced leader in the areas of operations, sales and marketing for emerging technology companies. Reali specializes in early-stage companies and possesses a track record of working hands-on with innovators and founders to raise funds, build teams and to bring products to market. Most recently, Reali led TrueVision Systems as its co-founder and COO from its beginnings as a start-up. He forged the team from two employees, brought in capital, and was instrumental in the company’s expansion to sustain multimillion-dollar growth, strategic spin out and successful exit of the parent company. Prior to TrueVision, he was an investor and business development executive for Advanced Propulsion Technologies (APT) where his contributions led to an exclusive IP license opportunity with Bill Gates and Vinod Kholsa to create and fund a new company based on APT patents. While at the University of California, Santa Barbara he co-founded a software company and executed an IPO early on that catapulted the company to become an internet infrastructure firm for twenty years. Notably, the company created a real-time, auction-based, neutral exchange for buying and selling online advertising that was acquired by Microsoft.
