Robert Swanson

Co-founder and Senior Partner

Rob hits the gym and plays competitive sports to burn calories, then refuels through a healthy appreciation for craft beers. It’s a balanced approach. But when it comes to software, forget about balance. He wants to help you blow your users’ socks off.

Our partners are essential to CNX's success. Although CNX has the technology customers need, in many cases potential customers are skeptical of solutions like Valence unless endorsed by those they trust.  It's our partners that have those established personal relationships necessary for customers to confidently bring Valence into their organizations.
