People say nice things about what I do.
Robert joined the Rotageek team as interim CTO following a referral from a colleague. One of the first things that became clear was that Robert is focused on delivering value. He is very structured and methodical in his approach, which results in a high level of transparency and great execution. On top of getting things done, Robert has high EQ which allowed him to rapidly gain the respect of the Rotageek team, at all levels, and to use this to ensure that change was implemented quickly and sustainably. And, being well known and well respected in his field, Robert was able to reach out to his network to bring in additional skills that we needed to navigate this period in our business. Despite stepping back as interim CTO, Robert continues to support members of our team – helping to enhance efficiency and effectiveness. If you have the chance to work with Robert, take it. He will deliver value and will leave a lasting impact on your business.Chris McCullough, CEO, Rotageek
“Robert is amazing at getting teams to make things happen in the real world. His approach allows both groups and individuals to gain a tremendous sense of creative productivity and foster new ways of true teamwork and collaboration – with equal measures of innovation, effectiveness, and fun. He makes sure that everyone is on the same page and focused on the main goal. His assistance definitely made a huge impact on our success. Robert is simply outstanding!”-Scott Joslin, Senior Vice President, International Data Strategy, WarnerMedia
Robert worked with IIED over a period of several months to help us develop a new IT strategy and select a new provider to support its implementation. He devised and ran a series of workshops to engage with a wide range of staff from across the organisation, listening to their feedback about the current systems, infrastructure and service, and combined this with their aspirations into a practical strategy that was signed off by the management team. We were able to use this to prioritise services in re-tendering the IT function, and to feed into next year’s budgeting process. Feedback from colleagues about working with Robert was unanimously positive: his ability to translate tech into ‘normal speak’, empathetic communication style and shared values were welcomed by all. “Can he join us as our IT Director?” was asked multiple times, and we’d have no hesitation in working with Robert again.-Deborah Harris, COO, IIED
“Robert always put my needs first in how we ran the sessions so that I got the most value out of each one. He was also willing to listen to me in some vulnerable moments when I was having a tough time without being judgmental, and providing solutions/ideas in the system that had immediate positive effects.”-Cory McGowan, COO, Canyons
“Robert has been and is an absolute delight to work with. He has huge integrity in everything he does. … Robert is intelligent, articulate, trustworthy, reliable and has a very positive influence on the company culture. His skills as a CTO are second-to-none.”Lucian Tarnowski, CEO, BraveNewTalent
“Robert has developed into one of our most strategic and critical senior management resources, combining a deep expertise in the digital/on-line/e-commerce world with an understanding and energetic contribution to the core strategic direction of our company.”-David Allen, Chairman & CEO, David Allen Co.
“Our company has benefited tremendously from his creative thinking and overall professionalism. His technical knowledge and work ethic helped us achieve goals that might otherwise be difficult to initiate and accomplish without the benefit of his expertise. … Mr. Peake possesses a level of determination, commitment and enthusiasm that serves as a compliment to his profession. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.”-Rob Caulfield, CEO, TrustCommerce
