Bob originally conceived of, created, and financed RunSignUp. He has had a long career in technology, and in 1994 began focusing on Internet middleware-the stuff that makes website work-at companies like Blue-stone (IPO in 1999 and acquired by HP in 2000), JBoss (acquired by Red Hat in 2006), and various other companies.
A runner since high school, Bob ran competitively through his years at Bucknell University, and returned to his running roots in 2003 when he began to volunteer as an Assistant Coach for the Moorestown High School Track and Cross Country Teams. In 2006 he opened the Moorestown Running Company with Dave Welsh and Joe Halin. Additionally, Bob helps direct several charity races in the area, and helped create a home Cross Country course for the Moorestown High School by building a system of wood chip trails.
Bob first conceptualized RunSignUp in 2006 while busy with other ventures. In 2009, he brought on Stephen Sigwart to help develop the site, and Bob has spent the last few years building the RunSignUp team and technology to meet the needs of the running community.

After working in the running industry for the last 5 years, he is most excited by RunSignUp's ability to be responsive to the needs of our customers, and believes it should be an obvious choice when race directors get a chance to see all the tools designed for them.
Frank is still an athlete, completing a number of triathlons (sprint distance to half-iron distance), and he enjoys running 5K's with his two daughters... who are already avid runners.

In 2013, he completed his first Full Distance Ironman.
While he has a hard time picking one feature of RunSignUp that he is most excited about, Brian loves that it is very nimble and responsive to customer needs, and that it continues to push out cutting edge technology to make the client and participant experiences better. He believes it truly is the "best overall solution" in the industry.

Running also keeps him in shape for his favorite extracurriculars like Ultimate Frisbee and Dodgeball.

Personally, Natalie is most excited about the integration RunSignUp has with RunScore & Race Director, since she knows how much they can simplify a Timer's life. As a former Event Director, she also loves the valuable insight into participant behavior that can be found with the the custom analytics built directly into the RunSignUp platform.
