Rob Daly, an acknowledged expert in object technology, has over 22 years of experience in applied software engineering and in building companies that serve clients by using software in new ways to solve hard problems and support breakthroughs. Rob co-founded 5AM in 2003. As former CEO of 5am, he – with no external investment — guided 5AM to grow into a 50+-person company enjoying growth rates of as high as 296% over a three year period and regularly being listed as one of the 50 Best Places to Work in Washington. In co-founding 5AM, Rob sold his majority interest in Number Six Software, Inc., a software engineering firm he co-founded in 1994.
