Bob Waltenspiel

IT sales guy, co-founder IT in the D, podcast host, TEDx Speaker, former 40 under 40


My career has spanned close to 20 years in which I have worked for tech giants NTT, NEC, HP, Dell, and Cisco Systems. I have managed a territory, built and managed a channel and sold directly to end-users. I have sold to every vertical from Enterprise to mid-market to SLED. I am a consistent quota-over achiever and have won numerous achievement awards.


On a personal note, I am the the co-founder of 'IT in the D', a networking organization which boasts over 7,000 members in the IT industry, produces a weekly podcast which is listened to by over 300,000 people weekly, and authors of the award-winning blog series titled 'Don't be that guy'. In doing so have helped over 2,500 people find jobs and another 1,000 re-trained through our monthly events.

Bob is married with three beautiful daughters and resides in Auburn Hills, Michigan.
