Rob Perin, Co-founder, Oscobo
Rob is responsible for the commercial side of things at Oscobo. Prior to co-founding the company Rob was the senior commercial director at BlackBerry, responsible for 28 countries in Europe and more than €300 million in revenue. He was one of the first employees at BlackBerry in Europe in 2002, and was responsible for launching the company in Italy.
Rob has also held a number of senior business development roles both abroad and in the UK. This included a position at the start up Peoplelink, part of the internet incubator Idealab, which is where he first met Oscobo co-founder Fred Cornell.
He joined Oscobo as co-founder to pursue a more entrepreneurial career and has been responsible for developing Oscobo’s go to market strategy. When he isn’t following his passion to launch game-changing companies, Rob can be occasionally found driving sports cars through the hills of Umbria, where he once lived.
