If Rob knew I was writing this blog, he might object. But there are times when one must take initiative, defy one's boss in the name of the greater good, and ask for forgiveness at some unforeseen time in the future that may or may not occur.

Further Affiant Sayeth Naught.

This past week, the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) held its 2017 UTS Alumni Awards. ServiceRocket founder and CEO, Rob Castaneda, won two alumni awards: the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) Award For Excellence AND the UTS Chancellor's Award for Excellence. 

Among the many reasons Rob earn these two awards, UTS Chancellor Catherine Livingstone AO praised Rob for his outstanding achievements and success of his company ServiceRocket, as well as for his commitment to mentoring young entrepreneurs, UTS students in Sydney, and ServiceRocket employees around the world. And of course, Rob graduated from UTS in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science degree in computing science. So he is, in fact, a UTS alumnus. 

I elect myself to speak on behalf of all ServiceRocket employees, who we affectionately call Rocketeers, when I say that we are proud of Rob's achievement in earning these two awards, and that we have regularly seen examples of Rob mentoring young entrepreneurs, Rocketeers, students, and even mentoring our younger generations in youth sports. 

We echo the words of  UTS Chancellor Catherine Livingstone.

Here is the video of Rob accepting the first award.
