Bob Marshall is Founder, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Earth Networks in Germantown, Maryland. Earth Networks operates the largest weather observation and lightning networks in the world. Leveraging that experience, the company is establishing a comprehensive global environmental data network, beginning with the deployment of instruments that measure greenhouse gases. In 1993, Mr. Marshall co-founded AWS Convergence Technologies, the company that would become Earth Networks, by pioneering the networking of weather sensors and cameras using the Internet. Since then, the company has fostered partnerships with NWS, NOAA, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and many other government entities. Earth Networks also owns and operates the WeatherBug brand of professional and consumer products and services. Prior to founding AWS and launching Earth Networks, Mr. Marshall served as a program manager and lead engineer at BBN, where he oversaw the development of several advanced military sensor, signal processing and networking programs. Mr. Marshall sits on the board of directors of the Maryland Business Roundtable for Education, a coalition of more than 100 leading employers that have made a long-term commitment to support education reform and improve student achievement in Maryland.
