Board of Directors

Since its inception in 1998, the Roanoke – Blacksburg Technology Council has sought to educate, inform, grow and unite the region’s growing technology community. We seek to better the technology industry by actively connecting and enabling the community, by supporting our region’s technology companies and by actively pursuing positive changes in our community. To accomplish these goals, the RBTC board of directors and advisors guide the organization towards the fulfillment of its mission. With the support and guidance of these individuals, the RBTC is the primary catalyst for connecting, growing and leading our technology community.
