Bob Berry, Vice President of Business Development

Bob began his career with Troxell in 1998 and, after six months, he relocated to Seattle. There, his deliberate and pragmatic sales approach landed him among the company’s top producers for nearly 10 years and, in 2007, he set a company record with more than $10M in sales.

After returning to Phoenix, Bob proved, once again, that he consistently seeks and accepts new challenges when he was asked to manage much of the western U.S. region. In 2012, he answered the call yet again when he agreed to oversee Troxell’s national sales and marketing efforts and serve as co-president.

His vast experience in numerous Troxell sales positions—along with his ability to generate high profile partnerships and his excellent communication skills—made him a perfect match for VP of Business Development, a role he took on in 2013. In this invaluable role, Bob can better focus on driving emerging education technologies, including device-assisted learning and 1:1 devices. Bob graduated with a Broadcast Sales/Management degree from Arizona State University. .
