While in Russia in 1999 Robert met some amazing artists creating handmade chess sets. To help sell these, he created his first eCommerce website. When orders began to come in from around the world, he realized this was a great opportunity to explore. Between 1999 and 2012 he built and developed several eCommerce and digital service companies. In 2012, he co-founded IronPlane, a full service Magento website development agency. Robert works with clients to find the right investment balance in technology to help maximize return on investment.
