CEO, Chairman, and co-founder of DMVApp
DMVApp Inc. is a growing startup with motivated founders who have a history of innovating DMV services. The team is led by Bob Rieger: CEO, Chairman, and co-founder. Bob brings 40 years of experience in the tech industry with an impressive history of engineering, software development, finance, and executive management in startups and Fortune 500 companies.
An avid automobile collector and racecar driver, Bob personally understood the frustrations one might face as a customer of the California DMV. As an entrepreneur, Rieger recognized the opportunity to significantly improve the vehicle registration process. In 2008 Bob founded AVRS Inc.—a First Line Service Provider (FLSP) for car dealerships, insurance companies, and other client-oriented services that interact with the DMV. As CEO and Chairman, he assembled a talented team to implement his vision of a top-of-the-line product coupled with renowned customer service. Under his leadership, AVRS grew astronomically from a fringe startup to a dominant player in the market that captured 50% of the existing DMV Second Line Business Partners (SLBP). In 2015 Bob sold AVRS to CVR, a partnership of CDK Global and Reynolds & Reynolds.
Prior to AVRS, Bob founded NETCOM Online Communication Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: NETC), a garage-based operation in Silicon Valley that went on to be the first commercial Internet Service Provider growing it to $150MM in annual revenue within six years. The experience of growing a 1-man operation into a publicly traded company confirmed Bob’s belief that if you put customer service first, provide a user-friendly interface, and focus on scalability and reliability, then the masses will follow.
AVRS and NETC were both the results of Rieger’s ability recognize a problem, visualize a solution, communicate that vision, and then lead a hand-picked talented team to success. Bob continues to innovate and collaborate with his dedicated team on new ventures, including DMVApp.
