A Look at Robert Deignan’s Career Journey

Robert Deignan sits at the helm of ATS digital services as the co-founder and also the chief executive officer. However, like any other human being, Robert was not born a CEO. Instead, it has taken him decades of hard work and experience to build himself into the man that world sees today. Born in Florida, Fort Lauderdale to be precise, Robert Deignan began his journey to success at St. Thomas Aquinas High school. Later, he got the opportunity to pursue higher studies at Purdue University after he received a full football scholarship in 1992. He graduated with an organizational leadership degree in 1995, which he used as a stepping stone to becoming the great and innovative leader he is today.

Robert’s Career Growth

Soon after the completion of his studies, Robert worked at Miami Dolphins for a year before proceeding to NY Jets where he also worked for a year, before joining hands with a fellow entrepreneur to establish Fanlink Inc in 1998. That marked his first entrepreneurial venture, and since then, he has worked hard to propel himself to the top. It is through Fanlink that Robert first discovered his passion for technology, and what it can do. Unfortunately, the company did not stay afloat for long, and only two years after its inception, it was dissolved.

Fortunately, twelve months later, Robert secured the senior position of executive vice president at iS3. After close to a decade of successfully marking milestones at iS3, Robert was confident enough that he had what it takes to establish his firm. He said goodbye to the company in 2011, and co-founded inbound calls experts, and also established ATS digital Inc.

Today, under his belt, ATS is a digital company that helps myriads of consumers to solve technological hiccups which they might be experiencing. From connectivity to general troubleshooting issues, ATS digital has what it takes to solve them remotely, and simultaneously ensure that the computer of the client is kept safe and stable, thanks to Robert’s diligent leadership.

However, even though he is incredibly successful today, Robert still has a soft spot for sports. When he is not at ATS, you can find him on the shores where he is mostly found during his free time, and where he participates in offshore fish tournaments.

Talos CEO Tim Duncan Negotiates $2.5 Billion Merger Deal From His Mother’s Dining Table

It is unlikely that many grownups would decide to discuss job secrets in front of another person even if they are closely related. But nothing deters Talos Energy Chief Executive Officer Tim Duncan to discuss a high-profile deal from his mother’s dining table. On this, Tim later said, “I ensured that I made long calls each night to ensure that I am up to speed on what is happening on the deal.” The deal Tim was discussing later went through. He was negotiating how to acquire the ailing Stone Energy Corporation, which was at the brink of shutting down due to bankruptcy.

How Tim Got Himself in His Mother’s Dining

It was not Tim’s plan that he negotiates high-level deals from his mother’s dining. Circumstances had taken Tim Duncan’s whole family to stay with his mother for a few days in Texas’ higher apartment. A few days before Tim, his wife Christy, their six-old boy and their two dogs had fled their Kingwood, Texas apartment. Floods filled the streets of Kingwood, TX with water levels rising each day. Finally, roads were impassable and many homes stayed without power for several days. On the D-day, the Talos Energy CEO hoisted his wife, their son, and two dogs through the flooded streets. Fortunately, Mr. Duncan was able to order a private jet, which came to their rescue. But even before the jet arrived, the family had boarded a FEMA rescue boat from the flooded Kingwood, TX neighborhood.

The private took Tim and his family to Alabama. But the Alabama trip was short-lived. Remember, the family did not visit Alabama on holiday. The three had fled floods in their home. After staying in Alabama for a short while, Tim, Christy, their son, and 2 dogs flew back to Texas. This time the trip took the three and their two dogs to Patricia’s house. It is during their stay in Patricia’s house that Tim made several calls for long hours to finalize the Talos-Stone Energy merger.

Eventually, the deal went through and now Tim Duncan is the CEO of the rebranded Talo Energy, an oil company that has most of its assets based in the Gulf of Mexico. Talo collects $900 million in revenue each year.
