He's worked in software and built teams for more than 20 years, including founding Cozi Inc., where he served as CEO from its inception until it was acquired by Time Inc. in 2014. Under Robbie’s leadership, Cozi became the number one brand in the family technology category, with more than 14 million family members in 150 countries.

He spent the first 12 years of his career at Microsoft, where he led projects that included Microsoft Money, a program he ushered to profitability. Robbie holds a BA in science and engineering from Princeton University. He lives on Mercer Island with his wife, three children and their standard poodle Gingi.

His volunteer passions include Friendship Circle, a service organization that pairs children living with mental and physical challenges with typically developing teenagers.

Her career includes serving as CFO for VoloMetrix, Visible Technologies and Likewise Software, and she has held other senior positions for startup and enterprise businesses, including helping guide various groups at McCaw Cellular and its eventual acquisition by AT&T.

Laurie's an ardent Husky fan, and loves tracking her 10,000 steps daily via her Fitbit. Other faves: her young adult kids, her yellow Labrador, sports and sun - not necessarily in that order. Laurie received her master's degree from Golden Gate University and a BA in business administration from the University of Washington.


Mike Willingham

Vice President of Regulatory and Quality

Mike likes knowing how things work. He also likes knowing how to make those things work really well. He joined 98point6 in 2016 following more than 20 years of career focus on medical device and healthcare software safety, along with security, quality and regulatory compliance.

Mike and his wife live in Bellevue, where they raised five sons. As empty nesters, they now love traveling, especially to Europe and tropical locales.


Rob Schwietzer

Chief Product Officer

Rob brings more than 20 years of leadership experience in product development, design, customer support and operations to 98point6. He's previously worked at global companies such as Groupon, Amazon, where he led the Amazon Prime program, and McKinsey & Company. He’s also served as chief operating officer of MedBridge.

For much of his youth, Rob tried to ignore the possibility of a career in computing - despite writing a Tapper knock-off on a TI-99/4a in fifth grade. Luckily for 98point6, he got with the program and earned a bachelor's degree in computer and electrical engineering from UCLA, followed by an MBA from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Rob is also 98point6's resident soccer nerd - both he and his wife play several times a week. When they're not on the field, they're coaching the game; both their daughters play soccer. And when they're not playing or coaching soccer, they're watching it, thanks to their season tickets to the Sounders.
