In 1995, Robert Maynard and his friend founded Internet America, which became Texas’ largest Internet Service Provider (ISP) when the company went public in 1998. He created and developed Internet America’s corporate brand and developed the infamous 800 Be A Geek campaign.
In 2001, Robert was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which caused him to lose his Internet fortune, divorce his wife, and end up on public assistance.
In 2005, Robert Maynard co-Founded Lifelock with Todd Davis. It all started in Robert’s bedroom as he developed the company’s strategy, product, initial systems, marketing, and advertising campaigns. Robert implemented LifeLock’s “My Social Security Number is” campaign as a marketing strategy that attracted more than a million and a half customers and helped raise over $240 million in capital.
Robert Maynard was associated with a scandal at LifeLock that revolved around the entire basis of the foundation of the company. The bad press and publicity caused Robert to resign from LifeLock. Doctors later found out that Robert had gone through bipolar mania induced by Electronic Convulsive Therapy (ECT), giving him no recollection of the alleged incident.
Today, Robert Maynard is running the company iValidate that he founded in 2011. iValidate is the worlds first consumer-direct credit bureau, and the company is soon to launch its flagship product.
Between Robert’s own projects, he consults to companies, typically startups and consumer marketing companies concerning their product development, implementation, and marketing strategy.
