CEO of company to watch grateful for recognition

The leader of one of four Grand Junction companies to receive awards honoring fast-growing Colorado firms says he’s grateful for the recognition.

“Thank you to our customers, investors, team members, supporting cast of family members and our network of incredible work colleagues who have helped make this award a reality,” said Rob Eggebrecht, founder and chief executive officer of Cloudrise.

“Our goal for the community is to create opportunity, revenue and employment in rural communities of Colorado. We are specifically focused on assisting and developing the student community within Mesa County and the Western Slope of Colorado,” Eggebrecht said.

Cloudrise was among the winners of the 2021 Colorado Companies to Watch program. Aspen Technologies Group, Growl Agency and Phoenix Haus also won awards. MLS Senior Care and Timberleaf Trailers were finalists.

Aspen Technologies Group provides consulting services to improve customer user experiences as well as cloud-based contact center solutions. 

Growl Agency, a design and marketing firm, helps clients drive more revenue and results.

Phoenix Haus is a prefabricated home designer manufacturer that specializes in environmentally friendly homes.

Cloudrise provides a range of services to companies to assess their capability to protect data and offers them automated processes and other resources as well as management services.

Eggebrecht was named chairman of the computer science and cybersecurity industry advisory council at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction. The council promotes programs and curriculums that lead to careers in cybersecurity.
