Henry worked in the lending space for many years, as a GM of a startup company among other positions, before he hit upon the idea of CloudMyBiz in 2012. He noticed a large gap between traditional business systems and the new cloud based technology that was filling the market, and wanted to use that new potential to improve results for clients. As a result, he has seen huge impacts through advanced automations and integrations, leading to better service, better collaboration and all around improved business returns. When it comes to Salesforce, Henry believes in the platform 100%, and truly feels passionate towards using it. He loves the capability, speed and flexibility that he has when using Salesforce.
Henry prides himself on being honest and sincere. He wants business to be more than just a transaction of money for labor, but instead to be a real relationship between people and organizations. His vision for the company, and for life, is to always keep growing and developing and to never get complacent.
Originally from Montreal, he moved from the cold ski slopes to the California beaches, and loves that he almost never needs a sweater in winter. Originally (and still) a hockey fan, he has now seen the light, and become a passionate fan of American football. Henry can otherwise be found spending time with the his wife and 4 kids, travelling, and on occasion, drinking good Belgian beer.
Henry has the following certifications: Salesforce.com Certified Advanced Administrator, Salesforce.com Certified Service Cloud Consultant, Salesforce.com Certified Sales Cloud Consultant, Salesforce.com Certified Force.com Developer and Salesforce.com Certified Administrator
Ronnie Bar-Lev Rom
Ronnie is the office backbone at CloudMyBiz. She jumped into accounting in 2005 and added HR to her resume around 2010. She has experience in various industries, such as real estate, restaurants and technology. Without her, the office would probably burst into spontaneous flames. She’s that good. Although Ronnie is relatively new to Salesforce, in her time with CloudMyBiz she has learned a lot about the platform and keeps learning something new every day.
Outside of work, she can be found spending time with her kids, family and friends. If it’s an outdoor activity, she will be there. Parks, beaches, pools, you name it. When not exploring the world, she loves listening to music and dancing her feet off.
Mike got his first taste of Project Management at Harbor Freight Tools building out their IVR for their customer service and inbound sales lines. Shortly after that, he moved on to work with backend software to support the selling of car parts online, as well as an electronic catalog for dealerships to showcase their accessories. He stayed there for a little over 3 years before coming to CloudMyBiz. He now attributes everything he knows about Salesforce (and life) to his experience here, at CloudMyBiz.
To sum up his hobbies, it is sports, sports and more sports. He played lacrosse in college but has since traded in the lacrosse stick for golf clubs. He watches just about anything sport related. When he isn’t golfing, he can usually be found listening to country music or spending time with family and friends.
Scott has been a software developer since 2013, working in a variety of industries before arriving at CloudMyBiz, such as a large payroll company, and a non-profit. Mostly self-taught, he found himself drawn to development after high school and slowly learned a number of different coding languages. When it comes to computers and development, he finds it all pretty interesting.
Outside of work, he has such unique hobbies as reading, playing guitar and watching Netflix. Super original Scott. However, he did take a recent 3 month trip to live and work in the Czech Republic. Both he and his fiancee loved it there, and want to go back for even longer. His real passion outside of work is gaming, primarily PC and old school consoles. He likes to play and beat all the old, very challenging games from his youth, such as Lion King and Quake. Especially Lion King.

He worked in restaurants and food service for many years, before recently switching to writing, where he could better use his creative side.

Matt has been in financial services since leaving college. Prior to coming to CloudMyBiz, he spent 3 years as a mortgage loan officer, and most recently a year working at a commercial lender called Currency Capital, specializing in equipment financing and working capital.
He is well experienced with Salesforce, having used it at his two previous companies, with CloudMyBiz being the third consecutive company that uses Salesforce as a CRM. As he continues to gain more experience with Salesforce, he is continually impressed with just how powerful of a tool it is.
In fact, CloudMyBiz being a Salesforce partner is one of the main reasons he chose to work here. He is looking forward to educating business owners on the capabilities of Salesforce and helping them tailor it to meet their specific business needs.
Outside of work, Matt is a very active person. He loves to play basketball, beach volleyball, and to go to the gym. He tries to do something active every day if possible. Relatively new to California, you can also likely find him exploring the various and beautiful landscapes nearby.

As an experienced project manager, Chris has spent the last 11 years working for multiple software companies implementing software solutions in Aerospace, Oil & Gas, Energy, Construction, Manufacturing, and Banking industries.
His first Salesforce project was only last year with a previous company, implementing Sales Cloud and Service Cloud into their organization. He managed the pilot implementation that led to the rollout for the APAC and EMEA regions. The total project budget was $37 million dollars with $15 million in licenses and the rest in professional services… so it was super quick and easy.
Chris has also been successful outside of project management. He is a former country and ballroom dancing and a two-time UCWDC World Champion, Novice and Intermediate level (Open Division). Now he spends his free time pursuing his side gig of photography, or spending time with his kids.

Before this, he worked with two different media companies as well as a non-profit, handling a number of different duties, from Salesforce setup to IT to product development. He likes to continue his learning of all things Salesforce with sites such as TrailHead.
Ben finds himself checking Twitter quite a bit. But not obsessively, he thinks. Living in New York, he spends most of his days hustling through the big city. Fast enough to miss plenty, but at the same time slow enough to strike up conversation with many. Like most people, he loves to stop and take in the scenery and the beauty of the city, when the weather permits of course.

Hoai loves photography and taking photos in his free time. He can often be found with his girlfriend spending time in nature, traveling, camping, and of course, taking photos of it all. Some of his favorite spots to visit are Yosemite, Zion, Havasupai, Joshua Tree, Death Valley, & Big Sur. Back at home, he has a small collection of pets, including dogs, bunnies and bantam chickens.

Om Rishi Quintero
Om is a bit of a scientist at heart. She is constantly testing things and examining the results (and not just with software). She was originally studying Genetics when she first heard of QA Testing. Her trial and error nature led to her falling in love with QA almost immediately. She has brought that love to SQA testing for companies in various industries, such as Banking, Health, and Mobile Entertainment. Though some people view ‘finding errors’ as a destructive task, she likes to think of it as an opportunity to deliver the best product possible.
When not analyzing details, Om, not surprisingly, loves learning new things and reading. Otherwise, you can probably find her either playing with her daughter or snuggled up with her cat and a cup of good tea.
Om is an ISTQB certified tester.
