CHARLOTTE BAKER

FOUNDER & CEO, DIGITAL HANDS, TAMPA

Baker and Vince Rocca founded Digital Hands 20 years ago. The firm, named by After Nines as one of the top 100 managed security service providers, offers cyber-security services to clients in both the public and private sectors and has won numerous awards for its customer service and innovations. The company expanded its headquarters in Florida in 2020. Baker, who has been named CEO of the Year by CEO magazine, is a founding member of the Tampa Bay Technology Forum and a strong advocate for women in technology. She serves on the board of the University of Tampa and is chairwoman of Tampa Bay Wave, a non-profit technology startup accelerator.

EDUCATION University of Virginia (BS), Darden (MBA)
PROFESSIONAL EVOLUTION I loved my time working for big companies such as Microsoft, Raymond James, Reuters and Verizon because each provided challenges and lessons in how to capture market share at very large scale with mass orchestration. But I always wanted to start a company that would set a different pace for innovation by outmaneuvering the Goliaths of the tech industry through speed, creativity and culture.
SOMETHING SURPRISING I like to mow the grass, use the shop vac and take on big manual labor projects.
