Our Founder

JW Roberts
President and CEO, General Datatech

An innovative and results-driven leader with a 20-year industry track record, Roberts founded General Datatech in 1996 with a singular and straightforward goal: Help customers achieve high levels of innovation and productivity through technology.

Under Roberts’ dynamic leadership, GDT completed a triple Cisco audit and received Master certification in Collaboration, Security and Cloud Builder making them an exclusive partner to achieve this status.

Roberts credits much of his success to the fact that GDT hires the best talent in the industry and then empowers them to perform. Roberts’ strong emphasis on people development is evident in the inclusive and diverse workplace that encourages interactions and collaboration among team members.

While guiding GDT’s 300+ employees, Roberts is also directly involved in customer engagements, providing analysis and consulting on network design and implementation of core routing and switching, unified communications, security, wireless, and security solutions. In addition, he spearheads GDT’s efforts to serve as a resource for customers in learning to harness the power of technology.

Recently, Roberts led the company’s move into a new customer support center—transforming a vacant building into a state-of-the-art, ‘green’ facility that features an advanced working laboratory for technology staging, testing and education.

Prior to founding GDT, Roberts spent his earlier years as a sales professional in the technology industry, where he worked closely with clients and their engineering teams to analyze and plan highly complex solutions. Roberts earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Drake University.
