Co-founder and COO, Infobip
As Chief Operating Officer, Roberto manages Infobip’s operations to ensure that the company’s strategic vision is reflected through every department’s activity.
He has been instrumental in Infobip’s growth and success, applying his background in business management and technology to scaling the platform globally. With co-founders CEO Silvio Kutić and CTO Izabel Jelenić, he helped bootstrap the company from no turnover to $1bn in just 14 years. And that too with no external investment.
In 2020, Infobip became Croatia’s first unicorn, valued at more than $1bn, when it raised $200m from private equity firm One Equity Partners. Infobip now employs more than 3,700 employees worldwide, has expanded to 70+ offices across six continents, and is directly connected to over 800+ mobile network operators under his leadership.
Roberto started his career at Uljanik in Pula, one of Croatia’s largest shipyards. There, he advanced to senior management in the engineering division, supervising global and multidisciplinary projects within engineering, information technology, organizational improvement and employee relations.
Roberto believes that the greatest value in any company is its people. So, at Infobip, he is focused on developing and training its people to achieve efficiency and expertise.
His strength in building teams, understanding global work cultures, and business development is instrumental to Infobip’s exponential growth.
Roberto holds a B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture.
