Bob Selfridge

Founder and CEO


Bob Selfridge received his bachelor’s degree in computer science and software development from Juniata College. Prior to starting his own businesses, Selfridge worked in data security, software engineering, systems analysis and webmaster roles at the Pennsylvania State University and Raytheon.

Seflridge is the founder and CEO of Philipsburg-based TMMData, which powers the data supply chains of clients including Comcast, FedEx, Sony, Blue Cross Blue Shield and the Pennsylvania State University, among others.

He achieved remarkable gains in TMMData’s revenue and increased its workforce significantly over the past four years, landing the company on Inc. Magazine’s list of the fastest-growing private companies in America for the past two consecutive years, and among PBC’s Top 100 Organizations in 2015.

For fun, Selfridge loves to play and sing in bands affiliated with his church and other local organizations. He also belongs to the Christian Motorcycle Organization and rides his Honda Golding cross-country annually.

Selfridge dreams of a Centre County that fully realizes its potential as a place for tech companies to grow.

“Too often, there’s an assumption that without Silicon Valley connections or an urban center from which to recruit talent, rural communities like ours have no business in the tech business. However, at TMMData, we’re leveraging the diverse experience and transferable skillsets of people right in our community, where individuals whose talents were previously under-utilized in other lines of work are now powering the data analysis functions of Fortune 100 companies across the world,” he said.

He noted that his greatest mistake in his career was putting off moving forward out of fearing that the product would not be perfect.

“It took years for us to realize we needed to LAUNCH already and it has been a fun ride since!” he said.
