Who is Aroga Technologies?

Grove Bennett
Chief Executive Officer
ext. 1401
About Grove Bennett, CEO
Grove is an entrepreneur specialised in leading edge businesses that are technology based. Grove believes in a strategic vision, collective intelligence and the execution of such visions. Having the experience of running private and public companies, from operations, manufacturing, business development, finance and customer relations Grove has the skill set, dedication and determination to see Aroga become the number one recognised Assistive Technology company providing products, services and solutions globally.

Prior to becoming the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Partner of Aroga Technology Ltd. (Aroga) in July of 2014, Grove had a long history as an entrepreneur. He established his first business, a retail & wholesale sporting goods company servicing recreational & professional sporting activities such as ice hockey, snow skiing and soccer and later established a clothing manufacturing company to service the same industries in Australia. Grove successfully established relationships with companies such as Bauer, Nike, American Express and professional sporting associations such as the South Melbourne Soccer Club throughout the development of his owned and operated family businesses.

Grove got married, had two children (his true passion in life) and relocated to Canada in 2004 to work with publically trading companies on the Toronto Stock Exchange. As the Director of International Marketing & Customer Relations at Atlantis Systems International, Grove was responsible for the on-time delivery of the Integrated Maintenance Training System (IMTS), a maintenance training system for the F/A:18 Fighter Jet and a $44MM Canadian contract to the Royal Canadian Air Force and the Royal Australian Air Force. In order to ensure the contract was successfully completed Grove worked closely with key Australian and Canadian Armed Forces personnel, program managers and suppliers such Boeing and Augusta Westland.

Grove has advanced his professional career at every stage having worked as Vice President of Marketing and more recently as President & Chief Financial Officer at Dynacert Inc., a leading edge technology company manufacturing Hydrogen Generating Systems. The company's key product line was produced to reduce Green House Gases (GHG) by improving the air quality and operating efficacy of diesel combustion engines for trucking fleets with Pepsi Beverages Company (Pepsi Bottling/Pepsi Co) being the primary beneficiary. The companies work later grew to include partnerships with Port Authorities and stationary generator markets were the pollution of GHG was exponential in size and scope.
