Bob Parsons, B.S. '75, D.H.L. '08, founder and executive chairman of Go Daddy

“Never stop investing. Never stop improving. Never stop doing something new.” - Bob Parsons, B.S. '75 (accounting), D.H.L. '08, founder of Go Daddy and current member of the company's Board of Directors. 


Bob Parsons is a serial entrepreneur. He sold his first company to Intuit, Inc. in 1994. Three years later Parsons started Jomax Technologies, renaming the company GoDaddy in 1999. In 2000, GoDaddy became an ICANN-accredited domain name registrar. He and his wife Renee created The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation to provide critical funding to non-profit organizations. The Parsons reinforced their commitment to philanthropy in December of 2013 by publically accepting an invitation to join The Giving Pledge, an initiative started by Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett. They pledged to give away at least half their wealth – and likely much more – to philanthropic causes.
