Boomi founder Rick Nucci made Startup Leaders chief, replaces Bob Moul

After a high profile nearly two years as president of Philly Startup Leaders, Bob Moul is leaving the volunteer effort, but he's keeping it in the Boomi family, being succeeded by its founder Rick Nucci.

Rick Nucci will become Philly Startup Leaders next president.

After a high profile nearly two years as president of Philly Startup Leaders, Bob Moul is leaving the volunteer effort, but he’s keeping it in the Boomi family.

Moul, who was CEO of Berwyn-based cloud computing company Boomi during its acquisition to Dell and is now chief at Old City mobile backend provider Artisan, will be replaced by Boomi’s founder Rick Nucci.

Nucci, currently a venture partner at FirstMark Capital, has been around Philadelphia area technology since 1999, and he plans on launching his next startup in Philadelphia, according to the official announcement and previous reports.

Moul represented a big step forward for PSL, from a fledgling group of 30-somethings to a seasoned veteran who was more easily embraced by the Nutter administration. Nucci, if not as polished as Moul, would likely be a continuation of that trend.

Moul will move on to board chair, replacing one of PSL’s founders, Chris Cera, continuing the maturing of the network of regional entrepreneurs. Moul has said he wants to focus more on Artisan, his current venture, and still have some family time, before perhaps going on to other goals.

    Why another Boomi guy? Cronyism at play? Hear the dullness in this announcement?

    Keeping it all in the family 🙁 Bummer that the Board let Bob do this. Another President who hasn’t been an active part of the group. Will PSL continue to grow as a lobby group and continue to lose relevance to its members and its original vision and sense of community?

    Right on Mark. I’ve been on their list for at least 6 months now and I’ve never heard of this guy. I’m sure he’s smart and well qualified, but shouldn’t leaders lead by example?
