Open One Solutions, Inc.

Robert joined the Child’s Voice Board in January of 2012 thanks to the word-of-mouth from both a former and current board member, Barb Regnitz and Michele King.

Robert is founder of Open One Solutions, Inc., which is a next generation provider of telecommunications such as Voice over Internet Protocol, better known as VoIP. Open One works to make this technology simple for individuals and companies to implement into their daily lives.

Robert considers himself to be the chief cheerleader at Open One with the main goal of helping the company to create their vision and keep passion alive within their organization.  Since this company is in the “start-up phase,” he wears many hats.  We’re very glad he’s made room for one more hat as a Child’s Voice Board Member!

We are so excited to have Robert join Child’s Voice and he is too!  When asked why he’s involved, Robert shared, “…it is the amazing gift which Child’s Voice offers to children coupled with the passion of Michele, the staff, the board and the parents.  What amazed me was my tour of the school where I was introduced to children from the young to the graduates – and to see the development and how the graduates blossom into outgoing inquiring minds. It is not often when you have an opportunity to truly assist in impacting a difference on a person’s life.”

When not hard at work, Robert enjoys the outdoors, travel, dining and theater.  When he had more free time, he was an avid race sailor and looks forward to finding time to race sail boats again.  He’s also always had a passion for cars, having grown up in a “car family” and seeing firsthand the love his father had of cars of all types.

Mr. Harney resides in the Lincoln Park neighborhood in Chicago and is the proud uncle of eight nieces and nephews.

Robert, we’re so excited that you’ve joined the Child’s Voice family!
