We offer expertise and quality service from an experienced team.

Anastasia Durbala

Director of Compliance

Anastasia is a graduate of California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo with over 20 years of experience in technology, data, and security.

Her past experience includes leading a highly successful information technology team, and running data analysis for a top accounting firm in San Francisco. Anastasia also worked with a niche accounting firm on the Peninsula as IT Manager, where she provided leadership for the continuing development of an innovative, robust, and secure information technology environment in multi-state offices. She oversaw key technology issues, including policy implementation and best practices, resource allocation, information security systems and compliance, and end user support and client support services.

Anastasia works with the Women’s Global Leadership Initiative, and supports Girls Who Code as well as local Bay Area theatre.

Anastasia loves to swim, but not in the degree of cold water that Cam and Steve course through.

Steve Walker

Co-Founder

Steve earned a Bachelor’s degree from University of California, Berkeley and studied international economics at American University. He began his career in technology in 1990, working in networking and security for companies including Bechtel, Cohesive, 3Com, Good, and Exodus.

In 2003, Steve started Cobaltix. Since then, many of Steve’s clients started asking for not just IT and security services, but also for compliance work, so in 2015, Steve started Cobaltix Compliance to address these compliance and regulatory needs.  More recently, Steve has been focusing a lot of time on Manage Labs, a SaaS company that helps managers. There has been huge interest in this new company.

In addition to running Cobaltix, Cobaltix Compliance, and Manage Labs, Steve has been helping great not-for-profits. Steve is on the board of Zanmi Lakay, an organization that works directly with street kids in Jacmel, Haiti. Because of his work both in the US and directly with the kids in Haiti, dozens of kids are now computer literate, and more will become so because of the labs that he funded and helped install there.

Steve is also an ultra-marathon, cold-water swimmer. He trains in the San Francisco Bay at the South End Club, and is one of the most accomplished cold-water swimmers in the world. Above water, Steve has been happily married for 24 years and has three great kids.

Cameron Bellamy

Co-Founder

Cameron, a South African native, earned a Bachelor’s degree in Information Systems from Rhodes University as well as a Master’s degree in International Economics and Finance from the University of Queensland.

In 2015 Cameron decided to partner with Steve Walker – after swimming the Strait of Gibraltar together – to create Cobaltix Compliance in San Francisco.

Outside of Cobaltix Compliance, Cameron is the founder and CEO of the Ubunye Challenge. He works to raise money to support some of the poorest and most underdeveloped rural communities of South Africa and Zimbabwe through encouraging participants to complete adventurous endurance challenges.
