Bob taps into his mantra, “efficient, effective, and productive,” often as he develops policy and processes to improve operational efficiencies. The UND Alumni Association & Foundation’s technology infrastructure is continuously improving and evolving under Bob’s analysis and recommendations.

When Bob needs to unwind from leading his large Operations & Engagement teams, he likes to golf, spend time with family and friends at his lake home, and watch sports.
