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 Operations team, he likes to golf, spend time with family and friends at his lake home, and watch sports.
