Bob is an asset to the community. He is an extremely knowledgeable quality professional, and not only uses those skills to benefit his employer, but also volunteers with several organizations in the community to share his talents with a broader population. As a volunteer for the Performance Excellence Network, Bob has helped leaders within organizations identify & prioritize their improvement opportunities -- an effort that is helping to make Minnesota more effective, productive, and competitive. Bob also serves on a committee that bring expert speakers and topics to other community leaders (to share best practices between organizations); his insights and contributions are always of value. I enjoy fully working with Bob, and am pleased to offer this recommendation.
