Bob is an SMBH cornerstone. He is the “B” in SMBH. We have named a conference room after him; we call it “The Bob”. He hosts team members’ baby showers in his home. He participates in every fun office activity we do. He is always ready with a joke, some good advice, and a supportive demeanor. He is also a brilliant engineer, mentor, and leader.
In Bob’s 39 years working with SMBH, his role within the firm has evolved and changed many times – culminating in his most recent title of Vice President + Principal. We have grown and accomplished amazing things under his leadership and guidance. So, it is with much excitement that we announce Bob has decided to move onto the next step in his career by changing his role to Senior Project Engineer.
While Bob will be handing off the baton as owner and principal, he is now assisting and supporting our teams wherever possible. This help will doubtlessly take many forms, including continued mentorship, independent reviews, quality control and assurance, and leading investigations, feasibilities studies, and peer reviews.
We are happy for Bob to move into the next stage of his career and are extremely grateful that he will continue to work with us in his new role. The institutional knowledge and experience that Bob contributes to SMBH, and each project he works on, is one of his many great strengths, and we are privileged to continue to benefit from them. Bob is one in a million, and we are so glad he’s ours.
