I love the current RMBL staff...
I love the current RMBL staff. We have had some great people working for RMBL over the years, but this group is special, from top to bottom. Their collective experience includes serving on the leadership team on an international nonprofit going through a major campus expansion (Kelly Sudderth), running a field station on the North slope of Alaska (Brett Biebuyck), overseeing complex data campaigns from the Sahara to the Arctic in a corporate environment (Erik Hulm), running a construction business (Steve Jennison), and of course, being one of the world’s most famous hermits (billy barr). Even one of our seasonal employees, Bill McCormick, has extensive time serving scientists on the ice in Antarctica. This team rocks.
It is not just the experience of the team that I love. They combine strong technical skills with being thoughtful and inquisitive. They work with grace under pressure, of which there is little shortage in Gothic in early June. They are here to not just do their jobs but do them in service to research and education, an important distinction that can get lost by some.
