Bob is known across the company as a process and business redesign expert. He has lead and worked hundreds of process improvement efforts using Lean Six Sigma techniques within ITS, Business Administration, Program Management, Manufacturing, Engineering, Supply Chain Management, New Business Development and Mission Assurance.
