Hornblower has a new face sauntering through our offices around the country. Bob Shaw, a Harvard graduate, US Marine vet and experienced executive, has been named Hornblower's Chief Operating Officer.
In the position for just over a month, Bob has managed to visit all of the Hornblower offices, speak one on one with over 100 employees, take a couples dozen boat rides and lead a two-day senior staff meeting.
Bob, a long-time east coast resident, is gearing up for his first mild west coast winter. An avid athlete, Bob might find California’s conditions a more hospitable training environment.
We’ll hear more from Bob is the coming weeks, months and years but for now we thought we’d let his first comment be a concise summary of his first few weeks: “Awesome: the Hornblower crew is a wonderful group of talented, energetic and dedicated folks. Their emphasis on customer service and teamwork is truly amazing, and I am so fortunate to be on this superb team.”
