In 1998 Bob Bauman a semi-retired industrial engineer and his wife Diana moved to Bradenton, FL from South Dakota to be closer to his mother. I do not remember how he found out about the office but he started his career on January 26, 1998 as a front line associate.
It wasn’t long before we put his engineering background to good use doing time and motion studies on some of of our processes to improve efficiency. His data on one project was used on a driver license cost benefit analysis required by the Florida Legislature when talks began about shifting the duties from the State to the County Tax Collectors. The transition eventually became law a few years ago set to be completed by July 2015.
Bob spent most of his career in our IT Department where he served on the help desk and as the project manager. He had the perfect demeanor for resolving IT related problems and over the years solved thousands of them.
He was selected Employee of the Quarter in 2002 and was our lone and proud Minnesota Vikings fan. He almost retired a few years back but agreed to stay on a little longer for us of which we are extremely grateful..
Bob and Diana will be moving to Utah to be closer to family. We wish you all the best!

After 13 years of processing mail in our Operations Department Mavis Degelman is retiring and we wish her the best in her future endeavors. During her time with us Mavis collected all the staples that came with the work she processed and I just had to share it. It fills up a can of coffee.
