Congratulations to Bob Gurin, SMA Senior Vice President and Proposal Manager, for his 30 years of service at SMA! Befitting his long-time role as our SMA proposal process trainer, Ajay Patel, SMA Chief Executive Officer, presented Bob with a gift in recognition of his service during a proposal process training offsite in San Diego. Bob is currently our longest-serving employee and has trained hundreds of SMA Associates how to develop winning proposals using the SMA proposal process. Many SMAers are proud to consider Bob as their mentor and friend.
Bob has had many roles at SMA over his 30 years, including leading our Competition Management Practice, Site Manager for operations with one of our top clients, and Vice President of Quality Assurance and Training. Prior to joining SMA in 1989, Bob was Director of Product Development at Ultrasystems, and prior to that had worked at the NSA.
