Bob is the Executive Director of The BTS Center in Portland, Maine. An ordained United Church of Christ minister, he served a UCC church in Presque Isle, ME for 25 years before becoming the president of Bangor Seminary in 2011 and leading that school through a complex process of closure, transition, and reinvention. Following the final graduation in 2013, he was appointed to facilitate a smooth resolution of the transition, and to help The BTS Center (the newly named successor entity) focus its evolving mission. Bob is a graduate of Bangor Seminary (MDiv & DMin). While he is not a skilled practioner, he believes that every organizational leader should have an experience with improv and theater games.
