Meet December Associate Spotlight, Tom Ottenbacher

Home » Blog » Meet December Associate Spotlight, Tom Ottenbacher

We are thrilled to pay tribute to Tom Ottenbacher, one of Edafio’s esteemed associates and our spotlight for December.

The comings and goings of staff are a part of every dynamic organization; therefore, it can be challenging to get to know our coworkers better as people, especially during a time of social distancing. We have to be mindful that our company culture thrives on our exceptional people as much as their outstanding technical skills. As such, we are finding that our periodic interviews with associates allow us to acknowledge and celebrate the beautiful life stories, extraordinary professional accomplishments, and even the little quirks that make us uniquely beautiful human beings.

We hope you find each Edafio associate story as inspiring as we do in gathering and sharing them.
