Just a quick post to congratulate my good friend Robert "Bob" Brese on receiving the Secretary of Energy's Honor Award for Excellence. This tremendous honor is bestowed annually to three leaders within the Department of Energy and anyone who knows Bob can attest to how deserving he is of this recognition. Not only is he a true visionary with tremendous talent, but his humility, dedication and ability to make everyone feel like a peer make him one of the most beloved members of the Federal IT Community and DOE. With Bob's permission, I've included the text from a letter he wrote to the DOE IT Department about his recognition... its is a great message and a great example of the sincerity and humility Bob is know for.
CONGRATULATIONS BOB, AND WELL DESERVED!
