FMERA MOURNS THE PASSING OF ROBERT ADES

FMERA mourns the passing of Vice Chairman Robert “Bob” Ades, who admirably served on the FMERA Board for the last three years. Bob worked tirelessly during his tenure on the Board to bring jobs and technology development back to the Fort. As an experienced engineer and management consultant, Bob brought a wealth of knowledge to the Board, and we are grateful for his service. His presence will be sorely missed. Our thoughts go out to his family. Over the past 50 years, Bob worked as a management consultant in 33 of the United States and in 33 foreign countries. He built and/or turned around high quality labor intensive manufacturing businesses that over their life generated payrolls of over one-half billion dollars. The breadth of his experience allowed him to see the big picture. His hands-on experience gave Bob the skills to successfully identify and design strategies that yielded long term results. He was dedicated to using his knowledge and experiences to leave our world a more productive place for future generations. His commitment to FMERA’s mission, and his passion for bringing jobs and investment to the Fort, were crucial to FMERA’s ongoing redevelopment efforts and will have a lasting impact.
