RIT Features GRB’s Robert Everhart in Article about Executive MBA Candidates Helping Local Business
If you have any doubt about that, just ask Vance Metal Fabricators of Geneva, N.Y. Vance began working with Rochester Institute of Technology Executive MBA program candidate and GRB Mortgage Originator Robb Everhart to assess the company’s plans for expanding their product line in the brewing industry.
In a recent RIT feature article, the Executive MBA Capstone project submitted by Robb and “Team 3” advised Vance to forego becoming a “turn-key brew-house system” supplier and remain focused on the stainless steel fermenting and storage tanks for which the company was already well known. The key to the team’s recommendation was research that pointed to the craft brewing industry already nearing its growth peak and comprehensive analysis of the added effort needed for Vance to expand its capabilities and produce a turn-key brewing solution.
“The RIT team was great to work with and saved us lots of missteps and pitfalls,” noted Vance Marketing Manager Pat Farrington in the article.
Enterprises throughout the Rochester community regularly tap into the creative and strategic drive that students can bring to the table in the form of research projects and internships as they complete their coursework. As a community bank we see the future success of each and every local business as vital to the ongoing success of our community, so we remain committed to supporting our local education institutions — and matriculating employees.
We congratulate Robb on the completion of his Executive MBA and for being one of the reasons we continue to see dynamic growth in the Rochester business community.
