MEASURING OUR SUCCESS
Spotlight On: Terry Bonno
Over 500 employees, family members and friends from Transocean Houston offices volunteered at the 2012 Texas Adopt-A-Beach Cleanup held on September 22. The attendance was the largest in Transocean history and the family-friendly event set a new precedent for years to come.
Volunteers of all ages gathered at the beach early Saturday morning where Heather Null, Manager, Environmental and Corporate Responsibility and project lead for the volunteer event, welcomed the crowd. John Truschinger, Senior Vice President, Support Services, and CIO, kicked things off by acknowledging the importance and appreciation of everyone’s attendance and contributions to help keep our beaches clean.
During the four-hour event, participants also enjoyed a tamale, fajitas, and all the fixings buffet, sand castles for the kids and “dunked” Transocean executives, John; Bob Herrin, Vice President Internal Audit; Dave Walls, Vice President QHSE; and Aasmund Erlandsen, Vice President, Operations Assurance, in the dunk tank. Funds raised from the “dollars for dunks” went towards Houston’s Susan G. Komen mission to support the fight against cancer.
The flawless execution was a reflection of the leadership and organization from the project team as well as the cooking/serving team, and all who participated.
“Transocean waved its flag high today and our pride even higher,” John said in reflecting on the success of the event.
Thank you to all volunteers for helping keep our beaches clean!
