Celebrating John Lawrence and Robyn Mooney
On October 3rd, Brinkman and Associates celebrated the careers and contributions of our departing OH&S Administrator Robyn Mooney and long-time COO John Lawrence, with a shared retirement party at VanDusen Gardens. John and Robyn joined Brinkman’s reforestation operations in the mid-1980s, with John quickly demonstrating his leadership skills and advancing through the ranks to Ontario Regional Manager and across the continent to his long-held position as COO at the New Westminster head office. Over the last 16 years as COO, John stewarded the company through a period of extraordinary growth that spanned the company’s diverse divisions. Robyn’s work in the past decade both managing the office through her front desk role and supporting the OH&S department in the field made her a vital part of the core team. As Dirk said in his farewell speech, “We all know we would not be here – with all we have accomplished – without your contributions. And for that we thank you.” All of us at Brinkman will miss John and Robyn for their warmth and humor and wealth of experience, and wish them well on their next adventures.
