Xtern has long had a connection to Rotary Club. Our founder, Keir, a longtime Rotarian, is a member of the leadership of Summit Rotary.
Rotary International is an international service organization whose stated purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders in order to provide humanitarian service and to advance goodwill and peace around the world. It is a non-political and non-religious organization open to all.
The values of Rotary are vital to the functioning of Xtern as a business organization. In fact, the Rotary Club’s 4-Way Test is even referenced on our Mission & Values page. This was what led our most recent hire, Gabe, to apply for work at Xtern.
Gabe participated in an exchange program through Rotary International while he was in high school. A native of Brazil, he spent time with a host family in North Carolina. Gabe has always been involved with Rotary, since his father was Rotarian. After coming to the US for college, Gabe continued to volunteer for Rotary through Rotaract and for the Rotary Exchange program.
Gabe said, “When I saw that Keir was a Rotarian and that the Rotary 4-Way Test was on the Xtern website, I thought, well…there’s a company I’d love to work for! Other companies may be good, but when I saw Keir’s connection to Rotary, that was a really big ‘you-can-trust-this-person’ sign.”
We are so glad that the Rotary connection drew Gabe to work at Xtern. We are delighted to have him join the team and we look forward to strengthening our ties with our local Rotary chapter in the coming years!
