Robert Wahrmund attended the University of Texas at Austin, where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering in 1971 and then continued at UT to earn an MBA in 1975. He joined Potentials in 1989 after working for several years at the Texas Medical Foundation. Since joining, Bob has contributed to the expansion of Potentials’ business. Though the company had initially focused on customers in the United States, Bob spearheaded networking efforts in Europe and Asia to secure a global customer base. Bob also diversified the business model of Potentials by moving beyond the refurbishment service into the development of new and enhanced source insulators. While the business still maintains its initial core capability in refurbishment, the latter developments have accounted for a majority of Potentials’ growth over the past two decades.
