Team Rubicon Global announces the appointment of Frank Sandbye-Ruud to the position of Launch Manager for Team Rubicon Norge, effective immediately.
“Frank has shown his passion and dedication to the growth of Team Rubicon Norge as a volunteer since joining the organization in the fall of 2016”, said David Fascinato, Director of Business Operations of Team Rubicon Global. “We’re excited to have him as the Launch Manager, where he can continue driving the growth of Team Rubicon Norge”.
Sandbye-Ruud commented, “Deploying with Team Rubicon to New Orleans, and later to Haiti, was a life changing experience. Team Rubicon showed me that I not only have a lot of work still in me but I could use my experience in doing good for others. Now I am given the chance to give something back to the TRibe by helping build Team Rubicon Norge to a full member of the global family. I am honored, proud, and eager to get shit done”!
Frank served 20 years in the Norwegian National Guard as an instructor and platoon commander, ending in 2005 when he was injured. He also spent 2 1/2 years in the international service with the UN and Nato, serving in the Balkans, South-Lebanon, and Afghanistan.
Frank was first introduced to Team Rubicon when he deployed with Team Rubicon USA on Operation Geaux Big in 2016 in response to severe flooding in Louisiana. Since then, Frank has stayed active with Team Rubicon and has deployed on multiple operations. Frank has become an inspirational resource and valued volunteer for Team Rubicon Norge and recently received the Newcomer of the year from Frivillighet Norge. As Launch Manager, Sandbye-Ruud will oversee the growth of Team Rubicon Norge and will report directly to David Fascinato, Director of Business Operations.
