  Hanford Nuclear Reservation
  Richland, Washington
  Department of Energy

  Project Description: Provided network and telecommunications infrastructure and
  electronics to 18,000 workstation locations in literally hundreds of locations both
  within and near the 540 square mile nuclear reservation under a mandate by
  DOE to have every system connected and communicating within 5 years.
  Facilities ranged everywhere from construction trailers to multi-story buildings.
  Projects migrated from Broadband/Baseband to Structured wiring to Fiber-to-
  the-Desk as the EIA/TIA and FIPs Pubs (Federal standards) were being
  discovered, modified and established. All phases of Project Management
  principles were rigorously developed and exercised. Specifications for both
  Inside and Outside Plant were finessed from "Lessons Learned". Coordination of
  efforts, "reinvention of government", peer-reviews and consolidation of groups
  helped many of those projects get done ahead of time and under budget in multi-
  project mode. All projects managed by Robert Pritchett were "hands-on" to
  alleviate any Engineering Change Notices or possible "stop work" activities in
  and around radioactive "hot zones". All work was closely orchestrated between
  various Union-based contractors, subcontractors and clients to have cut-overs
  done during weekends, holidays and other "off" times to keep downtime to a
  minimum. Some of the work was classified and TEMPEST-based. While the
  Hanford Local Area Network (H-LAN) was evolving, we also did a major
  telecommunications cut-over from combining two telecommunications providers
  systems to QWEST Federal Services, replacing all Outside Plant with a large
  fiber backbone system between Areas and copper services within those areas.
  Robert was intimately involved in those as well. Projects were done with the goal
  of "done right once". And they were. Many of the projects were multi-million dollar
  activities and required high level security clearances.

  Hewlitt-Packard Corvallis
  Corvallis, Oregon
  Hewlitt-Packard

  Project Description: Provided telecom project management services coordinating
  a small union-based team of 11 to upgrade the telecommunications and
  computer network systems for a multi-building campus facility in constant
  production-mode without adversely affecting existing production and new
  construction. Work was also done in other locations in the area for HP. All inside
  and outside plant work was done for voice, data and video systems and services
  to well over 1,811 locations plus architectural design work for 2 new multi-story
  buildings that finished the campus. Outside plant systems were fiber and inside
  plant systems were structured wire copper, fiber and coax.
  Facilities were everything from construction trailers to multi-story buildings. Not
  once were we fined for affecting production during the work done there (fines
  were around $70K per minute of downtime). A "plug&play" approach to
  estimating and ordering product was also established. excellent installation
  efforts by the team.

  Walla Walla State Penitentiary
  Walla Walla Washington
  Washington State Department of Corrections

  Project Description: Design-Built complete infrastructure replacement for both
  inside and outside plant for 73 buildings on campus for both telecommunications
  and computer systems to over secured 1,100 locations. Extremely challenging
  operation coordinating all aspects of design, site surveys, walkthroughs, secure
  "prison-proof" telecom cabinet and service locations, weekly status sessions,
  building upgrades, a new Telecom Building to populate with various security,
  monitoring and other services. Another "hands-on" project including underground
  tunneling at night, discovery of abandoned and hidden underground and above
  ground systems and cutting over without affecting existing services. Coordination
  efforts between the telecom provider, and access to the new facilities as well as
  coordinating with on-site engineering groups while working around prison riots,
  electrocutions, attempted prison breakouts, etc. All work was done on schedule
  without any downtime even as Engineering Change Notices were handled daily
  during the construction phase and a rapidly dwindling budget and increased
  demand for services escalated. Much of the construction phase and oversight
  project management work was done at night while some of the worst criminals
  known to man were locked up behind bars. This was a walk-in, take-over project
  that had been in planning stages for 10 years with construction completed in 9
  months. The final 3 years of redesign and completion were handled by Robert
  Pritchett. This was an excellent and successful team

  Bonneville Power Administration
  Between Seattle Washington and Portland Oregon areas
  Fiber backbone (later to be known as NOANet or Northwest Optical Area
  Network)

  Project Description: Provided Quality Assurance of fiber runs between new
  telecommunication huts along the BPA power lines between Seattle and
  Portland substations along the I-5 corridor. Discovered and used a technique for
  testing for dark fiber in adverse weather and field conditions. Fusion-spliced
  cables. Searched and discovered "pinched" cable locations to resolve dB loss
  issues. No broken fiber found.

  Tetra-Tech
  Pasadena California
  Internet Telephony Feasibility Study for the Enterprise

  Project Description: Provided a multi-phase Study to discover whether or not an
  Enterprise Internet Telephony system would be feasible between 173 locations
  worldwide. Gathered telecom system information for each location. Found
  vulnerabilities for Y2K PBX voice-messaging date/time systems. Created an
  Information Technology team with membership from each office in each Division
  to establish a baseline of services. Helped create the Tetra Tech and
  Subsidiaries Enterprise Network diagram and
  created a project password-protected website for members. A Virtual Private
  Network (VPN) phase was established, but Internet Telephony was not mature
  enough then and too cost-prohibitive at the time. All the offices were not
  comfortable enough to"join hands" in a full VPN situation. Consolidation efforts
  between Divisions and offices kept the dynamics very fluid.


  Municipal Solid Waste Composting Plant, Portland, Oregon

  As the Manager of Projects for Riedel Waste Systems (“Riedel”) I was principally
  responsible for negotiating a key subcontract that permitted the funding entity,
  Credit Suisse of New York (the “Bank”), to approve the funding for this project so
  that it could go forward. I also dealt with all contractual matters affecting this
  project, negotiating change orders and claims, and was the point of contact for
  the Bank’s engineer to process payment of Riedel’s monthly pay invoice. My
  success in dealing with the Bank’s engineer ensured the continuing payments to
  Riedel that made it possible for Riedel to complete and commission the project.
  My ability to work well with the legal staff and create the essential documentation
  ensured that issues that later arose that had to be addressed in the courts wound
  up favorably for Riedel. I also spent significant amounts of time dealing with the
  City of Portland construction permit approval process and dealing with key

  DSC Communications Japan Project
  Although this project continued for the entire time I was employed at Atlas
  Telecom (“Atlas”), Portland, Oregon (1992 to 1998), as the Senior Contract
  Administrator for Atlas in 1992 I worked a significant part of this year on this
  contract with DSC Communications (“DCS”) in Plano, Texas, which was the
  general contractor for a large element of a huge communications project in
  Japan. Atlas was able to land the initial $20+ million contract for supplying a fax
  store-and-forward system for this project by virtue of the 23-page support
  services agreement I drafted which was the final piece of the negotiation to be
  resolved. It should be noted that I ultimately became the Director of Proposals
  and Contracts for Atlas. In this position I successfully grew the department from
  3 personnel to 15 over a 2.5-year period.

  Project – DeTeMobile/Deutsche Telekom Projects, Multiple Locations in
  Germany During this time frame at Atlas I had become the Director of Proposals
  and Contracts, but I was still closely involved on key projects. I mention these
  two projects together, because without how Atlas performed on the DeTeMobile
  proposal, Atlas would not have gotten the $23 million contract with Deutsche
  Telekom. On the DeTeMobile proposal (Request for Proposal [“RFP”] response),
  I was responsible for ensuring the accurate translation from the technical and
  commercial German documents into English and translating the answers back
  into German. The contractual parts of the efforts I did the translation work myself
  due to my command of German, whereas the balance of the documents I got
  quotes for and finally selected a translation service which assembled a team to
  attack this project. I did the final review of all the German language responses to
  ensure there was nothing glaringly wrong in the translation work. While Atlas did
  not win this bid, the showing we made was so impressive to DeTeMobile that
  they recommended to Deutsche Telekom that Atlas be strongly considered for a
  voice messaging system project that Deutsche Telekom was seeking to bid out.
  Again the Atlas response to the RFP had to be largely in German and once again
  my facility in the language helped to complete the RFP response and ultimately
  to win the bid. My ability to discern a path to resolution of a last moment impasse
  between Atlas and Deutsche Telekom was also a key factor in turning what
  looked to be failed negotiations to securing a signed contract literally between
  1:30 am and 8:30 am in the same night/morning.


  Madinat Yanbu Al-Sinaiyah (MYAS), Kingdom of Saudi worked for the Ralph M.
  Parsons Company’s Saudi Arabian subsidiary, Saudi Arabian Parsons Limited
  (SAPL), on this project. The project was the construction of an entire city for
  initially 150,000 inhabitants (later expanded to 250,000) from the ground up.
  This was one half of the entire project of the construction of two cities, one on

  either coast, Jubail being the other city considered to be a part of this project that
  is still regarded as the largest construction project in the history of the world. Our
  half of the project included the construction of an airport, industrial seaport,
  roads, infrastructure, heavy industrial facilities for petro-chem, light industrial
  park, schools, mosques, housing, shopping areas, a hospital and huge
  desalination plants. From 1978 through the next ten years approximately $1
  billion in contracts were let per year, after which span a slightly lesser sum was
  spent annually. My department of 7 supervisors and 64 contract administrators
  were responsible for the administration of these contracts that encompassed
  design, construction, operation and maintenance. When I joined the project it
  took on the average 9.5 months to process a change order from recognition of
  the need to getting approval from the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu,
  the Saudi governing authority. By the time I left 4.5 year later, the average time
  had dropped to 2.5 months. Much of this improvement was due directly to my
  efforts. Furthermore, a couple of years after I had joined the project, I drafted a
  memo interpreting the funding rules used by the Royal Commission for Jubail
  and Yanbu which was used to justify the continued expenditure of $1 billion
  annually on contracts until after I departed the project. I was also delegated by
  the top SAPL project director to deal with sub-cabinet officials of the Saudi
  Arabian government on various issues on this project, including a claim against
  SAPL, which was successfully defeated.

  King Abdul Aziz International Airport, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
  I worked for the Ralph M. Parsons Company as a part of the Parsons-Daniel
  Joint Venture to construct this $4.5 billion airport. I came onto the project as a
  Contract Administrator (Associate), worked my way up to Deputy Department
  Manager with day-to-day responsibilities for directing the efforts of seven contract
  administrators, and ultimately became the Special Advisor for Supplemental
  Agreements, the last of which agreements I worked on totaled $475 million, half
  of which I either directly negotiated or re-negotiated. This airport was split
  between a civilian side and a Royal Saudi Air Force side. Communication
  systems and flight information display systems were significant elements of this
  construction which was built largely by change order due to the fact that two
  years after the project was started, an official air traffic volume study was
  accepted which showed the need to massively increase the originally planned
  size of the airport. One of the first tasks I was assigned when I arrived on the
  project was to rationalize the change order tracking and documentation system. I
  did so and in the process created the project contract administration library and
  trained a man from Pakistan and a man from Djibouti to run this library. Six
  years after I left the project these two men were still capably running this critical
  contract document repository. Establishing standard operating procedures to
  improve work efficiency has been something I have done on every project I’ve
  been involved with since this project.

  CommTec
  The Cabling Division of Pomeroy Computer Resources, Inc.
  Problem: An $850 million technology company traded on NASDAQ, PCR had
  tried but failed to establish a successful communication cabling company. While
  the company’s CEO had determined that the addition of a cabling company
  “should” be a huge success, PCR did not have a person with the right experience
  to make it happen.

  Solution: In January 1994, PCR approached Reibling and asked that he take on
  the project. Before accepting the assignment, Kurt researched PCR and the
  cabling industry and wrote the CommTec strategic business plan.

  The business plan confirmed that there was room in the industry for a full-service
  network integration and cabling company, that PCR’s sales force could sell it,
  and that Kurt had the skills to launch and run it.

  As president of CommTec, Kurt launched the division on April 1, 1994. In this
  role, he led and managed the division’s marketing, sales, operations, personnel,
  process and quality management, training, accounting, administration, and P&L.

  Results: Under Kurt’s leadership:

     •   Sales and operations expanded from three employees in one city
         garnering $0.3 million sales in 1994 to more than 300 employees in 31
         cities earning $17.5 million in sales and 10% NEBT in 1999.

     •   All cabling management, purchasing, accounting, and operations from
         PCR’s 31 branch offices were centralized into PCR headquarters in
         Hebron, Ky.

     •   CommTec grew in five years to be one of the “Top 10 Cabling Contractors
         in the USA.”

     •   PCR was ranked in 1999 among the Top Five Network Integrators and the
         Fourth-Best General Business VAR in the nation.

  One of TWG’s clients, a $10 million software integration company, asked TWG to
  act as its broker in its attempt to sell the organization to a larger company.
  However, TWG was unsuccessful in attracting potential buyers.

  Solution: In August 1999, TWG engaged Kurt to package, market, and help
  TWG sell their client.

  Results: Kurt enhanced the client’s marketing material and aggressively
  contacted every potential buyer in the United States, quickly receiving offers from
  three major corporations.

  In March 2000, TWG’s client was successfully sold to Tyco Electronics, a division
  of Tyco International, for $10 million. The majority of the consideration was cash.

  Sysborne/Cable-Optic Corporation
  Problem: Sysborne, a two-man start-up communications company, and Loth
  Mbi, a Steelcase business furniture company, wanted to start a joint venture to
  provide communication cabling to their clients.

  However, neither of the companies, both based in Cincinnati, Ohio, had the
  expertise to write the business plan and then launch and run such a venture.

  Solution: In November of 2000, the companies contracted with Reibling &
  Associates to write the strategic business plan for, launch, and provide temporary
  leadership and management to run the new company.

  Kurt led and managed the marketing, sales, operations, personnel, process and
  quality management, training, accounting, administration, and P&L of Cable-
  Optic Corporation.

  Results: The joint venture secured four major cabling manufacturer certifications
  in five months. In June 2001, Sysborne bought out Loth Mbi’s interest in Cable-
  Optic Corporation.

  Sysborne/Cable-Optic grew from $0 in March 2001 to a going rate of more than
  $600,000 per month by December 2001. In June 2001, Sysborne purchased the
  assets of Infinet from Teligent and was subsequently awarded $20 million Cop
  Smart Contract.

  Kurt also helped Sysborne launch the expansion of Sysborne/Cable Optic to
  Louisville, Ky.; Columbus, Ohio; and Indianapolis, Ind.

  Directec’s top three executives left the company within one month of each other,
  leaving the company severely lacking leadership and big-corporation
  management experience.

  The CEO also had a vision to develop a new company.

  Solution: In January 2000, Directec’s CEO contracted with Kurt to join the
  company to relieve himself of the above challenges, help run the company, and
  give him more time to work on the business plan for his new company.

  Kurt initially took on the management of the sales organization of the company.
  Then, when the three executives left, Kurt assumed the additional leadership and
  management of marketing, human resources, operations, personnel, process
  and quality management, training, accounting, administration, and P&L.

  Results: Due to the downturn in the technology industry in 2000, sales declined
  from 1999 to 2000. Under my leadership, Directec took advantage of the slow
  time by:

     •   Implementing development plans, performance plans, and evaluation
         plans for all employees in the company.
     •   Launching a total quality management program, including document every
         company process.
     •   Developing its Technology Alliance Program (agent program), resulting in
         significant sales.

  The internal improvements made in the company paved the way for a successful
  and profitable year in 2001, while other technology companies went out of
  business.

  Additionally, in 2001, the CEO successfully launched his new company, Dough
  Nutty, a bakery focused only on delivering to Louisville businesses.

  OneStar GPS Systems
  Problem: OneStar GPS Systems (OneStar) was founded by two people in 2000.
  The founders did a commendable job researching the industry for GPS tracking
  systems offering the best functionality and price. Additionally, they identified
  markets where there was a huge need for affordable GPS tracking systems.
  However, as of March 2002, they had not made any substantial sales.

  Solution: In March 2002, OneStar’s CEO contracted with Kurt to join the
  company as the interim COO to help him determine what was wrong with the
  company and help increase sales.

     • Adding a dealer and agent channel
     • Designing and implementing several marketing and sales programs
     • Personally targeting and making sales calls on dealer, agent, and large
         account prospects.

  Results from March through August 2002:
    • 8 agents authorized
    • 4 dealers authorized
    • 35 sales appointments with fortune 500 accounts
    • Finalist for thousands of units with GE Capital TIP (owner of 150,000

  credibility in the marketplace and has allowed them to compete for high volume
