Brian Irlbeck Project Executive

What is your role at SRE? Project Executive - to help manage and coordinate all aspects of the project to ensure it is built safely, on time, within budget, and to SRE quality standards. The main interface with the client that will hopefully lead to repeat business.

What was the most unexpectedly interesting place you’ve traveled to for work? Boise, ID – it was really a neat and beautiful place that I had no idea about before doing a project there. You rarely hear anything about the city or Idaho in general, and I think it’s a hidden gem. Lots of outdoor activities, small town feel, good restaurants, nice people.

Why do people like working at SRE? The people - we have a lot of very talented people that all work hard.  No one wants to be the weak link and let other members of the group down.

Where did you grow up? On a farm about 5 miles outside of a town of 350 people named Dedham, Iowa. It was a great place to grow up and really made me who I am today.

What was your dream job when you were growing up? After watching Top Gun, I dreamed of being a fighter pilot

What’s your favorite thing to do on weekends? Getting out of the house and doing something with the family. It could be a going to a park, the beach, zoo, museum, shopping. Going anywhere with two toddlers is always an adventure.

What is one thing you will never do again? Run a marathon – my body was not made to run 26.2 miles. I made it to the end, but a half-marathon (when in shape) is more my style.

Would you rather never use social media sites/apps again or never watch another movie or TV show? I think I could do without social media sites relatively easily, but not movies or TV shows. You can get a summary from social media, but you need to see the whole thing to fully enjoy the movie or TV show.
