ROB WOOD

VP, INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

Born in Mountain View, California, Rob’s family moved progressively eastward during his childhood until they eventually settled in State College, Pennsylvania, where he graduated from High School, and then from Penn State University.  After serving a mission in Vina del Mar, Chile, and graduating with his masters in statistics, he moved to New York City where he worked on Wall Street building trading systems for over 20 years.  With each move, from west coast to east coast, from the suburbs to farms (in Idaho and Pennsylvania), from the USA to Chile, and from a college town to New York City, and then Northern New Jersey, Rob’s appreciation of, and love for people of many backgrounds and life experiences has been enriched and deepened.  Rob met his wife, Marta, at church in New Jersey, and after a rather unorthodox, yet ultimately romantic courtship, they were sealed in the Buenos Aires Temple in Argentina. They are the grateful parents of three wonderful children. In 2008 they moved to Utah, where Rob quickly found a love for the mountains, and an appreciation for the people of Utah.

Rob loves learning about history and world cultures, thinking about thinking, and anything that gets him outdoors on a sunny day, with biking, hiking, swimming, and outdoor photography among his favorites.

In early 2014, Rob was blessed to discover North Star, which he has wholeheartedly embraced.  He is enthusiastic for this opportunity to serve the amazing people of the North Star community, and help fulfill its inspired mission.
