Bob Kasenchak, formerly a project manager at Access Innovations, Inc., has recently been promoted to Production Coordinator within the company. Bob is a great representation of the fresh talent at Access Innovations. His extraordinary people skills, organizational skills, and leadership qualities make him an excellent fit to oversee editorial endeavors.
After receiving his bachelor’s degree in liberal arts from St. John’s College in Santa Fe in 1995, Bob went on to the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston to receive a master’s degree in music theory in 2001, and spent several years pursuing doctoral studies in music theory at the University of Texas. Bob remains an expert in all things music at Access Innovations.
Bob has been working at Access Innovations for two years, rising through the ranks with his quick wit and experience. He has worked on and managed projects for clients such as JSTOR, the Education division of McGraw-Hill, AAAS (the American Association for the Advancement of Science), and ASCE (the American Society for Civil Engineers), among others. His experience with taxonomy and thesaurus development and his knowledge of editorial workflows and challenges make him a skilled coordinator. He shares his knowledge and expertise both with clients and with the editors of Access Innovations as he ensures that projects are running smoothly and efficiently.
“I’m proud to serve on the Access Innovations team,” remarked Bob recently. “It’s exciting and fulfilling to play a role in the cutting-edge services we provide to our clients. I am especially interested in projects involving author and named entity disambiguation like the work we did for AIP’s Scitation offering.”
Bob has given presentations at several industry conferences over the last couple of years as well as presentations to clients and potential clients. He presented a paper at the 2013 Taxonomy Boot Camp in Washington D.C., and attended the 2013 Frankfurt Book Fair, meeting with many past and present Access Innovations clients.
