HENRY M. JACKSON AWARD WINNER
EvCC president values the power of partnership By Jocelyn Robinson
For the Herald Business Journal
ommunity involvement is a natural part of life for David Beyer. Beyer saw the positive impact his parents had on the Iowa community where he grew up. He — and his six younger siblings — continue to carry on that tradition of engagement. Beyer, president of Everett Community College, is this year’s recipient of the Henry M. Jackson award, which is given to someone who shows “exemplary service to the community and is committed to the business interests of the region,” according to the Economic Alliance Snohomish County. The award will be presented at the EASC’s seventh annual and celebration May 17 at the Tulalip Resort Casino. Beyer said he prefers to stay out of the spotlight and doesn’t necessarily seek recognition. “I’d rather see other people get it and get the attention they deserve,” he said. “But I’m very appreciative. I’m a history major and I appreciate the history of Henry Jackson and what he did for this area and the things he stood for. “I work with a talented group of people who make a lot of good things happen for the students here, but also for the people in this region.” Beyer’s tenure at Everett Community College has been a period of tremendous growth. The school opened the Advanced Manufacturing Training and Education Center, a hub for workforce training and development, in 2014. Two years later, the college launched a manufacturing training program in Arlington.

From previous page Arlington Mayor Barb Tolbert noted in her nomination of Beyer that he has shown “responsiveness to our business community” by addressing the need for a skilled workforce. Beyer said it’s easier for the college to adapt to the changing needs of the community when it partners with local businesses and organizations. “It influences what we do and how we go about doing things,” he said. “Anybody who works here has some connection with the community, and they bring it back and it becomes part of the fabric of who we are and what we do.” Beyer is also in the process of expanding the college’s health care programs and strengthening partnerships with local K-12
schools. “We want to create pathways from their schools into our programs for the people who choose to come here,” he said. EvCC students then have a pathway to four-year institutions if they choose to continue their education. Beyer has pushed for equity on campus and outreach to communities that the college may have previously overlooked. He created the position of chief diversity and equity officer to provide leadership on inclusion, part of the school’s goal of making a college education accessible to everyone in the community. “It’s making sure that we all have an equitable place to start from so we can experience self-fulfillment and economic mobility,” he said. “Most people are striving … to improve their lives for themselves and
their families.” Beyer’s favorite time of the school year is graduation, when he gets to see an audience full of smiling people. He’s overseen numerous graduation ceremonies since he became a college president in 1994, and he always leaves them with a smile on his face. Beyer said there are a lot of courageous people at Everett Community College who work hard to achieve their dreams. Implementation of the college’s strategic plan — developed with input from the community — would bring more of those hard-working people to campus. “There are places that we need to be in the community, and we’re going to find ways to get there,” he said. “We have the partners and the talent here to make some good things happen for more individuals than what we have been doing.”

FLUKE AWARD WINNER
Helping cancer patients — and the community By Jocelyn Robinson
For the Herald Business Journal
lay Siegall was 19 when his father was diagnosed with cancer. Siegall was a pre-med student with plans to become a medical doctor.
Watching his father’s treatment put Siegall on a different career path. “When you’re 19 years old and your father is diagnosed with a cancer that would ultimately take his life, there’s a lot of changes going on at that point,” Siegall said. “I got really interested in how cancer therapies are made.” His father died when Siegall was 24. Siegall went to graduate school and earned a doctorate in molecular genetics. He has since dedicated his career to making therapies for cancer patients. For 20 years, he’s been the CEO of Seattle Genetics, a biotechnology firm in Bothell. See NEXT PAGE

Siegall is the recipient of this year’s John M. Fluke award, which is given to an “individual who has demonstrated entrepreneurial spirit, and community leadership,” according the Economic Alliance Snohomish County. Established in 1970, the award is named after the founder of the Fluke Corp. The award will be presented at the EASC’s seventh annual meeting and awards celebration May 17 at the Tulalip Resort Casino. “I think it’s a fantastic acknowledgement of the work that has been going on with me and all my colleagues at Seattle Genetics, so I will accept on behalf of my company,” Siegall said. Siegall was working for Bristol-Myers Squibb when the company transferred him to manage a facility it had purchased in the Seattle area. Six years later, the pharmaceutical company closed the facility, but Siegall decided to stay in Seattle. “My family fell in love with this area,” Siegall said. “And I had some of ideas of my
own of the type of targeted cancer therapies that I thought were the next wave that could really help patients, and I wanted to pursue my own ideas.” Siegall founded Seattle Genetics, and the company has grown dramatically in the 20 years since. The lead product is a drug called Adcetris, which is now available in 71 countries, Siegall said. The drug helps treat cancer patients with Hodgkin lymphoma. Earlier this year, Seattle Genetics acquired Cascadian Therapeutics, a Seattle-based company that is developing a drug to treat breast cancer. Eight months ago, Seattle Genetics purchased a manufacturing facility in the North Creek area that was previously owned by BristolMyers Squibb. There were 73 employees at the facility when Seattle Genetics bought it, and 72 stayed on, Siegall said. “I’m very proud of that,” he said. Siegall’s commitment to the community extends beyond his employees. He helped develop a paid internship program that will have 64 students working for the company this summer. Depending on their
majors, interns could work in a variety of roles, from doing research in chemistry and biology labs to helping the company’s attorneys to working with the financial team, Siegall said. “I think it’s really important to play a role in helping out young people and getting them established in careers,” he said. The company has also donated to food banks and other organizations, sponsored the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center on the annual Obliteride fund-raising bike ride, and supports the local chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Siegall said he’s fortunate that Seattle Genetics has the funds and “a lot of smart people” to make an impact on patients’ lives. “We’re trying to make a difference in the lives of cancer patients and that’s been my focus for as long as I’ve been an adult,” he said. “I don’t take for granted that I am in a unique situation to really help out patients in need. “ “It’s amazing when you see the patients and see the impact of our therapies on these patients.”

Titan to the Titanic
Stockton Rush, OceanGate CEO, in front of Titan last month in Everett.
OceanGate is testing a sub that can reach the famous 12,500-feet-deep wreck PHOTOS BY ANDY BRONSON / The Herald
By Jocelyn Robinson
For The Herald Business Journal
hen Stockton Rush was a kid, he wanted to be an astronaut exploring the unknowns of space. About 15 years ago, he realized there were still unknown spaces to explore here on Earth. Among them were the depths of the Atlantic Ocean — and the world’s most famous shipwreck. Rush is the co-founder and CEO of OceanGate, an Everett-based company that pushes ocean exploration and research. OceanGate is now testing its latest submersible, Titan. The sub will take Rush and his clients to the bottom of the Atlantic and allow them an up close look at the wreck of the RMS Titanic. The ship sank on its maiden voyage in 1912 after colliding
with an iceberg in the north Atlantic. OceanGate’s previous submersible was Cyclops I, which was used to explore the wreck of the Andrea Doria off Nantucket Island in Massachusetts. Cyclops I had a 1-inch-thick steel hull and was able to dive to a depth of 500 meters, or about 1,640 feet. To dive 12,500 feet to reach the Titanic, OceanGate needed a submersible that would be able to withstand the pressure at that depth. Enter Titan. Titan has a 5-inch-thick carbon fiber hull, and 3 1/4-inch titanium hemispheres on either end that serve as the crew’s access hatches. It can dive up to 4,000 meters or more than 13,000 feet, and withstand more than 160 million pounds of pressure, Rush said. Titan is undergoing test trials in Puget Sound as an OceanGate crew tests its
buoyancy, how fast it can move up and down, as well as other systems — sonar, cameras, lighting, laser scanners and more. “There’s a lot of components, the vast majority of which don’t care whether you’re 10 feet underwater or 10,000,” Rush said. “So we can test all of that here and if we have problems, maybe we can solve all that locally.” Titan will finish testing in Puget Sound during the first part of April, then the crew will move on to deep-water testing in the Bahamas. “We need to get to 4,000 meters, and to do that off the coast of Washington, we have to go 300 miles out to sea,” Rush said. “To do that in the Bahamas, it’s 15 miles.” In addition to testing the Titan, OceanGate will also test a custom launch platform made by Burlington-based Everest Marine. The 11-ton aluminum
platform was designed specifically for OceanGate’s subs — the launch platform and the sub create an integrated system that can be lowered under water together. In the past, ships needed an A-frame or a crane to launch and recover manned subs. The launch platform is like a barge that is towed behind the ship, Rush said. Crews can transfer to the sub from the main ship on a light Zodiac boat instead of a heavy boat with the potential to injure someone. “We sink (the platform) and then sub leaves from where it’s nice and calm out of the waves so you don’t join these heavy objects on the surface,” he said. The advantage of the custom launch platform is that OceanGate can use almost any local ship that’s available, cutting down on expenses.

MAY 2018 THE HERALD BUSINESS JOURNAL 9
From previous page Crews can launch Titan by flooding the platform’s ballast tanks and submerging the unit about 30 feet under water. Once beneath the rough waves common in open water, the sub will lift off the platform and begin the dive. Submerging the launch platform and sub together reduces the risk of danger to the crew, Rush said. In rough seas, a submersible trying to launch from an A-frame or
crane can swing at a different rate than the ship is moving. This can increase the danger to the crew, Rush said. “The worst place in the world is between the sea and the air,” Rush said. Jim Nagel of Everest Marine said creating the launching platform with OceanGate was a spepcial opportunity. “We couldn’t be prouder of this project and the opportunity it provides for the advancement of ocean exploration,” Nagel said in a press release.
The deep dives in the Bahamas will also allow the company to test the surface support systems and other logistics, including transporting the equipment, and loading and unloading the submersible crew. After the tests in the Bahamas, Rush hopes to dive to the Titanic in June. Rush’s interest in developing a deepwater submersible began with a cold-water scuba dive at Nanaimo in 2003. He enjoyed the dive, but didn’t enjoy wearing all the
gear that came with it. Rush looked into renting a sub, but discovered that wasn’t really an option. Digging a little deeper, Rush thought he found a market among travelers looking for experiences off the beaten path. “Maybe there will be an area where you could find affluent individuals who wanted to participate in ocean research and exploration,” he said. “That was the genesis of

Making a workforce Sea-Lect embraces apprenticeships to create a pool of skilled employees By Adam Worcester
For The Herald Business Journal
Matt Poischbeg had a problem. A veteran mold maker was about to retire from Everett’s Sea-Lect Plastics, and its vice president and general manager could not find a replacement. Poischbeg advertised everywhere. He even hired a headhunter. Nothing. Mold-making is critical for Sea-Lect, which uses plastic injection to produce millions of parts for kayaks, Navy ships and other vessels. It’s not a stretch to say the company’s future hung in the balance. “I was in a panic mode,” Poischbeg said. Desperate, he embraced a familiar solution: apprentices. “I’m from Germany,” he explained. “I know apprenticeships work.” Four years later, they seem to be working
well indeed. The State Department of Labor & Industries hooked Poischbeg up with the Aerospace Joint Apprenticeship Committee, a state-funded nonprofit that offers apprenticeships in the aerospace and advanced-manufacturing industries. Now Sea-Lect employs five AJAC apprentices, who work full time and attend training classes; the company also has a youth apprentice at Snohomish High School. Three other apprentices began the training but left the program for various reasons. “I don’t think enough people know about apprenticeship programs,” said Rob Ferguson, a Sea-Lect journeyman toolmaker who mentors two apprentices and teaches AJAC classes at Glacier Peak and Arlington high schools. “There’s a lot of

Not just a job, but a career.” For students, who can begin training as young as 16, AJAC apprenticeships provide a full-time job with benefits, plus four hours of classes a week. For Sea-Lect, apprenticeships provide potential longterm workers at low initial cost.
Apprentices begin at 60 percent of the average state journeyman level wage for their trade, and get pay increases every six months until they reach full-time salary. (The national average annual salary for all manufacturing workers is about $77,000, according to 2016 data from the

Manufacturing Extension Partnership.) AJAC pays tuition throughout the fouror five-year apprenticeship programs. SeaLect reimburses other school fees, paying students about $270 apiece per semester if they maintain high grades. At the end of their training, the former apprentices can join Sea-Lect as full-salaried workers, if they choose. But, like free-agent athletes, they are free to test the market. “Most people say, ‘I’m just training people for my competition,’” Poischbeg said. “But if everybody trains, we all benefit. The Everett and Snohomish school districts are among six in the state that offer apprenticeship opportunities for high school students. So does the Sno-Isle Tech Skills Center, which serves students from 14 local school districts. Nathan Hall, a 2017 Snohomish High School graduate, began apprenticing at Sea-Lect eight months ago. He just finished making his first mold. “I was pretty excited to get to do something new every day, something challenging every day,” Hall said. “There’s a lot of math, a lot of thinking inside out. This makes school seem easy.” Brett Muller, a third-year tool-and-die maker apprentice, chose Sea-Lect over an
electrician apprenticeship. “It was a better option. ‘What do you have to lose?’ is the way I look at it,” he said. “Would you like to earn money and learn a job at the same time? If it dries up tomorrow, I won’t lose anything.” Asked if he’d like to work at Sea-Lect when his apprenticeship ends, Muller said, “maybe.” It’s a risk his boss is willing to take. Poischbeg cites a study by Stefan Wolter of the University of Bern that shows most companies experience a net zero cost to train apprentices. Higher employer costs the first half of the apprenticeship are offset by higher worker productivity during the second half. Apprenticeships could even prove profitable, the study claims, because apprentices perform better work as they gain skills, while their salaries remain below market value until the end of their apprenticeships. And if employees wind up hiring their apprentices, it reduces turnover and promotes loyalty. “It’s a different mindset,” said Poischbeg, 54, who served a pair of apprenticeships in Germany before attending college at age 29. “There’s no guarantee someone is going to stay forever, but that hasn’t held me back from investing.” Poischbeg pitches in more than money. He speaks frequently about apprenticeships

at industry conferences and in TEDx videos, and serves on a local committee to promote STEM education. Eventually, he said, he would like to see U.S. schools offer dual-track college and vocational degree programs, modeled after Europe.
“Our workforce is aging. Our skills shortage is not going to go away,” Poischbeg said. “We have a problem, and we have to fix the problem now. We need to build on this.”

Return policy speaks volumes about values, strategy
JAMES MCCUSKER ECONOMICS 101
My friend was working the morning shift one day and a woman shopper came in to return a man’s shirt that she said was a gift and didn’t fit. When looking at the item, though, it was obvious that not only had it be worn, but someone had cut the sleeves with scissors to make a short-sleeved shirt out of it. He told the customer that the store could not accept the return. The woman demanded to see the store manager. My friend took the shirt in to his supervisor to explain why he had declined the return. The supervisor nodded, and said, “Give her full credit for it.” In The Bon’s market, the potential negatives outweighed the costs of issuing the credit. Just recently, the L.L. Bean company received some blowback from its decision to place some limits on its previously open-ended customer-return policy. That policy had no time limits and essentially said that any time a customer became dissatisfied with a product’s
performance, that was reason enough to accept the return. The roots of L.L. Bean’s return policy are found in the company’s history and its customer base. The company began with a product disaster. Its first, and at that time only, product was a waterproof boot — the “duck boots” still made and sold by the firm. Unfortunately, “waterproof” they were not, due to a manufacturing defect. Leon Leonwood Bean knew his customer base and decided to return 100 percent of each customer’s money. Standing behind a product to that extent raised — actually, created — the company’s reputation in its actual and potential customer base. It also launched Leon’s practice of personally testing every product the company sold. There are some valuable lessons in L.L. Bean’s recent experience with its return policy, as well as in the history of policies in other companies. The first lesson is that, just as with
etail sales are big business — over $3.5 trillion last year. Customer returns are big business, too; about $350 billion last year. About 5 percent of those returns are probably fraudulent, according to current estimates. At over $17 billion it’s big business, also. Much of that fraud originates by stretching or cheating customer service policies. As an example, a friend of mine had once worked as a salesman in the men’s clothing section of The Bon Marche, the now-defunct department store which was then, and is in memory still, an icon of downtown shopping in Seattle. Long before Nordstrom became famous for its story, possibly apocryphal, of accepting a customer’s return of an automobile tire return (Nordstrom doesn’t even sell tires), the Bon had a return policy that was famous among shoppers for its liberal interpretations and customer care.
food, presentation is important. L.L .Bean’s changes to its return policy are not unreasonable and it is still very accommodating to customers. Unfortunately, that part was lost in the dust-up over changing the open-ended return and the proofof-purchase requirement. Those elements unnecessarily dominated the company’s message and could, instead, have been minimized by rethinking and rewriting the message before it went public. The second lesson is: Don’t let your reaction to a few chiselers drive company policy or poison your relationship with your customers. The best companies have the best customer service. Period. The third lesson is that customer service is an expensive place to find the funds to cover a poor sales year or to underwrite an expansion. There is a right, winning return policy to fit every business, and managers can find it by knowing, understanding and respecting its customer base.

Port of Everett, Washington State University’s School of Food Science Partner to Welcome the Center for Advanced Food Technology to Waterfront Place In mid-April, Washington State University’s (WSU) School of Food Science (SFS) took occupancy at the Port of Everett’s Waterfront Place in its newly leased office and classroom spaces – home for the School of Food Science’s Center for Advanced Food Technology. The new three-year lease, approved by the Port Commission in February, supports a new Center of Excellence around food and seafood processing sponsored by a collaboration between two universities – Washington State University and the University of Idaho. The lease includes approximately 4,800 square feet of office space at the Port’s Marina Village complex (near Anthony’s Homeport) and additional classroom capacity at the Port’s Conference Center for weekly courses, symposiums and lectures. The deal provides five, one-year extension options in its current structure with opportunities for future expansion. "The vision of supporting the growth of the food processing industry in this region a reality,” said Dr. Barbara Rasco, Director of the School of Food Science. “We are excited about this opportunity to collaborate with the Port of Everett in this innovative partnership and look forward to developing a more permanent facility at the Port to house our outreach, academic and research efforts as part of the land grant mission of WSU and the University of Idaho. These efforts will result in significant economic benefit to the people of Everett, Snohomish County, and the Pacific Northwest.” The Port of Everett provides a strategic location for expansion of the School of Food Science program as its centrally located at the heart of Puget Sound’s agriculture and fisheries hub. Snohomish County’s agriculture industry represents $139 million dollars in economic activity with more than 50,000 acres in agriculture production and 1,438 farms. Further, food processing in Snohomish County is a $280 million industry responsible for 1,447 jobs.
and processed. Washington state ranks first in the nation for aquaculture as reported by the State Department of Agriculture – the majority of which is in Western Washington – and Idaho ranks third. Although the food/seafood sector is doing well, the sector lacks a stable workforce and is experiencing severe labor shortages despite relatively high wages. In response, companies are turning to process automation resulting in fewer jobs, but jobs requiring increased skills. One objective of this center is to provide education and research to assist with this modernization. “This program is emblematic of the type of partnership key to the Port’s success in achieving its economic mission, and we hope this program is the first of many to come as we seek to leverage the presence of a world-class university in Everett to benefit the local economy,” said Terrie Battuello, the Port’s Chief of Business Development. “This Center of Excellence will prepare our community for family-wage employment while generating business startups in the agriculture and seafood industries; industries which are both significant to the Snohomish County area.” This prestigious collaboration is known for providing the highest quality education, research, and outreach in the applied disciplines of food and seafood processing. It ranks among the top tier of United States university food science programs, with programs ranging from running start to graduate degrees that support entrepreneurs, food producers and community enrichment programs.

OCEANGATE, From Page 9 OceanGate.” Rush calls his clients “mission specialists,” and each one will have a role to play in gathering research during the dives to the Titanic. The last manned submersible explored the wreck in 2005; a 2010 dive using autonomous underwater vehicles mapped the wreck and its debris field. Rush hopes that the technology on Titan will deliver more detail of the wreck than was possible eight years ago. This includes using multiple 4K cameras, a laser scanner
and 50,000 lumens of external light. Titan also features a steering system that uses a standard PlayStation controller. Mission specialists on dives will get a chance to steer the sub, Rush said. “Once I get to the bottom, I can teach you to drive it in about 30 seconds,” he said. Rush hopes repeated dives in the submersible will document the decay of the Titanic year after year, discover new marine life and possibly find artifacts in the ship’s debris field. “I think every dive will be full of many new discoveries,” he said.

Veterans gain experience on eco-friendly projects
MILITARY APPRECIATION MONTH
By Rikki King
Are you a veteran interested in conservation? For internship information, contact Kim Pham at email@example.com.
This October 2017 article has been updated and is being republished in recognition of Military Appreciation Month.

Taylor Pesce installs a rain barrel at Experience Momentum in Lynnwood last fall. Pesce works with other veterans in a group that completes projects for the Snohomish Conservation District.
Thank you to our military personnel and their family for their sacrifice while serving our country so we can continue to exercise our freedom.
EVERETT — Chris Rodriguez was used to working on a team in all kinds of weather. Rodriguez, 38, of Everett, served six years with the U.S. Marine Corps. His time in the military left him with health challenges that limited his career options. Then he joined a crew on the Washington Conservation Corps, which partners with the publicly funded Snohomish Conservation District. Derek Hann, a design engineer with the district, noticed that Rodriguez and another veteran excelled at the work. The focus is on eco-friendly projects that retain and filter stormwater, such as rain gardens and rain barrels. In some cases,
local governments or private property owners pay for the materials, and the crews provide labor. “It’s a lot of digging,” Hann said. “It’s a lot of earth work. It’s a lot of pipe work.” It took Hann a couple of years to turn his idea into action. He helped the district launch a Veteran Conservation Corps crew through the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs. The crew members are interns with monthly stipends starting at $2,000. The funding comes from district revenues, including those related to stormwater projects, grants, and significant support

From previous page from The Boeing Co. The district also has received grants to help other businesses with stormwater retrofits, a Lawns to Lettuce program and employee engagement. The work experience is beneficial, but the veterans also get to see the real-time results of their labor, said Rodriguez, a crew supervisor. He cited as examples saplings growing and salmon spawning. The program alleviates the sense that some veterans have of being left behind in civilian life, he said. “It’s the best therapy you can get …,” he said. “Everything we’re learning here is something we can take and build upon. I’ve learned all the math I can use in the world now unless I become an engineer.” The world is moving toward a greener future, Rodriguez said. He thinks about gardens and stormwater, and the way that lives also get reorganized and change from season to season. Homeowners who’ve hired the vet crew later send him pictures to keep in touch, along with invitations to barbecues. Assistant crew lead Taylor Pesce, 33, of Lake Stevens, also served in the Marines. On Oct. 11, the team helped install rain
barrels at Experience Momentum, a physical therapy business in Lynnwood. “It’s the kind of work I like to do, outside, work that has a purpose, something that has a function to it,” Pesce said. Since leaving the military, Pesce earned an associate’s degree in environmental science at Everett Community College. He has been considering a career in education. The district invited him to participate in outreach efforts in classrooms, as part of his internship. “It just worked out perfectly,” he said.

Conservation partner of the year The Snohomish Conservation District has recognized the Washington Department of Veterans Affairs as its Conservation Partner of the Year, reflecting the district’s inclusion of veterans on staff through its Veterans Conservation Corps program. The district’s citation, presented April 12, said veterans “act as boots on the ground with partners across the region. They have inspired residents across Puget Sound to see that a country worth defending is worth preserving.”

Kim Pham, Veterans Conservation Corps internship coordinator, accepts the Snohomish Conservation District’s partnership award April 12 from Cameron Coronado, district community conservation project coordinator. The partnership has allowed the conservation district not only to give back to communities through low impact development projects, which help with water quality and quantity issues, but also to give back
to veterans by offering professional and personal development and growth. Kim Pham from the Washington Department of Veterans Affairs accepted the award.

Each and every one of us is an original. Shaped by unique influences that make us who we are today. Here at Heritage Bank, we think differences can build a better bank, too. That’s why we share the best ideas from across all of our branches and local communities with one goal in mind: to serve our customers better every day. By sharing our strengths, we’re able to offer customers like Mike Morse—and you—more than a community bank. But rather, a community oƒ banks.
