Southwest Creations Collaborative recently received a generous donation in honor of Robert William Vaio, the son of our longtime friends and supporters, Al and Rosemary Vaio. Our love and support are with the Vaio family as they mourn the loss of their dear son, husband and father. He will be missed.
Robert is survived by his wife of 20 years and three children. Robert was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico and later graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering from New Mexico State University. After graduating he worked for Conoco and later received a Masters in Business Administration degree from the University of Notre Dame. During his professional career in the oil and gas industry Robert was named Vice President of Global Supply Chain for Hess Corporation. He also worked for Conoco, Arthur Andersen, and BearingPoint.
