I'm not a relative, or even a close friend of Don Bently, but he has made a lasting impact on my life.
Bently's contributions to the oil, gas and power generation industries are significant in terms of helping customers in those spaces more efficiently use our limited resources.
Beyond turning an expertise in vibration into world-class machine protection systems and a profitable business, Bently left a legacy: hundreds of jobs in the Carson Valley and around the world.
Bently enabled me to develop professionally in an inspiring industry ... while living in this amazing valley with world class skiing, biking, boating, and outdoor recreation ... the perfect balance between life and work.
Thus, I thank God daily for this life/work balance and the opportunity Bently created over five decades ago.
