Michael Bobker – with the steady leadership of CIUS Director Buz Paaswell (CIUS is BPL’s parent organization) – began BPL as a one-man operation in 2006. It’s something of an understatement to say we’ve grown quite a bit since then.
As of 2021, Honey Berk has assumed the role of Executive Director of BPL while Michael Bobker has become Founding Executive Director. Our Training Department alone has 12 full-time senior and junior staff members and 15-20 interns at a time. When including staff from our other departments, those numbers more than double.
