Staff Spotlight: Bill Jarvis

Bill Jarvis is one of the newest members of our team here at Nomen Global. He is currently working in the International Recruiting Department with Latin American countries. He is fluent in Spanish and has years of experience with international business in Latin America. In fact, he has been to 15 different countries for business!

Bill graduated from Brigham Young University with a BA in Spanish and also received his Masters of Business Administration. He and his wife have raised bilingual children in English and Spanish. Bill was also recently featured on an BYU international radio program about raising bilingual children with two other Nomen Global employees.

Bill has been working with Nomen Global for just two months, but we already acknowledge his expertise and professionalism in the office. He strongly believes in treating everybody with respect, a skill that both our staff and our students appreciate. Bill believes that Nomen Global has the potential to grow internationally, and his goal is to help bring our philosophies to the world.

One of Bill's favorite things about English is the variety of strange and fun words in the language. For example, have you heard of the interesting collective nouns for lions, goldfish, turkeys, or crows? A group of lions is called a pride, a group of goldfish is called a charm, a group of turkeys is called a gang, and a group of crows is called a murder! Bill also gets a kick out of Winston Churchill's famous quote: "From now on, ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I shall not put." This quote makes fun of some of the strict rules that formal English used to have. Although we know now that ending a sentence with a preposition is perfectly acceptable, many grammar sticklers used to believe it was sinful to do so!

Some fun facts about Bill: He has finished 12 marathons, 52 triathlons, and 1 Ironman (so far!). Today is, in fact, Bill's birthday! We at Nomen Global are excited to have him here and are inspired by his great attitude and work ethic. Meet Bill and the other excellent staff members at Nomen Global!
