EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT: Calvin Fidler

Extraordinary climber, dedicated Cancer Research supporter…

The Vesta Employee Spotlight is dedicated to our extraordinary coworkers who exemplify the true values of Vesta.

Meet Calvin Fidler, a Senior Consultant from Jackson Hole, Wyoming who joined the Vesta North America team over 5 years ago. Prior to Vesta, Calvin was a Director of SAP R&D for a “Powered by SAP NetWeaver” product (the Peak Automation control).

Calvin’s continuous involvement and support of cancer research inspires us all, and that is why we dedicated this Vesta Employee Spotlight post to Mr. Fidler.

Family Life:

Most interesting place you have visited:

At my peak traveling, I filled up 2 passports (with extra pages) in just 15 years. Not many places I haven’t been. I go to Fontainebleau France every year for rock climbing and Switzerland for mountain biking. Thailand last year for SCUBA diving was amazing. Istanbul Turkey (work) was very interesting, but by far the most interesting was Russia. The difference in culture and the warmth of the people is amazing. 

One thing you can’t live without:

My TV. But can’t figure out how to turn it on.

Favorite type of food:

If you know me you know the answer. Sushi from the Sushi den! The best Sushi restaurant in the world and I have been to most!

Favorite quote:

There are two:

Thomas Jefferson “I have nothing but contempt for anyone who can spell a word only one way”

Albert Einstein “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”

Favorite sports team(s):

I don’t watch sports, I do sports. I have a TV but lost the remote about seven months ago and can’t figure out how to turn it on.

My favorite athlete: Alex Puccio (The Beast) a world cup rock climber that I climb with at the Heart and Souls climbing completion every year to benefit cancer research.

Last book you read:

Steven Hawking’s Black Holes and baby universe. It’s a typical Hawking book, seams to be simple. While you are reading, you think that you get it, but when you are asked to explain it…. Ammmm Ammmmmm!

I am currently reading “The Plastic Coated Leaf” by Robert Watts Jr. A book of short stories and poems. We have all sat next to some wild character on a plane to or from somewhere. A few months ago I sat next to Robert on a flight, WOW! Ex NFL football player, Boston College football hall of fame and Doctor Psy.D.

 

Hobbies:

This falls into two categories, sports and home stuff.

Sports: Rock climbing, mountain biking, skiing, running, adventure racing, kayaking and SCUBA diving.

Home: Wood working and my 3200 sq. foot vegetable garden (Food for the year).

Favorite TV Shows:

I lost my remote years ago (Sports)

Top 3 things on your bucket list:

I have climbed Denali in Alaska and a lot of the big peaks in the Canadian Rockies like Robson and Edith Cavell. I did the nose of El Capitan (With ropes not like Alex Honnold) I have traveled the world for work and fun. The only thing remaining is to walk the Camino Santiago de Compostela.

Community Involvement:

For the past 4 years I have been competing and donating to a climbing competition for cancer research. It is run by Fred Hutchinson cancer research center and is called Hears and Souls climbing competition. This event is put on by my small local climbing gym in Colorado and raises about $15k per year for cancer research. There are big cooperate sponsors donating $2k to $3K each. But the majority of the donations are from the local climber.

We have all been affected by cancer in one form or another (friends, loved ones or even our self’s). Its only money and I have made a point over the past few years to be the largest donor, hoping that it will encourage others to donate as well. Last year Vesta was a cooperate sponsor and helped with the donation – Thanks to all of you!
