Team Member 25 Year Anniversaries

Bhate Geosciences (BHATE) proudly congratulates two team members that are celebrating their 25th anniversary with our firm – Jennifer Rankin and Jim Wall.

Jennifer Rankin, Accounts Receivable Specialist, joined BHATE to work in our Construction Materials Testing department through a co-op program while a senior at Hewitt Trussville High School.  Jennifer shined in her project administration role and was asked to join our Accounting department.  Her responsibilities include employee time and expense data entry, reviewing time and budgets on projects, invoicing, collections and assisting with accounts payable.

Outside of work, Jennifer enjoys being with her family and friends taking weekend road trips, fishing and hiking.  Jennifer and her husband Kevin have 2 daughters (Katie and Gracie) and 4 dogs, 3 chickens and 2 ducks.  She attended Jefferson State Community College.

Jim Wall is a Senior Steel Inspector at BHATE.  Jim is an American Welding Society Certified Welding Inspector (CWI) and is a certified Nondestructive Testing Technician Level II through the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) and an ICC Special Inspector.  Jim ensures that steel and welds used on our client’s projects are high quality, effective and up to standard with safety regulations.  He has deep experience in ultrasonic, magnetic particle and liquid penetrant forms of non-destructive testing of welds.

Jim enjoys playing golf and bass fishing and is a graduate and long-time football season ticket holder at the University of Georgia.  He enjoys returning to the UGA campus every fall to see old friends and classmates and also has English and French Bulldogs at home.

Thank you Jennifer and Jim for your dedication and service!
