Newport Shipyard Personality: Rich Wilkinson
Rich Wilkinson has worked at Newport Shipyard for over 20 years in a multitude of capacities. He is everyone's go to person for troubleshooting everything from faulty webcams to "my phone doesn't work" to "Rich, how do we get the permits for..."
"Ask Rich" is probably the most oft-spoken phrase at One Washington Street. His low-key manner belies the array of talents he brings. In fact he is so low-key that he managed to get married recently without any fanfare. It only came out because someone asked him what he was going to do on the upcoming weekend, to which he casually answered that he was getting married.. His wife, Rocio and his step-son, David, have become welcome and familiar faces at the Shipyard.
