Most Admired CEO Awards

The Most Admired CEO Awards is an annual event that recognizes local industry leaders for their achievements within their companies and in the San Diego community. Winners and finalists are lauded for demonstrating determination and insight, yielding huge successes for their organizations, and driving the local economy.

This year’s winners were selected among 149 finalists by an independent panel of judges, who ranked nominations based on CEOs’ contributions to their companies and community, with an emphasis on financial growth, leadership, and innovation.

SDBJ highlighted Eastridge Workforce Solutions’ financial achievements under Bob’s leadership, including the growth in revenue following the company’s rebrand in January 2015. Bob’s community involvement was also highlighted through his founding of the Forget Me Not Foundation, which has delivered thousands of bouquets, made up of over half a million flowers, to local nursing homes and long-time care facilities since its founding in 2010.

With over 40 years of industry experience, Eastridge Workforce Solution’s growth continues to be bolstered by the innovation of its service offerings, including the recent addition of the Scientific Division to meet the demands of San Diego’s life sciences industry. The company’s growth, diversification, and success have driven substantial job creation in the San Diego community alone.

Bob started Eastridge Workforce Solutions in 1972, formerly known as The Eastridge Group of Staffing Companies, and has grown the San Diego based company from 3 full-time employees to approximately 300.

Bob has instilled his personal values into company values, leading an organization to deliver its best with uncommon creativity, commitment, integrity, and communication. Eastridge Workforce Solutions’ purpose is to provide people with opportunity and enrichment through work—a purpose that Bob wholeheartedly supports and lives out in his everyday life.

Beyond the company’s revenue, there are 300 employees who have been encouraged, fostered, and inspired by the company’s values, all of which Bob personally upholds.
