The Passing of Robert Svet — Eastridge’s Founder and Chairman

Eastridge Blog posted by Adam Svet on

I want to thank everyone who reached out to our family with words of comfort after Dad’s passing. Your kind support is a testament to the impact he had with his time in this world.


As many of you know, two years ago, my father was diagnosed with ALS. As with every challenge he faced in life, he approached it with boundless optimism and spirit until the day he passed.


My father loved Eastridge with all of his heart. Even during the toughest days of his illness, he looked forward to coming to the office and meeting with the people that form our company’s community.


He founded the company with a set of fundamental values. He placed integrity above all else, treated everyone with dignity, and worked tirelessly on behalf of our team and clients. He believed deeply in people’s goodness and potential. He demonstrated the most powerful form of leadership, which is leadership by example. He lived these values every day.


When we reflect on my Dad’s legacy, I suspect many of us feel the same way: we stand on the shoulders of a giant.


On behalf of my family and everyone at Eastridge, thank you for your warmth and friendship.
