Robert Cossaboon, Founder & CEO

rob-cossaboonRob Cossaboon is the founder and CEO of Skillforce, Inc. During his 20+ years of management, sales, and operations experience, he developed strong principles based on quality customer service and job site integrity—principles he has passed on to his management team and that guide his overall leadership and vision for the company.

Rob founded Skillforce with the goal to create a strong construction staffing company that encompassed two main themes: a team environment with strong leadership, and a business culture that inspired employees to strive to be their best.

Rob’s construction services management career took off in a 10-fold leap in 2000 when he built his previous company’s branch from the ground up as the general manager. He was responsible for personally hiring thousands of employees as well as growing his individual branch profits far beyond the company’s 8 other branches combined. Having personally built the relationships and business model, in 2003 Rob easily made the transition from employee to entrepreneur, successfully developing Skillforce into a seven-figure revenue stream in just the first 8 months of business.

Named a “Top 100 CEO” by SmartCEO magazine in 2007, Rob has grown Skillforce into the largest skilled construction staffing company in the Mid-Atlantic region, with offices now expanding throughout the country. Once cited in a publication as a “work hard, play hard entrepreneur,” Rob credits his success to building a strong team culture where client relationships come first.

Rob studied Business Administration at Virginia Commonwealth University from 1988 to 1992 and has sat on the Board of Directors for the Associated Builders and Contractors as well has held several key committee and charitable positions.
