Robert Hankin, Senior Vice President and Head of Management Information Systems for Roth Staffing Companies (the parent company of Ultimate Staffing), earned a Silver Stevie Award recognizing him as National I.T. Executive of the Year.
The American Business Awards, host of the annual Stevie Awards, selected Hankin as a Finalist for the IT Executive of the Year Award in May for his notable accomplishments driving Roth Staffing’s technological milestones while also having to act as interim Vice President of Finance & Accounting for the past year.
In 2013, Hankin’s many accomplished teams revamped Roth Staffing’s proprietary video interviewing technology, VideoSelect®, revolutionizing a groundbreaking project that Hankin had originally developed in 2001, and built a customized companywide sales dashboard from the ground up after realizing that no existing product met Roth Staffing’s internal needs, leading to double-digit increases in sales activity. Hankin also took the helm of several accounting and finance departments after an unexpected vacancy.
His comprehensive accomplishments led an independent panel of judges consisting of more than 150 executives and business professionals across multiple industries and geographies to name Hankin an IT Executive of the Year Finalist, and a separate group of impartial business leaders determined top winners. Hankin was one of only three executives nationwide to win IT Executive of the Year honors from the American Business Awards.
“Earning recognition as an IT Executive of the Year is quite an honor, not just for me, but for Roth Staffing Companies in general,” said Robert Hankin. “This award is a testament to the kind of award-winning culture that we’ve built within our organization, our consistent recognition as a creative leader in our industry, and our collective commitment to create technologies, products, and services that make life better for the people we serve.”
With his win as IT Executive of the Year, Hankin joins a slew of Roth Staffing coworkers honored by the American Business Awards, the most recent of which is Adam Roth, President & COO of Roth Staffing Companies who earned a Gold Stevie Award as Executive of the Year in the Business Services category, nabbing a spot previously occupied by the likes of Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple, and Lawrence Ellison, CEO of Oracle. Several of Hankin’s direct reports have previously received top Stevie Award honors including the 2009 Product Developer of the Year, 2013 Support Staffer (Business Analyst) of the Year, and 2013 Developer of the Year.
