January 21, 2016, Orange, CA – Adam Roth was named the new CEO of Roth Staffing Companies, parent company of Ultimate Staffing, Roth Staffing is one of the largest staffing firms in the U.S. and is recognized as having the best work culture in the industry. The announcement was made by Ben Roth, Founder and Executive Chairman, to coworkers last week during a companywide town hall meeting.
“Some people are great leaders and others may be great managers – with the core activities of each of these roles being different. A few exceptionally talented individuals excel at both. Adam is one of those few,” said Ben during the company town hall. “It is one thing to have a vision… and another to have the ability to make that vision a reality. Adam has the vision and brings it to life.”
Adam, 34, will become only the second CEO in the organization’s 21 year history. Ben Roth, the person transitioning from the role of CEO, was very clear to point out in his announcement that he is not retiring, but rather will assume the role of Executive Chairman.
“Over the past few years, Adam has been performing more than 90% of the CEO role, and I cannot rave enough about what he has built and accomplished, with so much more to come,” said Ben.
Adam began his career with Roth Staffing in 2003 after graduating from the College of William & Mary. His first role was that of launching a new business line, Adams & Martin Group. Since then, the specialized legal staffing line has successfully and consistently experienced growth and its presence is well known in the legal community. Three years later, Adam became Chief Administrative Officer, and then, in 2008, was promoted to the role of the organization’s first President and Chief Operating Officer.

Additionally, Adam launched and championed Roth Staffing’s Purpose:full program for community giving in 2014. Since then, this program raised and donated more than 2 million meals to fight childhood hunger in America. In addition to this focus, in 2015, programs he introduced benefitted 112 non-profit organizations through donations as well as more than 10,000 hours of company-supported volunteer hours in local communities across the nation.
“Adam is the most gifted, natural leader that I have witnessed in my 35 years in this industry”, noted Ben Roth.” “Adam’s promotion allows the right person to guide our company into the future—together with the rest of the leadership and management team.
