Ultimate Leadership
Ultimate Staffing Services' phenomenal success can be directly attributed to our phenomenal Executive Team, comprised of the industry's most experienced leaders.
Ben Roth
Founder & CEO, Roth Staffing Companies, L.P.

Ben Roth has been in the staffing industry since about the same time that Moses introduced the Ten Commandments. And that is a good thing since Roth Staffing wouldn't exist if Ben never entered the industry.

Ben Roth is an industry leader who is recognized by Staffing Industry Analysts as one of Staffing's 100 Most Influential People. Ben authored Roth Staffing's Mission, Vision, and Values, and Purpose and Promise, creating the soul of Roth Staffing which is believed by many as the very best culture in the staffing industry.
  Ben is also known as an innovator who has pioneered programs that have shaped the industry. This may be best exemplified with the "on-premise" staffing model which he introduced to the industry in the early 1990s and now nearly a third of the total global staffing spend flows through this concept. More recently, he created the Ambassador Program®, which engages the hearts and minds of Ambassadors and enables us to fulfill the Roth Promise for our customers.

Ben's desire to create a company that was different and better, combined with fulfilling broader social responsibilities, led to unprecedented growth. In 1999, Roth Staffing was ranked by Inc. Magazine as the #1 fastest growing privately held company in the United States, growing 20,332% over a four-year period. Ben has been recognized by Ernst & Young as "Entrepreneur of the Year" for business services.
