Bob Koreski, Director of Operations
Bob brings over 25 years of operations and human resource management experience to Mahonia Public Affairs. As Director of Operations, Bob takes care of all things behind-the-scenes so the rest of our team can be your eyes and ears in Salem.
Bob began his lifetime commitment to public service as a combat medic before serving as an infantry officer in the U.S. Army 101st Airborne Division. Following his military service, Bob enjoyed serving as a 4-H Youth Development Director, where he had the opportunity to encourage youth creativity and craftsmanship. Before transitioning to Mahonia Public Affairs, Bob held a variety of operations-related positions at various state agencies.
Bob earned his undergraduate degree in economics at University of Idaho and holds a master’s degree in Organizational Development from the University of San Francisco. He has held Senior Human Resource Certifications since 2003 through the Human Resources Certification Institute and the Society of Human Resources Management.
In his free time, Bob enjoys officiating High School football — which keeps him busy every fall. Bob and Debbie live in Salem, Oregon and have raised three children: Clarence, Bo, and Annie. Bob loves spending time with his family, whether they’re traveling on a big trip across the country, visiting MLB baseball parks together, or spending a night at home playing gin rummy.
