In 1983 Bob Funk and Bill Stoller founded Express Employment Professionals with a determination to do business differently. Profits aren't the only measure of success. When good people find good jobs, individuals, businesses and communities succeed together. This culture of caring is at the heart of every leadership decision at Express, from our international headquarters to your local office.

He completed his graduate studies at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, and received his master's degree in business administration and theology from SPU. He holds three honorary degrees: an honorary doctorate of public service from SPU, awarded in 1995; an honorary doctorate of law presented by Oklahoma Baptist University in 2000; and an honorary doctorate of law presented by Southern Nazarene University in 2001.
