I'm Rob Zarnetske, a decorated and forward-thinking leader with 27+ years of experience in public service, government administration, public policy development, and implementation. I'm a dedicated and community-driven professional who knows that excellent public service is only possible when public servants focus on the needs and well being of the people.
I've been lucky enough to build a career solving problems for real people using the leadership skills, critical thinking, and decision-making abilities I've developed along the way to promote a culture of inclusion, transparency & self-accountability.
As a professional, I like to think I possess the exceptional ability to quickly and correctly assess problems from both a strategic legal and business perspective to bring pragmatic solutions to complex civil issues. Throughout my career, I have a proven record of accomplishments at every level of government. My achievements are underpinned by three pillars: leadership, management, and innovation.
As a person, I am passionate about strengthening public institutions and civil society. I've become highly skilled at influencing behavior at all levels to improve civil performance and realize strategic goals. I build organizations like I build stone walls (the one on the home page is one of mine -- the star too). Success comes, not by forcing the stones; it comes by carefully looking to see what fits and then making the match.
