About Bobby Herrera:
Bobby believes that everyone deserves an opportunity to succeed and is an unwavering champion for the underdog. He’s co-founder and CEO of Populus Group — one of the fastest-growing HR services companies in the United States with annual revenue of $500 million and many Fortune 100 customers. As one of thirteen children in a migrant family, he learned the value of hard work, rising early and putting in long hours in the fields. After high school, boot camp became his ticket of opportunity. He serves on national community organization boards and is a regular speaker at corporations and service groups. He is a proud Army veteran. Bobby is most proud of his family — his wife Roslyn and their three children Santino, Griffith, and Sofia live in Portland, Oregon.
