Bob Klotz – CEO
“Work hard, do what you say and have a plan.”
These are Bob’s secrets to success. As Bayside’s CEO, he is responsible for leading the development and execution of the company’s long-term strategy. Seventeen years of experience in the staffing industry has taught Bob that trust and honesty are essential to every successful relationship.
After graduating Chico State University, Bob worked for a national staffing service provider as a recruiter and account executive. He founded Bayside in 2001 based on one principle – relationship-based recruiting. Bob’s focus as CEO of Bayside is to ensure that the Bayside team provides the highest level of service for consultants and clients.
Bob’s take on today’s staffing industry:
“I think today’s staffing environment is rapidly changing and consistently becoming harder to navigate for candidates and firms like Bayside. We see more systems and processes being adopted by our larger clients with no consistency. Each firm has their own way of onboarding and how they do business.
“We have seen many firms start to use vendor management systems, which can be very useful in streamlining the hiring process and managing compliance. As a provider, our challenge is to manage the additional layer of communication. We ensure that nothing is lost between what our customer is looking for, the information available to the candidate or firms like Bayside from the vendor management company.
“Bottom line, we’re in a people business. To have a successful placement, the communication among us, our customer and potential consultant is critical.”
Dave Rampa – Chief Sales Officer
Dave oversees the strategic planning, development and growth of the IT, Software Engineering and Telecommunication business units. With more than 15 years in the IT consulting industry, Dave has extensive experience in both business development and management. His widespread knowledge of a business strategy and how technology enables companies to reach their maximum potential creates a true partnership between Bayside Solutions and their customers.
As the former vice president of our IT, Software Engineering & Telecom Division, Dave was responsible for the management and growth of our strategic partnerships with large and national organizations. Through his experience, Dave understands the complexities surrounding business processes and the importance that creativity plays in the successful delivery of technology solutions.
Prior to becoming vice president, Dave served as the Executive Director of Sales for Bayside Solutions. Before joining our team, Dave worked for large national IT recruiting and consulting firm for eight years as a senior account manager and was part of their executive leadership program. Dave is a graduate of Sacramento State University where he holds a B.S. in Business Administration – Strategic Management.
Dave’s take on today’s staffing industry:
“A flexible workforce is more important today than ever. The costs involved in hiring and retaining full-time, permanent employees is continuing to rise. Having the flexibility to scale their workforce, based on project demand, is critical for companies to remain nimble in today’s competitive environment.”
Arnoldo Avila – Senior Director, Clinical & Scientific
Arnoldo is responsible for building the Clinical & Scientific Division by identifying and breaking new accounts, as well as interviewing, hiring and training new recruiters.
He learned a lot during the eight years he spent working for a large international staffing firm. Now here at Bayside, he’s using his knowledge and experience to build a successful recruiting division that values building strong relationships with each client and candidate.
Arnoldo views Bayside as the conduit connecting two parties and making sure each walks away from every interaction with a positive experience. He enjoys the challenge of identifying client needs, and then using relationship-based recruiting to identify the right professional for the job.
Arnoldo’s take on today’s staffing industry:
“In the recruiting industry, there exists a war for talent. We are seeing a number of the baby boomers that are retiring and there is not enough talent to back fill these spots. We are also pulling out of a major recession, so we have a number of candidates that are in the job force.
“On the other side of the equation, our industry has become inundated with agencies. Bayside has truly raised the bar, with a relationship-based recruiting philosophy that ensures we get to know each candidate as an individual. Most of the competition spends their time working job boards and submitting those candidates. We focus our attention on the true essence of recruiting through providing exceptional service and garnering high-quality referrals.”

Jevon continues to progress his passion for building productive business teams and his enthusiasm for getting a job well done.
Jevon’s take on today’s staffing industry:
“There is a healthy demand for staffing suppliers in today’s marketplace and no shortage of suppliers to meet that demand. While the business has evolved and changed over the years, the business need for strong partnerships continues to exists. A providers ability to foster those relationships into partnerships is a clear competitive advantage in today’s landscape.”
