Oregon needs job creators and career builders, something Rob has been doing successfully for nearly 20 years. Elections usually provide voters the opportunity to choose between two long-time politicians who don’t have real-world experience creating lasting jobs. This time, voters of the First Congressional District have an alternative. In this Special Election, we can choose between a career politician or a career builder.
In 1995, out of a spare bedroom in their house and using funds from their savings account, Rob and his wife Allison started a Tualatin-based business called Game Face Inc, which advises professional sports franchises on how to better serve their fans and customers. Rob turned his idea into one of the most influential consulting and executive training firms in the sports industry – worldwide. Game Face excels at helping organizations (including those in traditional industries like manufacturing, retail, professional services, etc) maximize their potential and bring measurable results to customers and clients.
Rob and Allison specifically chose to launch Game Face in Tualatin because of their love for their home state and the desire to raise a family here. Many in the sports industry questioned why he would headquarter his business in a state with so few professional sports franchises. Despite the fact that the majority of his clients are east of the Mississippi, Rob turned Game Face into a huge success, employing over 60 Oregonians in the process and bringing industry executives to Portland to enjoy the Oregon experience. Rob is running for Congress because he wants to ensure that other small business owners and entrepreneurs will be able to build successful companies here in Oregon.
No other person has been invited into more front offices of sports teams to improve their operations than Rob Cornilles. His experience seeing best – and worst – practices in the high-profile and heavily scrutinized world of sports is second to none. He and his company have advised and trained more than 30,000 executives in the pro and collegiate ranks since launching Game Face.
But more than that, Rob takes great pride in his role as a career-builder, having been the driving force behind the placement of more than 500 individuals into full-time sports jobs around the industry – many of whom had given up hope that they could find work in their chosen field. Game Face’s Executive Academy became a training and placement model that many private and public institutions have since tried to emulate.
Beyond his success in business, Rob is committed to building stronger and healthier communities here in Oregon. He serves on the Board of Directors of the Special Olympics of Oregon, the Oregon League of Minority Voters, the Japan-America Society of Oregon, Umpqua Bank Regional Division, and the Virginia Garcia Memorial Foundation. The Virginia Garcia Memorial Foundation assists in funding the Virginia Garcia Community Health Centers in Washington and Yamhill Counties which are dedicated to providing medical services to uninsured and low-income residents.
A graduate of BYU, Rob is a proud and active father in the lives of his three sons, ages 21, 18, and 15. He and Allison, his wife of 25 years, met in Newberg where they were high-school sweethearts at Newberg High School.
