TRC Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board Passes Away

TRC is saddened to announce the passing of Embree Robinson, co-founder and current TRC Chairman of the Board.

In 1980, Embree was one of the original founders of TRC Staffing along with friend and business partner Roy Cannon.  As a pillar in the Staffing community, both locally and nationally, Embree helped build TRC on principles and values that reflect the highest level of service to candidate and client alike.  TRC became one of the fastest-growing temporary staffing companies in the US, helping Embree earn Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year award in 1987.

Through his leadership, acute knowledge of the marketplace, and ability to embrace change, Embree built an organization that has remained profitable each of its 40 years, even in tough market conditions.  In January of 2009, he stepped out of the day-to-day operations of the company, handing over that responsibility to his son Brian Robinson as President and CEO.  Throughout these last 11 years, Embree still remained on as Chairman of the Board of Directors and continued to serve as a close advisor.

Although he is no longer with us, Embree’s legacy will forever remain in both the organization and the lives of so many people that he mentored and invested in throughout the years.  He is survived by Karen, his wife of 50 years, their children Christina and Brian, and grandchildren Tyler, Katie, and Emma.
