About Rob Martin

Rob’s passion for people, his work, and community are evident to all who know him. Rob has been Chinook’s Executive Director since he founded the organization in 1980. His investment in the Skagit business community is equally impressive. Rob is Past District Governor for Rotary International District 5050 and is currently active in the local Chamber and EDASC activities.  Most recently, Rob was honored with the Skagit Business Person of the Year Award.

“I believe many of the world’s great problems would be short lived if everyone had a place to work every day and felt good about not only their accomplishments, but their contribution toward society. The fact that people with severe disabilities are unemployed at rates between 70 and 75% is something that should concern us all, and I am passionate about doing everything I can to get people working!
