Express Ranches Bob Funk Sr. Named Oklahoman of the Year In the Latest issue of Oklahoma Magazine they named the Oklahomans of the Year.

2021 could be described as a year of rebuilding. After the pandemonium of 2020, many were left hurting – jobless, burnt out or grieving. Those honored in the 2021 Oklahomans of the Year feature contributed to the state’s restoration in one way or another, whether that was by helping people get employed, getting them the healthcare they desperately needed, or enriching their lives through entertainment and education. Sifting through the bad to find the good, these leaders did what it took to get Oklahomans back on top.

Bob Funk Sr, Founder, CEO and Chairman of Express Ranches and Express Employment professionals made the list of Top Oklahomans thanks to his incredible contributions throughout the state, and to the Youth of Oklahoma

Gratitude is A Theme of Funk's life, starting with appreciation for his hardworking parents and a cousin who gave him a job on his farm in Washington, "He employed me for about 12 years so I could get through college and get my graduate degree's, " Says Funk

He then joined a human resource company in Seattle that transferred him to Oklahoma, a move he describes as the "Greatest blessing in my life"..

At the Radio Oklahoma Ag Network we are honored to have worked with Mr. Funk throughout the years and say Congratulations on being an Oklahoma of the year.
