About Bob Weingartner


IMG_0730Bob Weingartner is a lifelong New Jersey resident and founder/owner of Weinfive Career  Coaching, a niche business focused on assisting entry to mid level career and job seekers in attaining their career goals. Over the past few years, Bob has thrived through several life and career changing events initiated by the loss of both Mom and Dad in the same year.  The impact of those events encouraged Bob to complete several BHAG’s (big, hairy, audacious goals) including running 7 marathons, qualifying for the Boston Marathon and attending a men’s Cursillo Catholic retreat which led to the start-up of a successful volunteer job search work team (“my ministry”) in his local parish.  Having had multiple transitions in his own personal career, it was only natural for Bob to launch a successful coaching business to share the lessons learned during the span of his HR career. The success and results that Bob has achieved in his career and in life is defined in his personal mantra that has been passed down from his dad, “do it – now!”.  Never put off tomorrow what you can get done today.

Bob is  a Senior Human Resources Professional with 15+ years experience as an HR Generalist in the trenches as an HR practitioner, business leader and trusted advisor/coach to employees at all levels.  Bob’s HR career has focused on employee and leadership development.  He also possesses significant full-cycle recruitment expertise.  Bob has held senior HR operations positions at small, mid-sized and large global public and private companies such as Stryker Orthopedics, Ametek Inc., Cookson Electronics and Marcal Paper Company.  He has worked in the high-tech electronics, green, hospitality, CPG and medical device industries.  He’s had success in operating as a strategic business partner and contributed to achieving bottom line business results.  He is an extremely diverse HR professional as he travelled extensively in Brazil and was part of a project team that led to a successful business start-up in Monterrey, Mexico.

Bob was a volunteer Lead Facilitator/Coach for the Corpus Christi Job Search Work Team (JSWT) for 5 years.  He led the team through the maze of the basic job search process by exploring practical ways to land though active networking, education and self-assessment. Candidates learned the hard realities in navigating the competitive job world and gain the confidence to succeed in their job search. He has helped numerous job search candidates land in this difficult market.  Currently, Bob is the Lead Facilitator for the Career Health Ministry (CHM).  In its 2d year, he holds workshops 3x/yr where keynote speakers from local parishes and the community share their biggest workplace challenges, learnings on how they overcame those trials and how God and their faith helped them though it all.  Attendees can readily apply the insights in their everyday careers.

Bob’s career success has everything to do with aligning himself with great leaders.  “It’s so important to choose your boss in life and in your career as they have a direct impact in your ability to succeed and make a difference”.
