Robert I. I. (Bob) Bondi

Community Projects Helped by Bondi.

Meeting with Matt Rose, President and CEO of BNSF. Bondi was presenting the National Railroad Hall of Fame Induction Plaque of Louis Menk, former CEO of BN, in 2002. Community activities like this help bring additional focus to Galesburg's commitment to the Railroad Industry and those relationships create confidence for businesses to expand their activities and jobs in our community. On January 8, 2013, Mr. Rose addressed a luncheon meeting in Galesburg, as sponsored by GREDA. BNSF is the largest employer in Galesburg.

Bob Bondi is the third generation manager of the Bondi Building, located on the Northeast corner of Kellogg and Main Street. The current and past tenants are a "Who's Who" of business and professional services since 1928, with many of them expanding to become key employers in the Galesburg Area. We like to think that if you create an environment for success and give those businesses the support to succeed, that Galesburg succeeds too.
