Volunteer Consultant
Bayer Center’s Executive Service Corps (ESC) 

Raymond Frankoski spent his active career of 34 years in positions of increasing responsibility in the Human Resources function of Westinghouse Government and Environmental Services Company. Following his retirement as Director of Human Resources, Ray joined the Bayer Center’s Executive Service Corps (ESC) as a volunteer consultant in 2001. In addition to serving as a project manager, he has consulted with over 75 different nonprofit organizations. 

Ray and his wife Margaret, whose volunteer roles include head cook for Meals on Wheels for two decades, have three children and four grandsons. 

How the nonprofit section inspires him: “I can clearly see how the organizational improvements that I helped bring about are helping those organizations to satisfy a myriad of community needs .I am also very pleased with the positive receptivity and support that I get from our clients in a wide variety of nonprofits.”

Nonprofit role models include regional corporate leaders:  “Early on it was Harry Goern [ALCOA] and Bob Moll [PPG and Bayer ESC]. Both of these individuals gave tirelessly of their talents with outstanding results. More recently, I admire the work that Bill Stein has done in his leadership roles with a number of nonprofits.”

Wish for the next generation of nonprofit leaders: “A strong desire to give back the talents they have been blessed with for the betterment of our community, and the ability to gain great satisfaction by doing so.”

How he enjoys spending time: “My favorite pastime is golf, and I really enjoy keeping close contact with our three children and four grandsons (two who are currently in college and two who are soon to be).”

Favorite breakfast: “On rare occasions a ham and cheese omelet, but at my age, bran cereal is the norm.”
