Eugene’s Best Boss for 2011 was named Tuesday during a grand reveal to Gena Yarbrough of Oregon Medical Group. We received a total of 9 individual entries for her nomination and it was clear that her staff valued and appreciated the leadership Gena brings to their job. Here are some comments that were made about Gena:
“Gena is the best boss because she is friendly and easy to talk to about anything…I have never seen her mad. She keeps the clinic running as smooth as possible. Even when she has a hundred things going on, she will stop to listen to us.”

Thank you everyone for your great entries to our 1st Annual Bosses Day Giveaway! We had a great response and it was a tough decision to choose a winner. We awarded the prize to Dr. Andy Bennion, an orthodontist here in Eugene. He was presented with a floral bouquet, Euphoria Chocolate truffles, and a balloon bouquet on Wednesday, October 14!
Read what his staff had to say about him:
“We feel our boss deserves this award because he supports us in the jobs that we do and with our decisions, he acknowledges us when we do a good job. We never feel anxiety if our child is sick or we are sick and can’t make it to work, he says family is first. Not only is he great to us but also to the community. He donates several pro bono cases to low income families that need braces, he donates his time coaching several different sport teams and is very active with his church. Last week we came to work on a Thursday and at our huddle he gave us all envelopes and rented a van and told us to trust him. We all loaded up and he took us to the Woodburn outlets. When we opened the envelopes there was $200 and he told us to have fun. On the way home he treated us to a great dinner and paid us for the days ‘work’. This is just one of the many great things he does for us. If that is not the BEST BOSS we really would not know what is!”
