Robert J. Mainiero, a founding principal and the “M” of MSA Consulting, Inc., passed away on January 15, 2022, at age 75.
Together with Bob Smith, Bob Mainiero launched Mainiero, Smith and Associates in 1976 with a small office on Tahquitz Way in Palm Springs.
Bob was our firm President for over 20 years and solid in so many ways; he was passionate about the work and about giving the very best service to our clients. That never changed and became ingrained into the firm culture.
After divesting of his ownership in the late ‘90’s, Bob stayed on until 2006 when he officially retired from MSA at age 60 and continued his independent private practice.
To honor his legacy, MSA will be sponsoring a Robert J. Mainiero Memorial Scholarship for a PSUSD student pursuing engineering or other S.T.E.M. related field.
Bob will always be remembered as a special yet humble man, full of genuine goodness, who touched many people in our community.
