  • Central Coast Best Places to Work & Hall of Fame 2019

    Each year we recognize the best places to work in the Tri-Counties by putting together a simple survey to collect nominations. We then crunch the data to determine the best of the best. This year we recognize these businesses on Thu, May 23, 2019 from 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM PDT at the Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara. You may purchase tickets HERE

    This year's Hall of Fame inductee is Rick Stollmeyer, the co-founder and CEO of MindBody, one of the most successful startups in the history of San Luis Obispo County. The company was founded in his garage and has grown to be a dominant player in providing software to spas, yoga studios and fitness centers, advancing healthy lifestyles in workplaces worldwide. After its successful initial public stock offering, Mindbody was acquired by Vista Equity Partners in February for $1.9 billion.
    Stollmeyer is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and a Navy veteran. He studied integrated technology management at Cal Poly before founding MindBody.
