Bob HermannAt the inaugural meeting of our Club for the 2024-2025 term, incoming President Bob Hermann will introduce the Rotary International theme for the year, The Magic of Rotary, and discuss its significance for our Club alongside with Bob’s theme of Tradition, Teaching, and Transformation. President Bob and the new Board will also outline their plans for the upcoming Rotary year.

Bob became a member of the Rotary Club of San Francisco in 2017 after retiring from UCSF Medical Center, with his spouse Dan Joraanstad serving as his mentor. Proudly taking on the role of President for the 2024-2025 term, Bob has a history of service within the Club, including as Vice President of Community Service and involvement in various Rotary Youth initiatives such as ALPS and RYLA. He has also participated in Rotary international service projects with Alliance for Smiles in Egypt and in India for the End Polio Now campaign. Alongside his Rotary involvement, Bob enjoys wine and is an active member of the Rotary Wine Fellowship.

Bob’s role at Kaiser Permanente in the healthcare technology area, played a significant role in implementing electronic medical record technology and where he also served as a Care Delivery compliance officer. Post Kaiser Permanente, he helped to lead and project manage key hospital system implementations such as the Pediatric Cardiac Cath/EP Labs and Donor Walls at the new UCSF Mission Bay Hospital as well as work as a Research Program Manager.

Bob holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from Saint Peter’s University in New Jersey and a Master’s degree in Computer Information Systems from Golden Gate University in San Francisco. Originally from New Jersey, Bob and Dan relocated to the City by the Bay, San Francisco, in 1991.

Outside of Rotary, Bob's interests include music, fine dining, gardening, and travel. Later this year, Bob and Dan will be honored in Evanston, Illinois for their charitable contributions to The Rotary Foundation as members of the Arch Klumph Society.
