Bob RazzanteBob Razzante, CESP

CEFA Managing Director


B.A in Psychology from Cleveland State University. I have a passion for assisting individuals with developmental disabilities succeed in finding meaningful and gainful employment in a vocation of their choice. I come from the mindset of finding a job you love so that it becomes a “career”, not just a job.


How long have you worked here (can provide year started)?

While my 2nd career with CEFA is just beginning, my experience has allowed me to work with individuals in residential, community employment, and Special Olympics for over 33 years.

Briefly describe your role, in a manner that would be meaningful to an adult child.

My job is to assist individuals with career planning, job development and finding a successful outcome for a positive job placement experience, which benefits both the individual and the employer. Using assessment tools that find the passion an individual has and finding a job that matches that passion is my driving motivation.

Do you have experience in a related field that you can share?

I come from a county board where I spent the last 25 years in Job Coaching and Follow along services, along with assisting in job development.

What is your favorite thing about your job?

My favorite part of my job is seeing the growth in self-esteem and confidence in the people we place, along with seeing family members/advocates beam with pride.

Would you like to share something personal, such as a love of hiking or dogs or such?

My wife of 33 years and I spend time with our 6 sons, travelling to baseball tournaments and playing with our 2 dogs. I am a mediocre player at “Words with Friends”, and hold a certificate as a Water Safety Instructor. I am an avid swimmer and enjoy staying physically active. I love almost all kinds of music and love to spend time reading a good mystery novel.
