This marks the third time in four years that the distributor has been recognized as one of the top-three workplaces in Los Angeles and the fifth consecutive year that BAMKO has appeared on this list. BAMKO previously was named the No. 1 overall Best Place to Work in Los Angeles in both 2018 and 2020.

“It is incredibly gratifying to know that in the midst of such a challenging time, our employees continue to recognize the very special culture that we have here at BAMKO,” says BAMKO President Jake Himelstein. “We are building something different. To us, a great culture comes from the sense of purpose that people get when they get outside of their comfort zones and strive for more. It has to do with the sense of community and connection they find in a workplace where they are surrounded by others who are on their own growth journeys. We want to challenge people to envision the best version of themselves and then to go do the work to bring that vision to fruition. That’s who we are and it’s what makes BAMKO special.”
