Longtime United Way president announces his retirement

“There were some concerns over the years with debt and the economy, but it’s always been about the desire to support the community.”

Robinson’s final day will be June 30 — the same month as his 25-year anniversary. He said ideally the board will get a committee together within the next few weeks and Robinson’s successor will be hired by mid-May, giving Robinson time to show his replacement the ropes.

Following his final days with United Way, Robinson said he’s not entirely sure what he will be doing. But he knows staying at home is not an option.

“I’ll drive my wife crazy if I’m at home and she’ll drive me crazy,” he said, laughing. “I’ve always been an advocate for nonprofits, so I’ll be doing some volunteering.

“Exactly what I’ll do remains to be seen, but I’m going to be doing something.”
