Robin Bagby’s career has come full circle. She started out in executive search, took on a more flexible career in order to spend more time with family and then returned to her first calling.
Before joining Coleman Lew, the Columbus, OH native worked for seven years as an executive recruiter at Waldthausen & Associates, a retained executive search company in Charlotte. There, she specialized in hiring leaders for mid-sized, privately owned, European businesses – mostly engineering- and manufacturing-oriented – with a US presence.
She began her career as an entrepreneur when she opened her own contingency IT recruiting agency. Robin ran RDB Recruiting for five years and grew her business in Charlotte and Raleigh, ultimately landing clients such as Bank of America and Siemens USA.
In between, she worked as an investment residential Realtor in the resort market of NC’s Outer Banks.
Robin earned her degree in communications with a concentration in marketing and corporate PR from Queens University of Charlotte. She is close to her family in the Midwest – but visits only in the summer. She’s happy to visit her sister and brother-in-law in southern California anytime.
Robin is an animal whisperer; animals of all types – including her two rescue cats – tend to gravitate to her. She is also an artist who likes to paint coastal scenes (the Outer Banks, in particular) and an avid traveler who loves to be immersed in nature.
