Belmont business college taps Robinson for external relations work

Belmont University announced today it has named Jill Robinson director of external relations and of the Executive Learning Network program, both for the BU College of Business Administration.

Named the 2013 Young Leader of the Year by Young Leaders Council, Robinson has worked at Belmont since 2005, primarily in program oversight and marketing with the university’s Center for Executive Education. In her new role, she will secure and manage corporate and CEO relationships in the greater Nashville business community, resulting in both an expansion of Executive Learning Network and a coordinated outreach effort to all key business school relationships and partners, Belmont said in a release. 

A graduate of Samford University with a B.A. degree in graphic design and of Trevecca University with both a M.B.A degree and a M.A. degree in organizational management, Robinson offers more than 18 years of experience in leadership program management, community relations, volunteer management and organization partnerships.

In addition to her work since 2007 with the Center for Executive Education, Robinson previously served for two years as Belmont’s senior university events coordinator. She also worked six years at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in a variety of roles, including director of development.

Robinson will report directly to College of Business Administration Dean Dr. J. Patrick Raines.

“Jill will continue her leadership of the Executive Learning Network program, fostering a community of learning among the executive members in Middle Tennessee,” Rains said in the release. “As dean, I’m excited to have her work alongside our team in the College of Business Administration to build more relationships with area businesses in our community.”
