The Fellowship Open recently announced corporate trailblazer, entrepreneurial industry leader, and PGA REACH Trustee Dee M. Robinson will be recognized as the 2021 Fellowship Open National Civic Leader. Robinson will receive her award during Fellowship Open weekend activities, August 19-22, 2021, in Milwaukee. She joins NFL Hall of Fame nominee Green Bay Packer LeRoy Butler previously announced as the 2021 Fellowship Open Legends Honoree.

Robinson is the founder and CEO of Robinson Hill, Inc., a Chicago-based concessions and business services management firm with multiple brand affiliations in airports throughout the nation. Known industry-wide as a compassionate, ethical, and visionary leader, her expertise in business start-ups, asset management, brand expansion, and corporate partnerships has resulted in a global support and resource presence and a leading national role in addressing equity and diversity in the workplace and communities of color.

“We expend every effort to develop transformational relationships aligned with ethical business practices in order to fulfill our mission of service to youth,” commented John W. Daniels III, President of the 2021 Fellowship Open. “Through our acknowledgment of Ms. Robinson, one of the nation’s leading voices in the dialogue on equity and inclusion, we gain direct access to wisdom and opportunity in an industry which significantly impacts our communities and neighborhoods. Exploring business growth, economic stability, and career options further validates the significance of the Fellowship Open and we excitedly welcome Dee aboard!”

Robinson has been recognized and awarded not only for her business acumen and tremendous corporate success but for preserving the highest industry standards while expanding and engaging communities of color. Robinson Hill’s commitment to excellence, world class service, and exceptional customer satisfaction is firmly rooted in the traditions instilled by Dee’s mother Helen Hill, for whom the Robinson Hill firm is named.

“I am truly pleased and tremendously honored to be recognized by the Fellowship Open for my service to the community,” said Robinson. “This is especially meaningful to me because the Fellowship Open’s mission of urban youth empowerment is so closely aligned to my own. The organization’s tireless work to raise money and support community and faith-based, youth-serving organizations and initiatives is nothing short of inspirational. To be recognized by the Fellowship Open is a monumental honor and I am deeply moved.”
