“Manufacturing offers a world of opportunities to lead, learn and achieve excellence. It allows me to create the future, mature a culture, and build a team. It pushes me to solve new and interesting challenges. It fulfills me to see a winning team making great products.”

Robin joined MillerCoors in 1992 and was one of the first female warehouse managers in the history of the company. She has held a variety of progressively responsible leadership positions leading to her current role.  Under her tenure, the RMMC End Plant was the first plant in MillerCoors to be recognized by OSHA as a Star Voluntary Protection Program site, acknowledging the excellent safety performance of the facility and the culture that has created the performance through people engagement. 
Robin is an innovative thinker who effectively translates strategic imperatives into specific actions that her people can grasp drive toward. Robin partnered with Ball Engineering to lead a technology transformation at the plant that resulted in improved quality and efficiency, and that serves as a model for Ball on future client installations. 
She has built a tremendous leadership team by nurturing potential talent through internships. She created engineering roles for young graduates to learn the basic processes for end making and then work with the plant teams to continuously improve the processes and efficiencies. By contributing to the team’s success, the engineers learned not only valuable skills in their technical field, but they learned the importance of delivering results through others. She also remains committed to supporting diversity and inclusion as central themes for MillerCoors as the company looks to develop the next generation of women leaders. 
Robin shares her talents in the Denver community. She serves on the Executive Board for Volunteers of America in Denver where she has represented MillerCoors for community support for the last three years. Among other efforts, she works with Volunteers of America and the Women's Crisis Center.
