Welcome our new Executive Director

Banner Neighborhoods is pleased to introduce our new executive director, Dr. Robin Truiett-Theodorson.

Robin, a longtime resident of Baltimore, comes to us after an extensive search and vetting process by Banner’s board of directors, staff, and community stakeholders.

A highly qualified and dedicated leader, Robin brings nearly a decade of experience in community engagement throughout Baltimore City to the role of executive director. She has repeatedly demonstrated her skills in program management, fundraising, and in positioning organizations and residents for success.

Although a complete list of her accomplishments is too extensive to cover here, she counts among them her work as neighborhood liaison for the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhoods, and as assistant director of community affairs in East Baltimore for Johns Hopkins Medicine.

Additionally, Robin served as a program director at the Family League of Baltimore under the B’more for Healthy Babies Initiative, and for many years as a higher education athletic administrator at Towson University, Loyola University in Maryland, Wagner College, and The George Washington University.

Robin has worked for the benefit of Baltimore communities in her free time by volunteering on the boards of Live Baltimore, the Charles Village Community Benefits District and Baltimore City Y Leadership. She has also served as president of the Abell Improvement Association.

As executive director, Robin will helm one of the oldest and most respected community nonprofits serving the residents East and Southeast Baltimore.  We saw in Robin a wealth of experience and a passion for the work we do, and we are confident she will bring fresh energy and ideas to our organization.
