Robinson returns to Beaver Street

Rumbellis (Rum) Robinson was the first director of Beaver StreetEnterprise Center back in 2003 when it opened its doors. Over the past eight years, Robinson has continued to be actively involved as Beaver Street Enterprise Center grew into an internationally renowned business incubator under the leadership of Executive Director Jackie Perry.

With a BS degree in Computer Technology and Management Information Systems from University of North Florida and more than 30 years of financial and resource management experience, the former technology vice president and project manager with Bank of America is returning to Beaver Street Enterprise Center as program manager.

Blending his banking skills with his entrepreneurial spirit, Robinson is also chief executive officer and owner of Flantastic Enterprises Inc., which was named Minority Manufacturing Firm of the year in 1995 and, for several years, has provided valuable learning experiences for students of the University of North Florida’s Small Business Institute Program.

“The return of Rum Robinson as program manager in a full-time capacity to Beaver Street Enterprise Center is as much reason for celebration as our recent 8th Anniversary events,” says Perry, noting that Robinson returns with vast experience and knowledge, having managed multi-million dollars projects with great success for many years.

“As program manager, Rum will be responsible for all aspects of the Technical Assistance program, ensuring that tenants receive the coaching, mentoring, and training needed to be successful. In addition, he will be responsible for ensuring that clients have access to capital and other key resources to help grow their business. Rum’s passion for entrepreneurship and his corporate business expertise make him the ideal man for this position,” said Perry. “His former role as incubator director and a board member bring additional value and insight to his new role. We’re excited that he’s returned to us as we launch our eighth year of growth and success!”
