Farm Bureau Insurance CEO Jim Robinson has been named the recipient of the 2017 Community Service award by the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce. Robinson will receive his award during ceremonies at the Chamber’s 2018 Annual Dinner on Tuesday, February 27.

“I am honored and deeply appreciative to receive the Community Service award from the Lansing Regional Chamber,” said Robinson. “I have always considered community service not as something for which we should receive any recognition, but rather a responsibility we all have to give back to a great community. In many respects, I feel like I have received more than I have contributed and for that consider myself to be most fortunate.”

Jim Robinson’s career with Farm Bureau Insurance has spanned 42 years. He has been chief executive officer since 2004. In 2015, 2016, and 2017, the Detroit Free Press recognized Farm Bureau Insurance as one of the top 100 places to work in Michigan. Robinson will retire from Farm Bureau Insurance in June 2018.

During his tenure, Jim stressed to all Farm Bureau employees the importance of being involved in the community. Among his community service contributions:

  • Chair of the Mid-Michigan Travel Coalition Board of Directors
  • Chairman and Member of the Ele’s Place Lansing Community Board of Directors; • Member of the Sparrow Foundation Board of Directors
  • Member of the Roy Westran Scholarship Foundation
  • Member of the executive committee for the Lansing Economic Area Partnership
  • Member of the Insuring My Future Board
  • Former member of the Wharton Center Advisory Board

“More than likely you’ve seen Jim somewhere displaying the essence of his character, his tireless commitment to our community and the courage it takes to tackle tough problems,” said Dr. Phil Knight, executive director of the Food Bank Council of Michigan. “Jim’s ability to lead and influence is legendary, and it was always for the community’s gain not his own.”
