A board member since 2008, Robin has taken on an increasingly important leadership role at the agency, which earned her the President's award in 2011. Robin graduated from Dartmouth College and earned an MBA from Columbia University. She worked at Digitas for 14 years where, as a senior vice president, she managed the AT&T and Cingular accounts as well as the marketing department.

At JF&CS, Robin served as a member of the Executive Committee and has chaired the Marketing Committee since 2006. She also chaired the Strategic Planning Committee, where she played an integral role in the development of the 2012-2014 Strategic Plan. Her hard work and timeless dedication to this endeavor helped create a vision for JF&CS that will extend into the next decade. Robin is also a member of the Development, Nominating, Board Governance, and Board of Advocates Planning Committees.

In 2012, Robin and her family received the JF&CS Community Leadership Award for their personal and family contributions to the agency and to numerous other nonprofit organizations. The Neiterman family also founded a scholarship program in memory of Robin's father, Arthur, designed to provide memorable summer camp experiences for low-income children..

JF&CS is thrilled to have Robin as our next Board President. We're certain that her commitment, vision, and extraordinary leadership abilities will be enormous assets to the work and mission of JF&CS.
