Rick Robinson to Join ManufacturedHomes.com Team
Well-known industry professional Rick Robinson has joined ManufacturedHomes.com to become its Executive Vice President of Industry Relations. In that role, the former General Counsel/Senior Vice President of State and Local Affairs for the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) will be working to bring a new level of consumer technology to those buying homes and residing in communities.
“You can’t solve the affordable housing crisis in America without manufactured housing,” Robinson said. “Whether it’s on a retail lot or in a community manager’s office, the industry needs to bring our best tools to the table. I’ve been watching this company develop for several years and I honestly believe Manufacturedhomes.com is charting new territory to take our message of quality affordable housing to future homebuyers and community residents.”
Having made presentations at more state association meetings than anyone in the industry over the past several years, Robinson is well known by state association staff and their members. His messaging in support of the industry was so significant that in 2016, the Manufactured Housing Executive Committee awarded Robinson their Jim Moore Excellence in Communication Award – the only time that honor has been bestowed on an MHI staffer.
Brad Nelms, president of Manufacturedhomes.com said he was excited to have Robinson on board. “He’s been one of the industry’s most well-respected voices for years,” said Nelms. “Having Rick on board is taking our organization’s culture of innovative industry relations to a new level.”
