Frank Robinson
CEO
Frank Robinson
CEO

Frank Robinson is the CEO of Robinson Construction Company. Frank inherited his passion for construction from his father, Ed, and began working as a plumber in high school. He has led the company since 1973 with a two-pronged management approach shaped by his bachelor's degree in sociology and psychology from Southeast Missouri State University and U.S. Army Officers School - nurture and inspire employees to their maximum potential; plan meticulously with ample contingencies. This approach has engendered loyalty in employees and clients alike.

Always eager to master new challenges, Frank expanded our capabilities into utility, municipal and heavy industrial manufacturing markets; in-house fabrication; and complete design-build services. He remains personally involved on projects with difficult technical requirements such as deep excavations, marine work, and unusual soil conditions.

Frank is a pillar in the community, utilizing his knowledge, resources, and leadership skills to help foster growth in the communities in which his team members live and work. In addition to the many civic organizations that Frank supports on a regular basis, he also currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Bank of Missouri (1995-present), and is a member of the Perryville Planning & Zoning  Commission (1980-present), Perry County Economic Development Authority (1985-present), and Perry County Community Foundation (2013-present).
