Robin Benatti

Director of Special Projects – Washington D.C.

Fresh out of college with an Art History degree and feeling unfulfilled in her administrative job, an opportunity to join the membership department at a leading Washington, DC museum came up and Robin has never looked back. Twenty-plus years later, she has held direct marketing leadership roles in nonprofits, political organizations and at Nexus Direct and is well-respected in the industry.

After a brief sabbatical following the birth of her second child, Robin and her family relocated to the Middle East where she was very active in fundraising and event planning at the American Community School of Abu Dhabi. She also served as Fundraising Chair on the board of the UAE chapter of Democrats Abroad.

Since repatriating in 2019, Robin is enjoying seasons again as well as fine American staples like Cheez-its and Wheat Thins. A visual person with a passion for art, Robin loves decorating interior spaces and has had fun updating her childhood home in Alexandria, VA, which she shares with her husband, two daughters, sister and American Mastiff puppy.
