Robinett knows the (United) way to success
Born here, banker here, Nathan Robinett believes in community involvement.
Nathan L. Robinett is not afraid to deal with challenges.As regional president of Tarrant County for Frost National Bank, he deals with plenty of tough problems -- from financing large projects to competing with a myriad of new banks.
But as campaign chairman for the United Way of Metropolitan Tarrant County this year, he knows there are other challenges aplenty.
"For the past two years, we haven't made our goal and that's having an impact on the organization and, in particular, on the charities, we support.I believe we have a very reasonable goal this year and I'm optimistic we can make it," he said.
The economy is much improved, but it is still tough and some businesses just can't give like they did when times were good," Robinett said.
Robinett said indications are that fundraising is on the upswing.Several companies have demonstrated stellar results from their campaigns."Burlington Northern Santa Fe had results 30 percent over last year.They raised $1.3 million.That's a good indication that things are improving," he said.
But some industries -- telecom, transportation and travel -- are ailing, he said."We're not going to see much from companies involved in those industries.They've had too many cutbacks and even if everyone in the organization did give what they usually did, there have been a lot of layoffs.But that's just one of the things you have to deal with," Robinett said.
To compensate, the United Way has added to the number of organizations participating in this year's drive."We're doing real well on that score and that makes us very hopeful," Robinett said.For instance, some students at TCU are running a United Way campaign on campus.
Robinett and the United Way have focused the organization's message in an attempt to help raise funds.
Aside from the United Way, Robinett also serves on the executive committee at Texas Wesleyan and is vice chairman at the Fleetwood Memorial Foundation, a non-profit group that provides assistance to police officer and firefighters injured or killed on the job.
When he worked in Arlington, Robinett had served as chairman of the Arlington Chamber of Commerce and, and in Fort Worth, he has been on the board of the Fort Worth Chamber and Downtown Fort Worth Inc.He is also on the board at Baylor All Saints and serves as a congregational president at his church, Trinity Lutheran."It's not like I try to see how many boards I can be on, but I've always been a bit hyper and full of energy," he said.
The Bridge's Spencer agrees."Nathan has been great in providing insight and he seems to really love what he's doing," he said.
The community Robinett is helping is the very one in which he was born and raised.An east side native, Robinett attended Carter-Riverside High School at the same time as another Fort Worth community leader, John Roach.
After having been drafted and sent to Vietnam, Robinett finished school at Texas Wesleyan College, then got a banking degree from SMU.He went to work for a bank on Fort Worth's east side before going to Arlington during its growth years in the late '70s and early '80s.He became CEO of First City Bank in Arlington and was then recruited to Texas Commerce Bank.He then joined Overton Bank as head of its Arlington operations and then took over in Fort Worth.When Frost Bank purchased Overton in 19??, Robinett remained on board as regional president.Frost is a $10-billion bank based in San Antonio with 78 branches across Texas.Dating its history to 1868, Frost is one of the few Texas banks to survive the 1980s Texas banking debacle.
"Frost has been great.They're one of the few banks their size that has retained their original vision.We're very customer-oriented and we're large enough to do just about anything," Robinett said.
Robinett and his wife, Ruth, moved back to Fort Worth 10 years ago when he became head of Overton Bank.They have three children, two sons and a daughter.Their daughter is married to a band director at Oklahoma University, so Robinett often dons OU colors to catch one of the country's best college football teams."But I still put on purple when I'm going to a TCU game.I'm rooting for them.They have a great program," he said.
Robinett also admits to a bit of competitive streak.
