Executive Assistant to the Vice President & Sr. Director Online Sales Organization
Speaker at the 8th Annual Global Executive Assistant Summit
Lindsay Robinson has always been in service of others. Starting her career while still in college at Montclair State University in NJ, she commuted to NYC each day, serving as an assistant to a Technology Venture Capitalist, learning very early in her career that being proactive, resourceful, and personable would get her quite far fast. Coordinating events, managing office politics, and of course, keeping this busy executive efficiently organised made her sought after when, unfortunately, Urban Box Office (UBO), a tech start-up, which was initially highly funded, ran out of its’ funding.
Starting in the Public Relations department at the National Basketball Association was a dream come true in September 2000. As a fan and college athlete, combing her passion and career goals was a gift. She spent the next 11 years at the NBA under the tutelage of amazing leaders, learning the business of Player Development. Assisting in the execution of national events like the NBA Pre-Draft camp and Draft, Annual Rookie Transition Program, Team Awareness initiative, pockets of All -Star weekend, and our global Basketball without Borders program, all while keeping two busy execs informed of their responsibilities.
When it was time for a change of pace, Lindsay started a new position at the growing NYC based experiential marketing agency, Team Epiphany. Creating a position for herself as Vice President, Business Operations she was responsible for the creation of process and protocol that kept the company running as well as supporting the Husband and Wife Co-owners as their personal and executive assistant. The company with clients like Nike, Google, Moet Hennessy USA, Cadillac, and more grew from 10 to 70 employees over the 9 years she was there, eventually starting a second and managing office in Portland, Oregon.
Almost 20 years later, Lindsay was fortunate to find her way back to the Tech industry in 2018. As an Executive Assistant to the Online Sales Organization at LinkedIn, her daily role is in support of the Vice President as well as a Sr. Director in this business vertical. With 300 employees globally, her days are full of varied requests requiring a high level of efficiency and execution. One of the joys is being able to help people understand the benefits of the platform as an Ambassador for the Rock Your Profile program.
In her spare time, she is an avid runner and cyclist. She completed 40 races in a calendar year as a celebration of her 40th birthday in 2017, following that goal by running the NYC Marathon in 2018.
