Robin is a team builder, investor and lifelong learner dedicated to supporting innovative businesses that focus on future generations as well as annual results. Mr. Bot-Miller left the world of institutional real estate investing in 2016 to embark on a year ‘sabbatical’ with his wife Heather and to refocus his career in a more regenerative direction. Robin’s dad was a 6th-generation farmer in Minnesota before giving up farming in the early 1980’s commodity crash. This family history motivated Robin to spend 2017 studying organic farming at the Center for Land-Based Learning, where his profound respect for farmers and our soils grew immensely. He is currently launching a real estate investment fund focused on outdoor hospitality experiences that connect people to the natural world.
Mr. Bot-Miller previously spent 11 years as a commercial real estate investor, most recently as a co-founder and Managing Director of RBC Real Estate Capital Partners and previously in the Real Estate Principal Investment Area of Goldman, Sachs & Co. in the New York, Dallas and London offices. He had a wide range of responsibilities including the asset management, acquisition and restructuring of investments located in Canada, the United States, Europe, Australia and Latin America. Originally from Saint Cloud, Minnesota, Robin graduated with honors from Stanford University with a degree in Economics. He is a Fulbright Scholar whose program in Monterrey, Mexico focused on international business.
Robin joined the board in 2019 out of a deep appreciation for both the people who grow our food and for FarmLink’s mission to support a more diverse ecosystem of California farmers.
