Robin fell in love with Nantucket in 1984 after stepping foot on island with a group of college friends sailing around the cape. They intended to stay one night, but as the crew raised sail the next morning, they told the captain this was a mutiny. He had to stay four more days or leave with no crew. Robin has been a regular since and his middle son, Theo, born at the Cottage Hospital, proudly shows to friends and family his plaque on the "Wall of Nantucket Natives."
Robin spent most of his career in London as a Managing Director at several investment banks, as well as the founder and Chairman of Sussex Partners, a regulated financial advisor. Robin's last position before relocating back to the U.S. was as founder and Chairman of a non-profit helping abandoned children in developing countries suffering from physical or mental disability, https://www.humanitascharity.org/our-story.
He received his MBA from Harvard Business School and received his BS in Economics from the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.
Kathy began visiting Nantucket in the mid-1980s, fell in love with the island and purchased a modest home in the early 1990s in Tom Nevers. Now retired, her 5 ‘kids’, their spouses and the grandkids come together on island each summer. Upkeep and repairs on their 30 year old home are paid for by short term rentals when we are not on island. All of Kathy’s rentals would be prohibited by this new bylaw.
Her son is a year round resident after ‘growing up’ on island during the summers, weekends and school vacations. Kathy has been on the board of the Tom Nevers Civic Association since 2005, and is a recently appointed member of the Advisory Committee of Non-Voting Taxpayers (volunteers who meet publicly and provide input to the Select Board on issues affecting non-voting taxpayers).
Her and her husband are members of the ACK Clean Team, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, serving in their weekly meals delivery and Laundry Love (which Kathy founded on the island) missions. Her husband Joe is a semi-retired Episcopal priest.
We are a 100% volunteer, non-salaried grass roots group. Thus, some of our members have professional or personal commitments which preclude listing of their names on a public website. They will be noted as Resident with their initials.
