Meet the incredible team that keeps R3 running strong 

Bill Robinson

At the heart of our organization, Bill started R3 with a vision to treat clients as family, and to help prepare them BEFORE disasters strike, as well as being ready to help them after. It was Bill's commercial restoration experience that created the R3 model, but he is ecstatic to see it growing beyond even his vision for success. He has gathered a team of experts with the goal to keep our clients running or get them back on track quickly, because just like our clients, Bill has no time for downtime. When he's not at work you'll find him spending time with his family or volunteering for a cause he believes in.

Beginning as a restoration tech and working his way up through the ranks as a Mitigation Manager, Project Manager, and Senior Project Manager, he has successfully managed thousands of projects from the field and the office, and knows how to manage teams and develop efficient operating procedures while maintaining a great working environment. When he’s not working, Shane coaches his daughter’s softball team, and enjoys spending time with his family.

When he's not working, you might find Allen volunteering to help with hurricane recovery (as he did in Puerto Rico), tornado cleanup (as he did in Washington, IL), running a 5k/half marathon for charity, or riding with the Widows Sons Masonic Riding Association that raises money for various charities, or he and his wife might be spending time with their 6 kids and 4 grandkids.
