Robin Zaleski

Robin Zaleski, Director of Relationships

Robin was once employed as a talking Christmas tree.

No one was fooled.

She’ll take any excuse to get dressed up, especially if it involves a hat or wig. She gets a not-so-secret nerdy thrill from teaching herself how to code and throws a mean dinner party.

Before Robin joined Freed Marcroft in January, 2014 (and long after the talking tree gig), she had worked in marketing and logistics capacities for: a national conference producer, a private city club, a winery, an interstate natural gas pipeline, a mutual fund company, an environmental remediation consultancy and a world-renowned contemporary art museum. In each industry she found a commonality: treat your clients, co-workers, and vendors well, and everyone wins.

In her role at the firm, she uses her networking skills to expand our state-wide list of trusted referral partners, to whom we connect our clients for services we don’t provide as they work with us on the life circumstances that bring them to Freed Marcroft.

A lifelong Connecticut resident, Robin is a shameless cheerleader for her adopted city of Hartford and enjoys being involved in organizations that make a difference in her neighbors’ quality of life. She is President of the Board and on the social and communication committees of the South Downtown Neighborhood Revitalization Zone (SoDo NRZ), on the planning committee for Night Fall, a member of both the Board and the marketing & governance committees of the Bushnell Park Foundation, and a member of the ad hoc visitation committee for the Mark Twain House and Museum. She was President of the Board of the former Hartford Children’s Theatre and was a multi-term Board member of the alumnae/i association of her alma mater, the College of New Rochelle.

She was named a Hartford Business Journal 40 Under Forty winner in 2005 and was awarded an Ursula Laurus Citation by her alma mater in 2009.

Life itself is the proper binge.
