Robyn Carey Allgeyer
Robyn Carey Allgeyer has spent twenty-eight years working in public relations, marketing and fund development in both the public and private sector. A passionate storyteller, she believes this skill is the heart of public relations. New technologies change how stories are shared, but knowing how to tell them and to whom is what makes a difference for her clients.
Robyn has held the top communications position with the Cincinnati Opera and Cincinnati Symphony and Pops Orchestras, Dallas Ballet, Grapevine Opry Theatre, and the Los Angeles Master Chorale. She worked with a small, but “mighty,” public relations firm in Los Angeles, where she was the account executive for clients Sega Master System, Monster Cable, Pacific Arts Video and Paramount Home Video. As the Development and Public Relations Director for the YWCA of Greater Cincinnati, she ran a $250,000 annual campaign and produced the “largest luncheon event in the city,” the YWCA Career Women of Achievement Awards. Her experience in non-profit management includes developing strategies to integrate fundraising and marketing, grant writing, and creating public-private partnerships and sponsorship programs.
She is a contributing host for “Around Cincinnati,” a weekly arts and entertainment magazine on WVXU, 91.7 FM (NPR), and she will spend most of August at the Western & Southern Masters and Women’s Open tennis tournaments, where she serves on the PR Committee as an on-court announcer. Her newest venture will begin in June as a vendor at the new Springdale Farmer’s Market, selling homemade bread and homegrown herbs. She and her three children are graduates of Princeton High School. Robyn lives in Glendale with her husband jazz pianist/organist Rob Allgeyer.
