Robert Di Bacco

Chief Operating Officer


Robert is our Chief Operating Officer, which means that you will find him doing a million things on any given day. He has a hard hat, a wide-brimmed sombrero, a fedora, and a montera for the toughest tasks (be sure to google the last one). He is responsible for the Association’s financials and overall operations, and he’s striving to make the Association a sustainable organization. Under his leadership, the Association has grown substantially and he led us through the financing and acquisition of our new permanent home. Robert has a wide variety of business and education experience. He was previously a bond underwriter with Travelers Group, the director of athletics & travel at The American School in Switzerland, the director of outdoor education at The Orme School, and he led and founded The Gaia School in Chile and Argentina. He has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from The University of Western Ontario and an MBA from Thunderbird School of Global Management. He enjoys living in the southwest and is an active player and fan of European football (you won’t hear him use the word soccer!)


I’m always happy to share my knowledge – I’m a generalist not a specialist. If there is support you need in anything from HR to financing to technology to marketing, feel free to reach out to me and we can work through it together.
