Robyn Lloyd is a Technology Manager in the Data Analytics space at State Farm. She started out 18 years ago as a Cobol Developer and through the years her strength in driving work, need for challenges, and ease of adaptability has taken her on a very diverse journey through the Enterprise Technology department. A highlight of her career was relocating from Illinois to Georgia five years ago to build the brand of IT and recruit new talent to State Farm’s Atlanta Hub. Her first assignment on arrival was to build a relationship with WIT. Robyn also has a passion for Diversity & Inclusion and actively participates in numerous Employee Resource Groups which ties easily into her love of travel and experiencing all the cultures and people the world has to offer. Robyn also serves as the Director of Operations of the Lloyd household along with her partner, Ken (CFO). Together they empower their CEOs, Paige (12) and Hope (25) to pursue all of their hopes and dreams.
