Robinson is an Edmeston, NY native and earned her Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing at St. Bonaventure University in 2001. Since then, she has served in many roles at NYCM Insurance, including Application Testing Supervisor, Project Management Manager, Project Management Division Manager, and First Senior Vice President. She was promoted to Executive VP/COO in February 2019.

“I’m humbled to be the next President/CEO of NYCM Insurance and the first woman to serve in the position,” said Robinson. “I want to thank the Board of Directors for their continued guidance and support. As I reflect on becoming the first female NYCM President/CEO during Women’s History Month, I think about how far we have come as a company and as a country. As I look ahead to the future at NYCM, I’m excited to bring a new perspective and am motivated and energized by the strength, character, and care our employees demonstrate every day.”

Robinson’s roots run deep with the Edmeston-based insurance company, as great-great granddaughter of NYCM Insurance founder Van Ness D. Robinson, and the daughter of former NYCM Insurance President/CEO V. Daniel Robinson II, who continues to serve as the Chairman of the NYCM Insurance Board of Directors. Dan Robinson was appointed President/CEO in 1993 and has been with the company since 1971.

“It has been an honor and a privilege to lead such a tremendous team and company for the past 28 years,” said Dan. “It has been challenging, fun, and rewarding, and I am excited for the direction NYCM is headed. I have enjoyed working with Cheryl and the rest of the NYCM Board of Directors to orchestrate a seamless transition, and I am confident Cheryl will continue to lead NYCM to reach new goals and milestones.”
