History

Robinson Benefits, Ltd. was founded in 1989 by Thomas W. Robinson Jr. Tom graduated from The University of Texas at Austin in 1982 with a degree in economics. Tom began his career as a banker, but in 1989 Tom decided to begin his insurance career with NYL. From the beginning, the firm has focused on private insurance planning and employee benefits. Tom founded Robinson Benefits with an emphasis on lasting relationships with his clients.

As our clients grew, so did our practice. What began by helping families find the security they needed with life insurance, soon evolved into full service estate planning. Our employee benefits practice has grown from meeting our clients’ basic group health insurance needs to providing a comprehensive employee benefits package.

Tom passed away unexpectedly in a single engine plane crash in the Texas Hill Country on September 8, 2012. Tom’s son, Gentry, had joined the practice in 2009 upon his graduation from Texas Christian University. Gentry obtained degrees in finance, accounting, and entrepreneurial management with the intent of joining his dad’s practice full time.

Gentry worked at Robinson Benefits in both high school and as a college intern. Although Tom did not plan on handing over the reins until much later, the plan was in place for Gentry to step in if something happened to Tom. The transition was seamless thanks to a team that had been with Tom and Gentry over the past decade.

Robinson Benefits continued success is directly related to the personal relationships that Tom developed with both our employee benefits and private clients. Robinson Benefits current team, Gentry, Lisa and Ramiro, strive to continue Tom’s legacy, based on putting our clients’ needs first.
