Robin Gray, MBA

Business Manager


With over 30 years of business management experience in the architecture industry, Robin joined Holly & Smith in Hammond in 1989. Her role at the firm is far-reaching. She is responsible for overseeing all administrative operations as well as Human Resources and Accounting for both the Hammond and New Orleans offices. She has an expert understanding of the business of design and construction and what it means to bring a project to life through completion. This is consistently demonstrated in her thorough accuracy of budget management and client contract compliance while always staying focused on the bottom line. Her long-term commitment to Holly & Smith and support for its Principals and Staff have proven invaluable to the firm.

Robin attended Southeastern Louisiana University, where she received her undergraduate degree in Office Management in 1983 and a master’s degree in Business Administration (MBA) in 2003. She is also a Class of 2016 graduate of the Leadership Tangipahoa program.

When not at work, Robin stays closely involved with her church, where she plays clarinet each Sunday in the church orchestra. She also enjoys playing the piano, singing, gardening, and traveling.

Robin’s next goal for Holly & Smith is to designate a “bring your dog to work day” so her little Yorkie-Poo Charlie and Malti-Poo Stella can come to hang out with her at the office.
