Natalie Robinson has been selected to serve as the National Federation of Independent Business’ state director for Indiana beginning Jan. 1. She will replace Barbara Quandt, who will become region director overseeing Indiana and eight other states.
Robinson has served as NFIB’s grassroots manager for Indiana and five other states since 2017, working directly with the small business advocacy organization’s members on key issues such as reducing business personal property taxes, opposing new mandates, and protecting small businesses from potential lawsuits.
As state director, Robinson will be NFIB’s primary advocate in the Indiana Legislature and guide member engagement and political involvement throughout the state.
“Natalie has done a terrific job as grassroots manager,” Quandt said. “She brings a wealth of experience to the state director’s position, and she’ll ensure that the voice of small business continues to be heard in Indianapolis.”
Robinson said, “Small business is the beating heart of Indiana’s economy, and I look forward to advocating on behalf of our small business members at the statehouse.”
