Robbie Roberts is a local businessman and entrepreneur. He attended Lovington public schools and obtained his B.S. in Chemical Engineering from New Mexico State University-Las Cruces campus in 1984. After a few years of working in Fort Worth, Texas he and his wife Allyson chose to return to Lovington to live and raise their two children in the same hometown atmosphere they themselves had enjoyed in their youth.
Over the past 50 years, Robbie has witnessed the city’s adaptation to the cyclical nature of the surrounding oilfield and recognizes the need for area business diversification that is essential to help stabilize the local economy during the “boom” and “bust” years. He is excited about the opportunities facing the city, and would like to see further infrastructure development to facilitate industrial, commercial, and residential growth.
