By listening, Robbie learned people skills and decision making at a young age.  He grew up in a small town on the Chesapeake Bay. The eldest son in a family owned, seasonal business: planting and harvesting oysters in the winter and fishing boat rentals in the summer.  Constantly around people, at 12 he identified another demand from his family’s customers-crabs.  After obtaining permission from his grandfather, building his own traps (pots) and identifying the best location, he opened his own crabbing business on the Chesapeake Bay.  

Building on those basics, Robbie brings 30 years’ experience in Sales, Operations, Engineering and Administration to his candidacy.  He has experience leading global organizations such as AT&T successfully managing a $350M P&L for the Los Angeles area and more local organizations such as ambulance provider American Medical Response (AMR).  Robbie’s achievements include “Innovator of the Year” at AMR and he has been featured twice in the Sprint Annual Report for ability to get things done.  He continues to receive endorsements from business leaders and customers.  Recently receiving the following: “Robbie Pitts is one of the most creative and resourceful leaders I have worked with in my technology career” and “Leveraging Robbie's deal making capabilities in this complex partnered environment was a great experience for me and my team.”

In 2000, Robbie received a promotion and corporate transfer to Orange County.  His wife Elizabeth Ussher, a Southern California native, wanted to live in Villa Park which she knew to be a community that offered a great quality of life including social, ethical and moral values close to theirs.

Since coming to Villa Park, Robbie and Elizabeth have immersed themselves into their community.  Elizabeth is a Past President of the Women’s League and currently on the Advisory Board.  They have been involved in supporting Villa Park Rotary, Junior Paramedic program, Jonathan Jaques Children’s Cancer Center, Sons of the American Legion Squad 291 and the North American Foundation for the Cure of Diabetes to name a few. They have taken a trophy in 6 Boat Parades and for several years furnished a fully staffed and operational ambulance through Robbie’s affiliation with AMR to the Villa Park Halloween celebration. The purpose of the paramedics visit was to expose children to the life saving aspects of the ambulance and help allay their fears fear. 

Robbie is currently the Director of Business Operations for On Target, a fast growing Irvine based company, recognized as one of the Top Places to Work in OC by the OC Register. On Target provides technology solutions to help large and small businesses improve their bottom line through technology-based operational solutions.

They are blessed with two sons, two daughters and four grandchildren-the oldest of which has recently enlisted in the United States Navy.

Robbie’s goal, should he be elected, is to utilize our city’s foundational values, as well as his business accumen and innovation to help Villa Park continue to flourish as a community.
