Barbour Selects Robinson As Medicaid Director

(Jackson, Miss.)—Governor Haley Barbour announced today that Iuka native and long time public servant Dr. Robert “Bob” L. Robinson will serve as Executive Director of the Division of Medicaid. Interim Director Bobby Moody will return to his role as Deputy Director of Administration for the agency.

“I chose Bob to serve in this position because of his leadership capabilities and many years of service in state government,” Governor Barbour said. “He served as Commissioner of Public Welfare, which is the predecessor of the Medicaid program today and understands the inner workings of state government. After a nation-wide search, he is the best person to fill this important role.”

Robinson is a graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi, and received his doctorate of business administration from Mississippi State University. He has served the state as Executive Director of the Mississippi Agricultural and Industrial Board, Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Job Development and Training, State Personnel Director, and most recently as Executive Director of the Mississippi Department of Transportation.

“Health care is an urgent need for many Mississippians, especially in the wake of Hurricane Katrina,” Robinson said. “That’s why I am honored to have the opportunity to lead the Medicaid division and hope to continue the progress established by this Administration.”

Robinson will begin serving in his new position October 1.
