BALTIMORE, May 14, 2021 — Brown Advisory, a global, private and independent investment management and strategic advisory firm, is pleased to announce that David Robinson has been elected to serve on the firm’s Board of Directors.

Mr. Robinson brings significant expertise and experience to this role through his work at Admiral Capital Group, in leading Opportunity Zone investment strategies and in developing an exemplary charter school program in San Antonio.

Mr. Robinson is the co-founder of Admiral Capital Group, a real estate and private equity firm, and the founder of Carver Academy, a public charter school located in San Antonio, Texas. He spent 14 years in the NBA with the San Antonio Spurs and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in September 2009. In recognition of Mr. Robinson’s philanthropic leadership, the NBA named its annual community service award the “David Robinson Plaque.” He is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy with a degree in mathematics, and received a Master’s in Administration from the University of Incarnate Word.

“David embodies the qualities we seek in considering new directors for our firm. He knows us well and has built strong relationships with our team through our work together on Blueprint Local, an Opportunity Zone strategy that David has played an integral role in guiding and developing in San Antonio, Austin and across Texas,” said Mike Hankin, President and CEO of Brown Advisory. “Continually, he has demonstrated a willingness to challenge our views, which is something we expect and value from our directors."

“I’m honored to be able to join a firm that not only has a strong track record of performance, but a strong culture and willingness to continue to evolve and meet the needs of its clients,” said Mr. Robinson.

Brown Advisory relies on the experience, wisdom and judgment of an independent board to provide long-term strategic guidance and uncompromised oversight. The addition of Mr. Robinson further strengthens this support of the firm’s mission to deliver first-class performance, thoughtful strategic advice and the highest level of service to its clients.
