Tennessee Wildlife Federation is honored to welcome Bobby Pidgeon to its board of directors.
“Bobby has spent the majority of his career giving back to those in need and sharing his love for the outdoors,” said Ric Wolbrecht, chairman of the board of directors of Tennessee Wildlife Federation. “We are thrilled to have him serve on our board and help guide the Federation into the new decade.”
At three years old, Bobby remembers dove hunting with his dad and fishing at his grandparents cabin in Arkansas. And as a lifelong outdoorsman, Bobby served as a guide for Buckmasters Life Hunt where he guided wounded warriors for several years.
Although his roots are in Tennessee, he enjoys the occasional trip out west to elk hunt and fly fish.
“I’ve always believed in taking care of the environment. I’m looking forward to serving the Federation and giving back to something that’s been part of my life since the day I was born,” said Bobby. “I’m also looking forward to bringing the outdoors to more people and protecting our natural resources for everyone to enjoy.”
Bobby earned a degree in finance from The University of Memphis. After graduation, he worked at Coca-Cola Bottling Company and was vice president of corporate affairs. Part of his duties as vice president included working with nonprofits, charitable organizations, and on special events.
After Coca-Cola, Bobby went into the financial services industry as an investment consultant and most recently worked in the oil and gas industry acquiring leasehold interest.
He has served on a number of committees and fundraising boards benefiting organizations such as the American Cancer Society, the American Red Cross, and more.
Bobby currently serves as president of the Pidgeon family office where he manages agriculture and real estate properties.
