Bob Gilbert - The Leelanau Conservancy

Bob Gilbert - President

Bob Gilbert and his wife, Debbie, live on Good Harbor Bay.  Bob has been coming to the region since he was two months old and he and Debbie have had a second home in Leelanau County since 1975.  Huge fans of the Leelanau Conservancy’s work to preserve our landscape, they have been Sustainers for more than twenty years. Bob received both his BA and his JD from the University of Michigan.  After serving as Chair and the first CEO of Michigan’s largest and oldest law firm, Bob happily retired to Of Counsel status and Leelanau County became his primary residence.  Among other charitable activities, he has been active with a number of land conservancies and has served on the board of Ann Arbor’s Legacy Conservancy. He feels “privileged to be able to serve on the board of one of the country’s most successful land conservancies.”
