Bobby Wagner’s roots run deep in Destin’s community, from owning a small business, directing a non-profit, and serving in local government. Bobby has had 17 years of growing strong connection and community in Destin. Bobby attended Destin Middle School, later Fort Walton Beach High School, and returned to Destin after college at Troy University to begin his business.

Bobby’s experience gives him a unique insight into helping small businesses and large corporations tell their story in Destin.
Networking is more than business for Bobby, it is about gaining collaborative relationships that span a lifetime, and finding a place of service in the community. After volunteering at over 50 non-profits, he finally took root at one place specifically, an environmental non-profit called Trees on the Coast, where he has been a board member since 2017 and was appointed Executive Director in 2020. Trees on the coast have planted 567 trees, collected over 5,000 lbs of trash, and organized 100s of volunteers.
