Bob Dickie

Robert Dickie, III, President

Bob Dickie joined Crown Financial Ministries as interim COO in January 2011 and on July 1, 2011 was named Crown's President with the unanimous support of the Board of Directors. As a decorated Air Force Officer and former CEO for an international training and sales materials service provider that he helped to more than triple in size from 2004 to 2009 Bob is a versatile leader with a proven track record throughout his military, business management, and non-profit career. His work has spanned several industries and included both high growth and turnaround environments for multiple companies. Before he entered the private sector, Bob served for 6.5 years as a Captain in the United States Air Force in various assignments that led to extensive duty in Europe and Asia. As a Captain, he was hand selected to be the personal Aide-de-Camp to General William Begert, Commander of the Pacific Air Forces.  On many visits to Washington, DC, he met with members of Congress and Pentagon officials. He was in daily contact with the highest levels of US Government, foreign militaries, and civilian and industry leaders. This invaluable experience and insight into the operation of industry and government would prove to be extremely valuable in his professional career.

He and his wife Brandi have been happily married for 18 years and have been blessed with five precious children.  They both are graduates of the University of Tennessee in Knoxville where Brandi also earned her Master's Degree in Deaf Education.  Bob earned his Master's Degree from the University of Arkansas in Industrial Engineering and has begun the Harvard Business School Executive Education Program.

Bob and Brandi currently live in Knoxville, TN with their five children and two golden retrievers.  Bob is a mountain climber and competitive runner and Brandi is an avid photographer. They love all outdoor activities, reading, and spending time with their family and serving where they are called. You may contact Robert Dickie at
