Since becoming a Christian at age 29, Robert Beaman has extensive retail business and share group facilitation experience. Robert says, “My adventure with Christ has been the most exciting adventure imaginable.” Having served as President and EVP of large regional retail chains, Robert led significant growth initiatives in unit growth, sales expansion, expense reduction and a TQM process that saw dramatic improvement in employee morale and turnover.
Robert retired from his business career in 2001 and served as Executive pastor of Englewood Baptist Church for five years. In 2006 Robert launched the C12 franchise for Eastern North Carolina. Since that launch, C12 East Carolina, now C12 Mid Atlantic, has become one of C12’s largest franchise territories now serving more than 300 Business Owners and Key Players. He says “C12 has been the most rewarding and fulfilling part of my business career”.
Robert is married to Janet, his high school sweetheart. They have two daughters and six grandchildren. His hobbies include time with grand kids, rose gardening, hunting, and fishing. Robert currently serves on two boards, a local nonprofit, Your Choice Resource Center and an advisory board for a multi-state family owned business with more than 10,000 employees.
