Meet Our Team

PTI Sports and Recreation Construction is a family business, created by Guylene and Terry Robertson. As the family business grew, so did our team. Between us we have two doctorates in education, several retired superintendents, certified playground safety inspectors (CPSI), and a professional engineer (PE), plus over 40 years in construction experience.

But we’re still family. We care about our community and our neighbors just like you do.

Guylene Robertson, Ed.D.

President

Dr. Robinson has 36 years of experience in education as a teacher, administrator, and a school district superintendent. An expert in her field, she has presented at local, state, and national education conferences. With all that experience she understands the challenges and goals of schools and other organizations who want to help their communities.

Dr. Robertson has won over $5 million in grants for her school districts. She understands how to secure funding for projects to help you provide the best playgrounds at the lowest cost to your organization. She and her husband, Terry, founded PTI Sports And Recreation Construction in 2001 to help schools and churches build safe recreation equipment. They wanted to guide community-focused organizations through the whole process of building playground equipment, from planning to completion when most companies just want to build equipment and go home.

Dr. Robertson is active in serving her local community. She volunteers on the Lake Livingston Rotary, the Childrenz Haven Board of Directors, the Livingston St. Luke’s Hospital Board of Directors, and Escapees Board of Directors. She loves to go glamping (you gotta camp with style, right?) with groups like Sisters on the Fly.
