Dawn Best

Business Development Manager


With a penchant for innovative hair styles and a fine cigar, Dawn Best’s background as a lobbyist, legal assistant, political advisor, and most recently, small business owner has enabled her to contribute to some of the Commonwealth’s most significant initiatives.  Always fun, never dull, and frequently on the move, Dawn is known within her close-knit circle of friends as the #WeekendNomad.  She can be found anywhere, doing anything; from snowmobiling in the winter, to competitive road cycling in the summer.

A combination of Jersey spunk and Virginia refinery, Dawn’s been in business development since college and knows firsthand just about every ‘piece of dirt’ within Virginia and Northeast North Carolina.  We know that Dawn’s strong record of political and legislative activities, project management, and solicitation pursuit analysis with an emphasis on teaming relationships uniquely prepares her to grow F&R’s market share and develop business throughout Virginia and beyond.
