Mayor Bobby Wagner

Current Term


Biographical Information

Bobby Wagner’s roots run deep in Destin’s community. Since 6th grade attending Destin Middle School, Bobby has grown up right here in Destin. From a young age playing the trumpet became his first passion that grew into a scholarship to Troy University. Once returning home from college, Bobby established his own video production company at 21. The seeds began to develop from that point on, and the roots started to grow inside the community. Networking is more than business for Bobby; it is about gaining relationships and finding a sense of place in the community. Through organizations, local chambers, and leadership courses, he finally took root at one place, specifically, an environmental non-profit called Trees on the Coast. He has been a board member for several years and is now the executive director. Bobby Wagner believes in the “givers-gain” philosophy, and when we give back to our community and environment, we all gain from it. Now serving on the Destin City Council, Bobby will work together to beautify our home through sustainable initiatives.
