Breakthrough Moment: “Shortly after I joined TDP, I started to see how we could, together, make our clients’ dreams come to life with an easier process and broader menu of services tailored to fit their needs.”

As a broker and partner with Torgerson Design Partners (TDP), Griffin Bobbett has been involved in many successful commercial projects in Ozark, including the relocation of the Ozark Fire Protection District and the Christian County Ambulance District. Through his volunteer efforts with the Chamber of Commerce, he also helped Ozark to safely enjoy Christmas celebrations during the pandemic.

With a passion for real estate and development on a local and national level, Bobbett brings service and perspective to the growing architecture and commercial-design firm of TDP in Ozark. “I enjoy helping developers make their process smoother, whether it’s through zoning studies, site selection or just bridging the communication gap with the local jurisdiction,” Bobbett says. Bobbett worked directly with the Fire and Ambulance districts in Ozark to find the perfect property to better serve the community. “The new locations will tremendously improve response times and be a landing zone for training and classes,” he says.

Bobbett also serves on several volunteer boards including the Ozark Chamber of Commerce. When Ozark had to cancel its 2020 Christmas Parade for the first time in 56 years, Bobbett helped find COVID-safe Christmas options for the Ozark community through lighting up the square and adding a Christmas mailbox for kids to deliver letters to Santa. They even enlisted emergency personnel to drive their trucks every Friday through the square with Santa on top waving and collecting the letters.

Bobbett is poised to take over as Chairman of the Board for the chamber next year and is working with the Historic River District group that’s focsed on revitilization efforts in downtown Ozark. TDP is donating design, construction and administration services for the new gazebo renovation and expansion that will provide seating, meeting space and a venue for live music on the square. “We know this is going to make downtown the place to be, the true heart of Ozark,” Bobbett says.

“In the next 10 years, I hope to make Ozark the destination for the Southwest Missouri region,” Bobbett says. “We are poised for huge growth in tourism and development, and I plan to be a part of that.”
