After thirty-one years with the company, I am stepping down from the role of Chief Operating Officer Houston and will be retiring on March 31, 2023. Mr. Victor S. Gonzalez Jr. of Corpus Christi will be stepping in to help out. More details in a future post from Ray Bailey.

It has been a great run, but now is the time for me to attend to some of those items on "the list".

"The days are long, but the years are short." I don't know who said that line, but it seems appropriate.

Do you still have the list?

It has been a great place to build a career. Special thanks to Ray for taking a chance on me back in 1992.

Thanks to everyone for all of your hard work.

Hopefully I'll be seeing you at the rodeo.
