As a Round Rock Express Senior Vice President of Marketing, what are your proudest accomplishments?
Even though it seems like I just started here out of college, it has been 15 years! I have been blessed to work for a great company that cares about its people.

On a fun front, I’m specifically proud of the Willie Nelson bobblehead in 2015, the Round Rock desktop replica this year, and our marketing team for their creative, fun ways to entertain Express fans!
