My wife (Barbara) and I have lived full-time in Blackstone for the past 14 months and have been in the Vistancia community since 2010. We chose to buy a home in Blackstone for two reasons: the welcoming and friendly members of Blackstone Country Club (joined in December 2016), many of which are homeowners in the Blackstone community, and the quality and privacy of the neighborhood.
I retired two years ago as CEO/President of a property and casualty insurance company in Dallas. I have over 30 years of management, executive, and corporate Board experience in my 35-year career. Strengths that I will bring to the Board are leadership, financial, organizational, budgeting, and communication skills, along with commercial insurance expertise.
I am fiscally conservative and have a collaborative management style. I graduated from the University of Missouri with a bachelor’s degree in economics and finance. We have lived in many different places and have experienced many different HOAs. We have purchased resale and built custom and semi-custom homes. Blackstone has been one of our best experiences.
Being retired, I have the time and passion for an active role on the Board of Directors. I am committed to keeping a good balance in maintaining our community’s appearance while upholding community standards, making it an even better place to live, and keeping the HOA financially sound.
