Including work for one year in Reston knowing people like James W. Todd, who were president of Reston Town center and the General Manger of the development? He equated his job to being a mayor of a city. He is now the president of Peterson companies in Fairfax, Virginia. My boss was Chuck Myers but his boss and President and my friend hired me til he died, Bill Magnus.
Bill Roher was then the President of Gulf Chemicals for whom I built his offices on the upper floors in two Houston Center.
This was a job, which definitely changed our life and perspective on the corporate- business world. It gave us the stature and position in Houston society and in the business world. I was a grade code 17, top manager status, just below corporate vice president and had access to bank accounts and corporate decisions about expenditures. I was really friendly with several of the company presidents I serviced and several of the other gulf Oil mangers. I was able to be the gulf Oil representative to all of Houston’s cultural societies and we spent lots of time with the leading river Oaks families.
I learned to be a corporate middle class American. It was a position we were to experience and enjoy but was short lived and temporary.
The gulf executives taught delegation of Authority and Manage by Objective concepts to me. I incorporated these ideas into the policies and procedures I wrote for the contraction process. I was the kind of project manager that my assistant Frank Sorrels once commented to Christina after we returned from one of our vacations that the entire contractors and design team was waling around the site as though they had eaten “cat-nip”.
University Of Houston: 1978-1979: Part- time: the Dean who saw in me a star and potential to fill a gap hired me. He was right, the students were crazy about me, my teaching style, course content and personality. Victor Lundy also taught at the school at the same time. I got The astronaught Joe Allen to team teach a course on the future and my course on Real estate development was a hit. We had several class parties at our home and I even helped some of the student’s get a job.
Schumacher Realty: 1978-1979: Full Time: Owned by Jon Schumacher (wife Ann Roselle). Till this day Jon and Anne remain our good friends. Jon is about 16 years my senior and a great gourmet cook. He found us our house in Houston and later helped us sell it at twice what paid. He helped us get our real estate sales, then brokers license and facilitated our earning a bit while working part time at University of Houston. They live in Houston and have a time-share in Sanibel. Anne was born in Lee County and loves to visit. She still has a business in Houston but gave up her apartment rental business years ago. We had great times going to Realtor meetings, open houses, viewing, etc. Jon taught me how to sell and close. He is a first class pro and good friend.
At lunch Jon and I would go to Pizza Hut and gorge ourselves or go to an opening for free food.
I once visited them at there home and could not get in the door because the bell was no where to be found. Finally, I phoned and Anne came out and opened the door. We are great pals. I remember Anne and I have in g a discussion about what I was doing and she blurted out :”how does that help us”? I t was the corollary to Gerald Dirstine’s comment “ Why should I help your ministry”? When John Cicotti and I met with him to discuss a strategy to raise money for our Leipzig and Saudi mission,
Vince and Elkins:
Inspections and expert witness. Young lawyers I met at Yale meetings invited me to be one of their expert witness and I inspectected and prepared reports ON motels and other building about workmanship and materials. In Florida I have discovered that Vince and Elkins provide the state of Florida with accounting and analysis for its retirement fund.
Texas A&M: 1979-1981: Full Time ((42) I responded to newspaper add in Houston chronicle and within days got a call for an interview. I recall virtually being hired on the phone because we so broke at the item that I did not want to make the trip to College Station unless I knew they were serious. I was interviewed by the department chairman Jim Marsh and met Pat Maher and Carol Claycamp. I was hired as Associate professor and additionally given graduate teaching responsibilities so that that they could maximize my pay. The earnings were about 25% below our expenses and were doomed to fissile. At first I commuted from Houston until they announced that I could not teach at both U of Houston and A& M at the same time. Dean Raymond Reed.
