Mayor Dee Margo announced Thursday that the Quality Texas Foundation Board of Directors has elected City Manager Tommy Gonzalez as Chair of the Board of Directors for 2017 – 2019.
“Mr. Gonzalez is highly respected across the State of Texas for his deliverance of quality and excellence,” said Dr. Mac McGuire, Chief Executive Officer of the Quality Texas Foundation. “In the 22 years I have been involved with the Quality of Texas Foundation, Mr. Gonzalez is the first City Manager to be elected as Chair of the Board of Directors. Previous chairs have all been from for-profit companies. The appointment of City Manager to the board is an attribute to the quality of the City of El Paso.”
“We are proud of Mr. Gonzalez and I know he will represent the City well. The Quality Texas Foundation is a highly respected and renowned organization that El Paso is honored to be associated with,” said El Paso Mayor Dee Margo.
The Quality Texas Foundation Board of Directors consists of 22 members from various organizations across the State of Texas, including CEOs from non-profits, for-profits, hospitals, and manufacturing companies.
The Quality Texas Foundation is a non-profit 501(c) 3 corporation that evolved from a concept to organize and deliver quality awareness seminars across the state.
Gonzalez’s election took place at the Quality Texas Foundation Board of Directors 24th Annual Quest for Excellence Conference in late June.
