Breakdown of the Show

This week we continue our discussion about “managing through a downturn” with three more CEOs in very different businesses.

  • As this is the second episode of the show, we realized we did not properly introduce ourselves and Texas Business Radio. Matt Register and Jay Curry talk about the purpose of the show and what they hope it will turn in to.
  • Paul Laberato, CEO of Billy Pugh, talks about how his company, after growing for almost sixty years has been hit by the $35 oil prices. He explains his strategy of expanding services/products being offered to their current clients and how that is saving Billy Pugh.
  • We talk with Pat Niekamp, Publisher of Texas CEO Magazine, about theur partnership with TBR and the bi-monthly Texas CEO Report. She then gives the first Texas CEO Report featuring Sweet Leaf Tea and Deep Eddy Vodka founder, Clayton Christopher.
  • Corey Prator, CEO and owner of Custom Business Software, describes his virtual software development company, which in 2015 alone grew 225%. His virtual business model is highly unique and product driven to meet his customer’s needs.
