Chairman’s Letter

Friends,

As Time Magazine’s first-ever guest editor, Microsoft founder Bill Gates has been citing reasons in his articles to be optimistic about the future and the progress the world is making toward improvements. On the local front, we are also witnessing much optimism among our clients and it seems that is shared by the majority of Houston business owners.

According to a recent small business owner report by Bank of America, 74 percent of Houston entrepreneurs are confident about an improving local economy, and 57 percent are confident that the national economy will improve. One more statistic: 73 percent of Houston entrepreneurs expect their revenue to increase this year. Good news!

Houston has its share of business cycles. For now, let’s appreciate the optimism and continue moving forward with business plans and personal goals this second half of the year.

SEARCH Homeless Services Transforms Lives

On a personal note, I have been involved with SEARCH Homeless Services since 2010 and have been serving on the Board of Directors for the past three years. On July 1, I am honored to become Chairman of this important organization. Our vision is nothing less than a Houston without homelessness. The staff and volunteers of SEARCH work hard to pursue a mission of providing hope, creating opportunity and transforming the lives of men, women and children who are trying to break free from the cycle of poverty and homelessness.

I hope you will consider joining us at one of SEARCH’s fund raising events and help impact our goals.

Labor & Employment Law

We are proud to be ranked by the Houston Business Journal as one of the top Houston-area Labor & Employment Law Firms. We have an excellent practice in employment law and litigation, and we are consistently counseling clients in managing workforce issues and challenges. Let us know how we can help you.

Regards,

Chris Hanslik
Chairman
