This year’s luncheon took place on Thursday, January 30 at Sheraton Brookhollow Hotel. We were provided with an insightful look at the Houston economy in 2020, specifically the various challenges facing companies that do business in our city.
Despite the current climate of economic uncertainty, we were encouraged by the news that events affecting the oil & gas industry on a national and global level should prove to be less serious for Houston’s economic outlook.
Our Involvement in the 2020 Economic Forecast Luncheon
Reynolds and Associates was a proud silver sponsor of this year’s economic forecast luncheon. We purchased two tables for our team and clients:
Reynolds team: Gene Reynolds, Daniel Garcia, Leigh Vitols, L’Rissa Padrezas, and Krista McCall.
Our clients and friends of the firm: Ben Hiltl (FSI Holdings, LLC), Al Herring & Matthew Herring (Herring Construction), Greg & Nikki Walls (Tejas Pallet & Crate Co.), and Mimi Parsons (OZK Bank).
In total, there were approximately 300 event participants at this year’s luncheon. We joined together focusing on important Houston business issues such as employment, interest rates, energy, and real estate.
Dr. Gilmer addressed uncertainty surrounding the global and Houston economic outlook in 2020. Our economy has traditionally been dependent on energy and oil & gas, which makes recent headlines about companies filing for bankruptcy, being delisted, or closing offices seem concerning.
