“It came highly recommended to me by people in leadership roles whom I know and trust. Joining YTEXAS made sense given it is a great resource for helping leaders expand businesses throughout the state.”

Masato Yoshikawa, CEOKubota Tractor Corporation

“We have limited opportunity to communicate with corporate leaders. YTEXAS provides us those opportunities, which I appreciate. I don't know if other states have that kind of organization.”

Avi Kahn, CEOHilti North America

“We joined YTEXAS because we really believe in their mission; helping great companies not just establish here in Texas but also, once they are here, develop their network and make that transition into Texas.
We moved here as an organization two years ago. I personally moved here and have found the resources of YTEXAS to be very helpful.”

Hugh Forrest, FounderSXSW

“Everything we do in life is about connecting; connecting with new people, with new ideas. So much of what YTEXAS is about is enhancing those connections and accelerating those connections, which only leads to good things.”

TRACYE MCDANIEL, CEOMCDANIEL STRATEGY ECOSYSTEMS

“YTexas has great alignment with what we’re doing to attract and engage companies. By partnering with an organization that represents CEOs, we can have those corporate leaders serve as ambassadors to sell our state. Having relationships with CEOs who invest here is important. They become great champions when you’re trying to attract businesses.”

Robbie Briggs, CEOBriggs Freeman Sotheby's International Realty

“One of the YTEXAS members told me that I made an introduction that closed two big pieces of business with him. That's fun for me, that's exciting.”

SETH GORDON, CEOSETHICA VENTURES

“After relocating from New York, I joined YTEXAS to network with other CEOs. The caliber of the members is second-to-none. I have already struck up meaningful relationships with members and my company is currently working with a few CEOs to solve on-site issues.”
