CEO / Founder
Thank you for visiting our website,
I was born and raised in West Texas. My career started in 1981, working for a small Industrial Instrument & Controls Distributor/Representative, while attending night school to obtain a college degree. 10 years later, I was a proud graduate from The University of Texas Permian Basin. Through the following 12-13 years, I maintained this same career path in this same industry.
In 1994 the opportunity was presented to me to start Slater Controls, Inc. Through the last 25+ years, Slater Controls has been fortunate enough to expand, opening offices in Arizona, New Mexico, and Amarillo, Texas.
Today as years ago, our team and people are the driving force behind Slater Controls and its success. Slater Controls is proud to acknowledge the same people that started Slater Controls in 1994 are still with the company today. Furthermore, several manufactures that I sold their products back in 1981 when first starting, are still today represented by Slater Controls today. Ethics, perseverance, hard work, and fun are all considered the essence of our existence and our motto to achieving success.

Since Joining Slater Controls in 2009, I have developed a strong sense of purpose - the purpose that starts and ends with the company employees and customers in mind.
This employee and customer-centricity makes Slater Controls a great place to work.
During my time with the company, I have learned that individual responsibility, hard work and ethical behavior were paramount in attaining long term success.
I grew up in Texas and New Mexico, and have strong roots in both environments.
I’ve been fortunate to serve on the Board of the Permian Basin Rehab Center giving the opportunity for people to get speech, physical, occupational therapies and other services for those in need.
I’ve dutifully served in my church and currently working on the Tech team at Stonegate Fellowship in Odessa.
I also enjoy cycling and photography, and of course spend much of the time supporting my family.
