    Ryan Francis, Business Owner

      I am a native of Houston; in 2001, I graduated from the University of Texas with a BA in Political Science.  I began my career in May of that year working on the energy desk, as a registered associate, for Prudential Securities and continued to become a junior broker for Wachovia Securities. In this role, I identified hedging opportunities for energy companies; and gave fundamental and technical advice for institutional, commercial and private client accounts.  It offered me a wonderful experience.    Following my five years on the banking side, I took a sales manager position for a midlevel private chemical company.  Since 2006, I have been responsible for growing and managing many commercial chemical accounts for Gulf Chemical International, from a sales, purchasing and inventory management position.   I bring this experience and enthusiasm to the exciting field of child development and education.  Along with my wife Ashley, we look forward to the wonderful opportunity ahead.
