Welcoming the Newest Team Members
By Mary Tipps
TLR is a small organization, but we’re one big family. So when our family grows, we like to celebrate it! This week, our senior chairman, Dick Weekley, hosted a reception to welcome our new president, Lilyanne McClean, and our two new board members, Marc Watts and Michael Weekley, to the team. Lilyanne, Marc and Michael have hit the ground running since joining TLR, so this reception was a fantastic opportunity to introduce them to some of our longtime supporters in a more informal setting.
After the reception, we had a wonderful team dinner where we all got to catch up on the latest happenings with children, grandchildren, trips, new homes and everything in between. Since our team is split up between our Houston and Austin offices, it’s always a treat when we can get everyone together for some quality time.
Part of the reason why TLR works so efficiently is because we have a dedicated team that works hard and works together extraordinarily well. Some of our team members have been with TLR since the beginning, which is a testament to the strong family environment we have in the office. Having the support and confidence of your coworkers makes all the difference, especially when you’re working long hours on intricate topics. It’s this dynamic that helps us effectively work to improve our state for generations of Texans to come.
