Texas Gov. Gregg Abbott has appointed Harlingen native and UTRGV accounting lecturer Jimmie Limon to the Texas Product Development and Small Business Incubator Board.
Limon has more than a decade of experience in financial and business. He previously served as CEO of New Age Construction Concepts Inc. in Harlingen, and as a mortgage broker at Source One Lending Corp. He has been with UTRGV and legacy institution UTPA since 2014. He earned a Master of Business Administration and a Master of Accounting from UTPA in 2012 and 2014, respectively.
The PDSBI provides financing to aid in the development, production and commercialization of new and improved products to foster and stimulate the development of small businesses in the state.
Limon’s term is for five years ending in 2023. The board consists of nine members, all appointed by the governor.
Limon said he hopes his involvement will benefit the Rio Grande Valley community in a positive way.
“I hope to raise awareness of the business community in my area to the board, and also educate those business individuals or companies and organizations in the Valley of the existence of this program and how it could benefit our local community,” Limon said.
The board will hold regular meetings in Austin and at various places and times scheduled by the board in formal sessions.
The other four recent appointees are:
- Jody Goehring, Austin.
- Manny Salazar, Kingsville.
- Melinda Moore, Lufkin.
- Colette Walls, Sinton.
