This year marks Kirksey's 53rd anniversary, and as per our tradition, we celebrated with a toast to John Kirksey's vision, recent promotions, and a year's worth of accomplishments. During the toast, several employees across all three Kirksey offices in Houston, Austin, and Dallas were elevated to new positions within the firm and we announced this year's employee awards. Kirksey's newly promoted individuals exemplifiy the firm's spirit through their dedication to the growth and prosperity of their fellow employees and the firm.
