Executive Development Partners

TEXO Executive Development Partners (EDP) is an elite leadership group of rising executives and middle & senior managers in the North Texas construction community that unite together to grow + serve + connect. This year-long program gathers a cohort of 30-40 top-performing leaders to the table on a monthly basis to:

  • Build solid, lasting relationships with industry colleagues
  • Troubleshoot ideas, challenges, and opportunities as a group
  • Hear from high-caliber speakers & executive coaches

Each year, the programming is customized to align with the topics requested in the new members’ application forms and feedback received from the previous year’s group.

The group is self-led by a steering committee of alumni from the previous year’s cohort who volunteer to remain in the program for a second year to guide the new group and cultivate the vision of EDP moving forward.

2023 EDP Steering committee:
  • John Black, GDA Contractors
  • Jesse Borhaug, Birch Contraction
  • Sindhu Gundimeda, Texas Instruments
  • Kyle Pacheco, Lane Gorman Trubitt
