I started working for Bud and his father, wet behind the ears, and just out of college at 22 years of age. I have had the privilege of growing with the Payne family into a Valley wide business. In my 30+ years working with the Group, we have satisfied tens of thousands of sales customers and millions of service customers. Working with a Christian-based family-run business has been a rewarding and valuable opportunity for me to do my part to make us more of a driving force in the Rio Grande Valley. Having the opportunity to develop a lifelong career with an organization such as ours has been the opportunity of a lifetime.
