They say Texans think big and Rocky Gill is no exception. The successful Express Employment Professionals franchisee in Tyler, TX has expanded his territory to include the Bryan and Brenham markets.
Over the past 19 years, Rocky’s Tyler office has netted numerous awards including Express Franchisee of the Year, as well as the Tyler Area Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year. Now, he is excited about serving clients in these two new towns.
Sharing His Secrets to Success
Rocky didn’t start out in the staffing industry. When he made the jump to staffing, he was a CPA and working as corporate controller for a medical center. He credits the Express business model for fueling his success.
“Everything I learned about the industry, I learned from Express,” Rocky said. “I am the poster child for someone who follows the Express system and works hard, and experiences how well it works. It’s a proven system.
“My dad has always been in sales most of my life and he worked for someone else,” Rocky said. “I watched him work so hard for someone else’s profit, and it inspired me to own my own business and drive an organization myself. And 19 years later, it has been wonderful.”
Enjoying the Express Company Culture
“The great thing about Express is that you have a culture that is heavy on integrity, on putting people over profits,” Rocky said. “Express puts a strong value on long-term relationships. Express franchisees are true professionals who are working hard to stand out in their field and give clients the very best service. “
As someone who likes to give back, Rocky also appreciates the company focus on community service. Rocky has served in a leadership role for several organizations, including the United Way of Smith County, the “Hope For 100 Committee” at Green Acres Baptist Church, Workforce Solutions East Texas, and the Better Business Bureau of East Texas.
