Dallas - Effective January 1, 2016, Brad Gross, Partner, and Shea Kracheck, Principal, at Lane Gorman Trubitt, PLLC ("LGT"), have become board members of local organizations. Gross joins the 2016 TEXO board, a Dallas/Fort Worth local collaboration of two national construction industry organizations, and Kracheck accepted a board role at the Commercial Real Estate for Women's Dallas Chapter ("CREW Dallas").

"What an honor and privilege it will be to serve on TEXO's board with these great leaders of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex construction industry," says Gross. "I look forward to contributing in every way possible in advancing the mission, vision and goals of TEXO."
