Our June speaker is hot, hot, hot! Just like Mrs. Renfro's beloved salsa varieties. Join us Wednesday, June 20th for lunch with Doug Renfro, President of Renfro Foods & Mrs. Renfro's Salsa. In an encore performance, Doug shares what smaller companies can do to level the playing field and market their brands in our big world. And yes, there will be FREE salsa!

At Mrs. Renfro's, Doug is responsible for new product development, risk management, legal, human resources and information systems.  Additionally, Doug works with Becky Renfro Borbolla, Vice President of Renfro Foods, to manage sales, pricing, finance and accounting, public relations, marketing, social media, international sales and trade shows.

Reared in the family business, Doug has spent a majority of his career working in a number of different capacities at Renfro Foods. As a teenager, he worked in production, while in college he weighed out all the spices for daily production. After earning a bachelor's degree from the University of North Texas, Doug worked in the finance and accounting departments for a large information services company in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. During his seven-year tenure outside the family business, he was promoted to Divisional Finance Manager, earned his Master's degree from Southern Methodist University and qualified for his Certified Management Accountant designation. Doug then re-joined Renfro Foods in 1992.

Involved in a number of professional and community organizations, Doug is a past president of the Tarrant Area Food Bank, the Texas Food Processors Association and the North Texas Food Sales Association. Doug currently serves on the executive committees of Casa Mañana, a not-for-profit theater organization and the Botanical Research Institute of Texas, a non-profit conservation and preservation institute. Doug is also on the McDonald Observatory Board of Visitors, the Chile Pepper Institute's Advisory Council and TCU's Neeley School of Business Entrepreneurship Advisory Board.
