2017 was a banner year for GMR in so many ways! Highlighted by the super exciting October 13, 2017 Groundbreaking on our new offices at 1629 Smirl Drive in Heath, Texas. GMR’s very own Jamie Killough, CEO, showcased the significance of this event in her invitation.
“Dear GMR Family,
It isn’t every day someone moves into a new house…or a new office building! On October 13, 2017, GMR will begin its 27th year in business!!!! Hard to believe we are over a quarter of a century old! For the past 15 years we have called #5 Horizon Court our GMR home. As we grew, we expanded into #4 Horizon Court.
Over the course of these years we have seen God do many amazing and mighty things – He has taken us on a journey through the highs and lows of business, of relationships, of growth, of development, of change, and to places many of us would never have otherwise seen! It is now time for us to move on to our next place!
For quite some time we have been working behind the scenes to determine the right place for GMR to call home for many more journeys to come. WE HAVE FOUND THAT PLACE and are ready to break ground! More details to come when we can gather together to share face to face, but for now I would like to share a couple renderings of our next GMR home.”
