A respected Dallas entrepreneur, Micheal Albert Hernandez III heads D & M Leasing as chief executive officer. He also has a strong connection with the Brownsville community, where he was born and raised. Through the PAC OP 10.33, Mike Hernandez III focuses on a Gulf Coast region that suffers from high unemployment, despite a location strategically near the Mexico border.
With OP 10.33, Mike Hernandez III aims to increase regional economic activity in ways that help local residents build a better future. In December 2016, he was selected by the Brownsville Avenger as “Person of the Year.” This recognition reflected his high-profile mission to turn around “the city that always sleeps.” In particular, he brought to the table not only an action blueprint, but also funds to turn his plans into reality in areas such as politics and education.
In making the selection, the Avenger opined that Mr. Hernandez appears to be focused on effecting long-term community change and predicted that 2017 will emerge as “an even bigger and better year” for OP 10.33. The organization aims to raise $10 million in community investment within the next several years.
