We Are Alpha.

Family milestones matter.

Marriage.  Birth.  Baptism. Graduation. Anniversaries. Leaving home. Reunions – just to name a few.

At work, we continue our internal celebration of our 35th anniversary this year.  In looking back, there are so many events, clients, and projects that could each be lifted up as key points in our history.

We decided to call out the Alpha Testing milestones that have resulted in new offices and a new sense of ‘family,’ as we have grown beyond the original office.  Today, we have Alpha ‘family units’ in Houston, San Antonio, Fort Worth, and multiple locations in Dallas.

The professional growth steps involved have paralleled many of the life milestones we all share.

Brian, Ken, Tony and I encourage and celebrate that ‘tribal’ sense of belonging that comes from being a part of an Alpha Testing regional operation.   Look around, and you can proudly say “WE are Alpha today.” Celebrate the success and the unique aspects of your region!

We hope you join us in celebrating the other Alpha teams in Houston, San Antonio, Fort Worth, Dallas, Balch Springs, and Farmers Branch.  We – all of us – are Alpha Today.

It is an honor to work alongside each of you, in every location, as we all continue to reach toward our Vision 2020 goals!

Jeff Wilt, PG
Executive Principal

Donuts and Diapers

Our Houston team threw a Donuts and Diapers baby shower last week for two dads-to-be, Nathan Macicek and Joe Culley.

Right on cue, Miles Edward Macicek made his debut on Monday, May 21st. We’d like to think Miles wanted to make sure his dad could enjoy the party!

Congratulations to the Macicek and Culley families!
