CARLOS P. CRUZ
Carlos P. Cruz is a native Texan whose family has been here since Texas was its own country. He has been blessed with strong family values and deep roots. His sense of service and honor took him into enlistment in the US Army immediately after graduation and was assigned to a Heavy Combat Engineers unit where he was honorably discharged after 8 years of service as a reservist. Carlos attended UT Austin on an academic scholarship but left to pursue a business career in finance and management which spanned nearly 20 years.He was blessed to meet his wife whom he has been with for more than 20 years. His career grew to operational leadership in the U.S. and Mexico where they both lived until 2010. However, his passion for cultivating relationships and desire for service to the community guided him into mortgage lending where after three years had built a highly successful team of loan officers and operational staff. When Carlos is not working he can be found hunting in S. Texas, spending time with his family (dogs included), or playing in the mud with his Jeep.
