Louis is also the CEO and President of Metropolitan Infrastructure, PLLC, which is a member of the Rowlett Chamber of Commerce. Louis is also a member of the Rowlett Chamber of Commerce's Leadership Rowlett Class 28 and a participant of the Rowlett City Academy.
Before founding Metropolitan Infrastructure, Louis started his engineering career with the Texas Highway Department, where he learned to design and build roads and bridges of many types and sizes. After fifteen years of engineering practice, Louis was blessed to have the opportunity to start his own firm, Metropolitan Infrastructure, PLLC. MI is a local engineering consulting firm that specializes in assisting municipalities around the DFW area with their infrastructure needs. Founding MI allowed Louis to focus on developing relationships with his clients on a more meaningful level and has allowed him to become more intimately involved with the projects that he has guided from concept through construction. This experience has honed Louis's leadership skills and challenged him to grow as a person and as a businessman. Despite significant challenges such as the Great Recession, and other changes in the market, Metropolitan Infrastructure has survived, grown and thrived on challenging projects.
Starting his own business has taught Louis about the significance of sound business planning, hard work, dedication and creatively thinking to differentiate his firm in a very competitive market. Operating a successful business has given Louis the respect for other small business owners and entrepreneurs who take tremendous risks in pursuit of their personal aspirations. As such, Louis is a strong supporter of small and local businesses. Through his entrepreneurial experience, Louis has gained key leadership and technical skills that make him the strongest candidate for Rowlett City Council.
For over 16 years, Metropolitan Infrastructure has been creating entry-level jobs for engineering graduates and leadership roles for engineers with more experience. MI succeeded due to the close collaborations of a talented team of individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds and technical specialties. The company has also been blessed to have earned the business of many fine clients, many of whom have become close friends with Louis over the years.
Louis says that his life journey has prepared him to be a dedicated leader and to use his professional experience and talents to improve the quality of life to benefit the members of our community. Louis hopes to have the opportunity to bring these skills and experiences to City Council--and promises to keep our City’s interest the top priority.
