Meet Don Law

It all began in 1978-- After four long, wonderful years of football and class, I had graduated from The University of Southern Mississippi with a degree in Industrial Management. It was my love for football that brought me to this one-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The former president, Frank Johnston, was an alumni and former player for the Golden Eagles and was on the hunt for new traders. Thankfully, I was the man introduced. Now, after 44 years, It has been a blessing to see how much the company has grown over the years. It has been such a pleasure to work with a team that has such a good reputation for character and integrity. I look forward to many more.
