My name is Jesus “Omar” Gallegos, the new President of the Marketing Educators of Texas (MET). I am a Business and Marketing Educator at Brackenridge High School in the heart of San Antonio. I serve on the Marketing Education Association Board, our national organization, and President-Elect of the American Marketing Association - San Antonio Chapter. I am committed to the advancement of the marketing industry, marketing education, and the professional and student members. I believe marketing knowledge empowers people in their personal and professional lives as well as enhances business development and growth, the backbone of our country’s economic success.
With that, I invite you to join me on MET’s quest to expand marketing education across Texas and beyond. I’m tired of hearing about the good old days of teaching marketing and how many programs have been cut. I think instead of asking the powers to be to not take our programs and money away, we should focus on the expansion of Marketing Education and promote the benefits of it.
