Coburn Supply Company Honors Long-Serving Retiree
BEAUMONT, TX – In October, Coburn’s honored General Manager Bill Geyser who retired after 46 years of service with the company.
After receiving his MBA from TCU, Bill started as an outside salesman at the Galveston, Texas, branch. With hard work and dedication, he became the Galveston branch manager before taking over the Beaumont distributorship. From there, Bill went on to become the first general manager for Coburn’s East Texas region and a member of the executive team.
Executive Vice President Michael Maloney says, “Bill traditionally leads the company in sales, but that’s not what we value most about him. Bill’s colleagues say that he always shows his fellow employees love, commitment, and dedication. It’s especially touching to me that so many use the word ‘mentor’ to describe him. After 46 years, it’s hard to say goodbye, but we are grateful for all his service to Coburn’s.”
He will enjoy his free time with his wife. Susan, his family and grandchildren.
