Gov. Gregg Abbott has appointed Harlingen native and UTRGV accounting lecturer Jimmie Limon to the Texas Product Development and Small Business Incubator Board. 

“It is a great honor to be able to serve, first and foremost our community and secondly our governor,” said Limon. Several things have prepared me for this, such as my involvement in academia, my membership in different associations in the Rio Grande Valley, and being an entrepreneur in the areas of finance and development.”

Limon has more than a decade of experience in financial and business. He previously served as CEO of New Age Construction Concepts Inc. in Harlingen, and as a mortgage broker at Source One Lending Corp. He has been with UTRGV and legacy institution UTPA since 2014. He earned a Master of Business Administration and a Master of Accounting from UTPA in 2012 and 2014, respectively.   

Limon’s term is for five years ending in 2023. The board consists of nine members, all appointed by the governor.
