A Word From Our President - A New Chapter For Costello

Mar 17, 2015

Steve Costello, P.E.

It is with a touch of sadness, but mainly excitement for the future, that I pen this Email blast. As many of you know, I am running for Mayor of the City of Houston in the November 2015 election. For this reason, I divested myself of my remaining stock in Costello at the end of 2014 and will be resigning my role as President effective April 1, 2015. I am remaining on the Board of Directors of the company, as ownership is not a requisite for that position and my former partners have asked me to remain.  View Full Post
