India-West Staff Reporter
DALLAS, TX – Texas Governor Greg Abbott has named Indian American Arun Agarwal, the CEO of a Dallas-based home textile company, to the Texas Economic Development Corporation’s Board of Directors. He was tapped along with eight other Texas executives, to market the state nationally and globally to relocate a business and create new jobs.
“This is a tremendous honor for the Indian-American diaspora in the United States,” said Agarwal, who also serves as the chair of the India American CEO Council and president of the Dallas Parks and Recreation Board. “The Governor realizes the tremendous power our community holds in this country as the hardest-working, highest-earning ethnic minority, and, together, we hope to make Texas the most successful hub for small and large business owners in the world.”
