CEOLink Welcomes CEOs to DFW and Spotlights South Side

Posted by    |    February 7th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

Imagine this: you’re a CEO who has recently relocated or expanded your business to DFW, and you don’t know a soul. Okay, maybe one soul, but that’s not enough to get you fully plugged in to the corporate scene. You have to start from the ground up, meet well-connected and established CEOs and businessmen and women who have lived there for years and hope to make some connections. That’s what Matthews Southwest CEO Jack Matthews had to do when he relocated from Canada to Dallas in March of 1994.

Then imagine this:  you’re a CEO who has recently relocated or expanded your business to DFW, and you don’t know a soul. So you join CEOLink, a group of DFW private sector leaders and influencers who welcome you into their network of like-minded people. Their mission: to work collectively with those who helped build it and those who will be a part of its ongoing legacy. Sounds a little easier, right?

Dallas on the Future of the Downtown Tunnels System

Posted by    |    August 24th, 2011 at 3:31 pm


Earlier this year we released our video on the Downtown Dallas Tunnels System, featuring Jack Gosnell’s narration regarding the past and present of the city’s underground heat-escape. Dallasites spend their work hours indoors and opt for the tunnels system as a means to go out for lunch, keeping their sweat glands in tact, leaving restaurant owners above ground to suffer from the lack of warm bodies roaming the streets. This week, Robert Wilonsky and the Dallas Morning News reported on the city’s future plans for the tunnels system and whether or not they will survive once the Downtown Dallas 360 plan is implemented. A decision has not yet been reached and could be a couple years away. For more information regarding the Downtown Tunnels, view the above video.

Last night, the crew at You+Dallas was invited to participate in a drive-along with the Dallas Police Department. Thew team had a rather uneventful night crime-wise but still got some good footage. Trust me, our boys in blue are earning their pay.
