MEET YOUR AMBASSADOR

Johnny Rodriguez loves what he does.

“I think I have the greatest job in the world representing Bert Ogden alongside my Dynamic Duo partner, Augie Lozano. I love being an extension of Janet and Bob Vackar. I feel humble they entrust me with representing Bert Ogden and the 17 dealerships.” Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez found his way into public relations along a circuitous route.

“I was in the staffing agency business for over 25 years,” Rodriguez said. “I think I was involved with every single chamber in the Valley from Brownsville to McAllen. Being part of the McAllen Ambassador program is one of the biggest tools any organization can have. We meet many individuals who become life-long friends!”

Raising Simbrah Cattle on their KJ Cattle Company ranch is a source of pride and joy for him and son John Paul, with many grand champions among their home grown bulls. Add fishing and golfing and you almost have the whole picture.

Only one other thing he could never do without . . . his family, wife of 25 years, Melissa, daughter Kimberly Ann, and son John Paul.
