In addition to serving on the Senate Finance and Judiciary Committees, Senator Cornyn serves as the Majority Whip, the second-highest ranking position in the Senate Republican Conference.

Genesis Hosts Tyler Fire Department

Tyler Fire Department

National Fire Prevention Week is October 5-11, 2014. Genesis hosted the guys from Stations 2, 8 and 9 with the Tyler Fire Department. As a small token of our deep appreciation, we treated them to lunch from Bruno’s Pizza. They graciously allowed us to explore two of their engines and answered all of our questions.

Our thanks to the Tyler Fire Department, as well as all of our first responders, the brave men and women who rush headlong into harm’s way for our sake. They are the reason we strive to make our performance management software the very best in the world.

Remember to test your smoke alarms every month – They save lives!

Ribbon Cutting at New State-of-the-Art Facility

Ribbon cutting at the new Genesis Phirst BuildingConstruction has been completed on our energy-efficient (green), state-of-the-art building located on Eagles Nest Blvd. in Tyler, Texas! As this was the vision of the first of many new buildings from Genesis Founder and CEO, Phil Burks, the building has been unofficially dubbed as “The Phirst Building”. We rolled out the red carpet for this technical marvel to our friends, family, partners, customers and community. Among those in attendance were Congressman Louie Gohmert (US House – First District of Texas) and representatives from the offices of Senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn. Numerous other local dignitaries also participated in the ribbon cutting ceremony and open house festivities. This is a day that everyone at the Genesis Group feels a tremendous amount of pride and gratitude for our friends, families, partners, and customers!
