Bill Vincent – Founder/President

Bill Vincent has more than 30 years of experience in the tire recycling business. He has processed millions of tires over the course of his career into environmentally safe products. Bill has successfully owned and managed a number of tire recycling businesses and survived through the early evolutions of an industry that killed off many seasoned businessmen.

In 2007 Bill started Tioga Contractors, LLC in Tioga, TX to build stock tanks, clear land and construct building pads in the area. In 2008 Bill asked his son-in-law, Jerry Carter, to take over Tioga Contractors. With Jerry's expertise and experience they added plumbing and wet utilities to the other services offered by Tioga Contractors. In 2011, Jerry added electrical service to better serve the customer base. Bill is always looking for better ways to serve his customers.

Bill was raised in Richland Hills and served as its Mayor from May 1988 to May 1990. Bill served on many state and national committees, including Chairman of the Keep Texas Beautiful campaign. Bill was also appointed by Texas Governor Clements to serve on the "Waste Management Policy in Texas" board. Bill has been married to his high school sweetheart Pat since 1959 and they have four children, several grandchildren and more great grandchildren than they can count!
