Hernandez Shares Philanthropic Goals with The Brownsville Herald
As the CEO of D&M Leasing and Hernco, Inc., Micheal “Mike” Albert Hernandez III has amassed decades of experience in industries including auto leasing, real estate development, energy, and cattle ranching. A native Texan, Mike Hernandez III is dedicated to giving back to his community, and he recently sat down with local publication The Brownsville Herald to share some of his civic efforts.
The piece by staff writer Steve Clark delves into the history of Mr. Hernandez’ significant philanthropic involvement. A native of Brownsville, Texas, who has lived and worked in the Dallas-Fort Worth area since high school, Mr. Hernandez always kept a soft spot for his hometown. When success at the helm of D&M Leasing allowed Mr. Hernandez to focus his efforts on his personal passions, he set out to enrich the community that helped shape his identity.
Speaking with the Herald, Mr. Hernandez described his initial shock at the largely stagnant economic growth in Brownsville and Cameron County. “I personally don’t see a reason for it,” he said, noting that Brownsville’s location “on the border by the sea” makes it a significant economic asset to the county.
