HOUSTON- Kenneth Guidry, CPA, President of Pannell Kerr Forster of Texas, P.C. (PKF Texas) was among the panelists at the Greater Houston Partnership's Thought Leader Series event. The topic, the Middle Market - Breaking Out: Strategies for Game Changing Performance, is of ongoing interest in the Houston business community.

Moderated by Molly Ryan, reporter for the Houston Business Journal, Kenneth and his fellow panelists, Jeff Applegate, CEO, Texas Injection Molding and Steve Mechler, President, Balfour Beatty Construction, shared their insights about Houston's middle market including challenges and opportunities.

They echoed the statistics presented by keynote speaker, Dr. Anil Makhija, Academic Director of the National Center for the Middle Market, Ohio State University. The middle market in Texas includes nearly 10,000 businesses with more than $496 Billion in annual revenue, employing 29 percent of the Texas workforce.

The panelists noted Houston's role in driving growth in this sector and how the city has thrived following recent economic instability.
