Lydia Nixon, President of Texas Norvell Fire & Security, Inc.
Lydia jumped into this industry in 1989, not knowing a single thing. But as years passed by, she learned more and more. From Bidding to Installing. She has earned a reputation of a NO NONSENSE Individual in this industry. With incredible ethics and habit of going way beyond the means to make the Contractor/Builder feel at ease. Over the years she has consulted Owners and Developers making sure all their needs were met. And as a Developer once said…."I WANT THE WOW Factor"…making sure that was exactly what they received.
Working hand in hand with her employees out in the field has earned her the respect that she will NOT sit behind a desk and run a company from there. That she too knows and understands the meaning of hard work. She has taken pride in the knowledge of knowing this industry from one end to the other. Working in a Man’s industry was a rough beginning, but earning their respect was all worth the ups and downs.
