“I believe every day is a blessing and an opportunity to do good to others. I am constantly trying to improve and better myself. I love the life my wife and I have worked so hard to build and believe we are truly blessed.”
Anthony Romero, Regional Account Manager, has many years of experience working in the renewables and environment industry and has already been making such a huge impact here at Soligent. Those who work with Anthony can describe him as hardworking, dependable, and a man of integrity. You can always count on him for assistance, even when it comes to asking for the best food recommendations in the area!
Anthony grew up in a small town in New Mexico called Seboyeta. Growing up, rodeoing and horses were his passion. There wasn’t a day that went by, from the time he was a toddler to the age of 22, that he wasn’t roping something or on horseback. He competed at a high level in the rodeo circuit until he was in his mid-20s. Anthony has been married to his beautiful wife Khara for 11 years. They have 3 children, Jordan (12), Colton (8), and their daughter Avery (6), whom they were blessed to be able to adopt three years ago.
Anthony and his family live in La Vernia TX, a small town outside of San Antonio, TX, where they have a small farm and raise livestock for 4-H and FFA kids in the area. FFA and sports are a big part of their lives, so if they’re not at a soccer game, they’re probably at a livestock show.
