Born and raised in San Antonio, Richard W. Flowers was both a Sig Ep and a Silver Spur at The University of Texas where he graduated with a degree in Business. He began his career in the East Texas oilfields, later becoming a partner in an independent oil & gas exploration company here in Houston.
While in the oil business, he began a side venture opening eleven European-style flower shops. He soon saw a need for a turn-key event production company and founded his own firm. Richard quickly earned a reputation for producing exceptional events earning the attention of movers, shakers, and decision-makers in Texas and around the United States.
His attention to detail, creativity, and passion have given him the opportunity to produce galas for hundreds of charities in Houston, Ft. Worth, San Antonio, and around the country. His private clientele have taken Richard and his team everywhere from the East Coast to the West Coast and beyond to Mexico, Puerto Rico and Europe.
In 2003, Richard joined forces with the Landry’s organization at the helm of The Events Company. Here he has assembled a strong creative and production team who are armed with extensive creative resources and who share Richard’s passion for producing exceptional events. In 2010, Town & Country Magazine selected him to serve on their Wedding Advisory Board. He has been honored by the Houston Chronicle, naming him the Ultimate Event Planner in Houston.
He has served on numerous boards and currently serves on the Board of Trustees of the Houston Grand Opera and the Board of Directors for the Youth Development Center.
When asked to name his most favorite event, he replies, “There is really not one, instead it is the blessing of meeting so many wonderful clients, many of whom have become great friends.”
