Gene Strother assumes role as Vice President of Communications and Resource Management

Gene Strother has been a long time associate of owners Zack Meadows and Stacy Story dating back to the days when they were running the roads as claims adjusters. He was there in the beginning when Meadows and Story assumed ownership of Mid-America, working alongside them to establish their business model and brand the company. Gene left the industry for three years to lead the Tricon American Homes construction and maintenance teams for Texas. 

Zack and Stacy compelled Gene to return to the Mid-America team when Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas coast in 2017. Gene took the reins, managing Harvey to its conclusion and then assisting with the management of Hurricane Irma in Florida.

After the hurricanes, Gene assumed the management of two key accounts and also took on the role of managing company communications. In 2018, he managed both Hurricane Florence and Michael.

Gene brings 35 years of leadership, management, and communications experience to his new role.

Trey will continue his work in adjuster services and resource management. Trey has been – and remains – a vital member of the MACS leadership team. Trey has also been with Zack and Stacy from the beginning and beyond, having worked claims alongside them on numerous storms prior to Mid-America.
