To officially congratulate Bill Winsor and Cindy Morris on their new positions within the Dallas Market Center — Morris will take over Winsor’s previous long-time role as President and CEO and Winsor will begin a new role as Chairman Emeritus — lighting and home décor members turned out for an elegant cocktail party hosted at the Old Parkland campus, which is the headquarters for Crow Family Holdings.

Beginning on July 1, Dallas Market Center (DMC) veterans Bill Winsor and Cindy Morris will assume their newly appointed positions, so it was fitting that industry members gathered together for a gala event on the grounds of the historic former Parkland Hospital, which has been recently renovated and expanded as Class A office space that is home to include Crow Family Holdings (owner/operator of the DMC) and other tenants such as TRT Holdings, which owns Omni Hotels & Resorts and Gold’s Gym International among other properties.

For the past 13 years, Morris has served as Chief Operating Officer (COO) at the DMC; Winsor has worked for the Crow family for 35 years, most recently as President and CEO of the DMC.
