Rami Touma– CECA Supply
I immigrated to The Woodlands, Texas from Damascus Syria at a toddler in 1979 with my mother and father where I later completed high school up. I then began my university studies at The University of St. Thomas but transitioned to the University of Houston where I received a degree in International Marketing from the business school. In 2002, I moved to Dubai where I worked for Conestoga Supply, a Texas based pipe company. About the same time Maher Touma, my uncle, was in the process of starting CECA Supply and asked me to consider a relocation opportunity with the new company in Houston, Texas. I made my decision and joined CECA Supply in 2003 where I have been ever since. Currently I hold the position of President, and I consider myself fortunate to have held many roles in CECA where I have been either responsible for or deeply involved in various functions: shipping, quoting, client relations, collections & finance, project sales negotiations, and business development.
During the last 15 years, my many roles at CECA have taken me all over the world visiting every continent with the exception of Antarctica. I am fortunate to have lived the “Nomads Lifestyle” most of my career. Currently my travels take me to the African region five to six times a year for regular follow-ups business meetings and company presentations.
I have been married to my wife Kristen Touma for 10 years and we have two children, a daughter Kylie and a son Taylor. We live in the Westchase district of Houston.
I would be honored and proud to serve as Sgt. at Arms for NOMADS.
