Sales and Project Management

Cecil Lindsey

Sales, Estimating and Project Management 

Cecil Lindsey’s 20 year tenure with Vector Concepts has led him to the position of Senior Project Manager. He was lured away from the music distribution business where he performed in management, forklift training, warehouse design, and as part of the safety team. At Vector, his job requires expertise in sales, estimating, project management and design assistance from beginning to end, offering stellar service with the goal of 100% customer satisfaction. His code is “There are no problems, only opportunities.”

A talented musician, Cecil plays guitar and sings backup for his Christian band, Seven Days from Sunday. They play frequently at area churches and community events. He and his wife, Kathi, have two lovely daughters, Megan and Morgan. He loves to spend time with his family and stays active by exercising regularly. He is involved with Vector’s favorite charity “Family Legacy,” which provides care for orphaned children in Zambia.

The practical jokester side of Cecil is well known around the office. He says “I like to make a good time out of any situation. Why should it just be a job when your co-workers are like your family?” So, at any given time, Cecil will show his affection by scaring the daylights out of them by blowing an air horn behind their heads when they least expect it, quite often capturing the hilarious results on video.

Bud Dotson

Sales, Estimating and Project Management

Having been around the flooring business since the day he was born, a career in that industry was predestined for Bud Dotson. He is now a Senior Project Manager and his position requires him to estimate, make sales calls, manage projects and negotiate contracts. Because of his long-time experience in flooring, he is often called upon to offer advice and lend his expertise to solve a problem.

From Kaufman, TX, Bud has two sons, Jaxon and Tuff, and a fiancée, Kim. When he’s not racing to keep up the busy pace that his job requires, Bud squeezes in a good round of golf whenever he can. He especially loves spending time with his children.

Jason Sultana

Sales, Estimating and Project Management 

When Jason isn’t assisting his co-workers with software programs or anything tech-related, he wears the multiple hats of Sales, Project Management and Estimating. In addition to handling his own clients, Jason works with the Sports Team, estimating and managing their projects.

Originally from Farmers Branch, Jason attended Wyoming Technical to learn auto body, custom paint, and upholstery. After working at a Chevrolet dealership in the auto body repair shop, he painted heavy equipment and big rigs. He spent some time in metal building construction then eventually landed at a Dallas flooring company in the finance department as an auditor. This brought him to a position at Starnet, which finally led to the doors of Vector Concepts.

Jason and his wife Kate have 3 children, Signe, Nathan and Lucy. To relax, he plays with his kids, watches football, building just about anything and enjoys long walks on the beach. Jason also admits to watching Disney movies while singing along. Though he has been compared to Steve Urkel by most of his coworkers, he claims to have no sense of humor whatsoever. Jason has been known to keep a stick in his office in case Cecil tries to scare him with his air horn.

Her education included attending Iowa Central Community College in her home town of Eagle Grove Iowa.  Upon graduation, Stacey moved to Texas.  After Jason and Stacey married, while being a ‘stay home’ mom, she would also work part-time for Jason’s company.

Stacey looks forward to the future and working with such a phenomenal work family.

Stacey and Jason have two children, Lexi and Lauren. Because their kids are very active in their respective schools, Stacey has her hands full attending their many events, from volleyball games to sorority functions. She owns a school supply company that delivers packets to 17 HEB area schools every August and she also operates a low-cost “Reindeer Store” during the holidays so that school kids can purchase low cost gifts for friends and family. As busy as she is, spending quality time with her family is Stacey’s first priority. Describing herself as an “open book”, Stacey loves to have a good time and simply enjoys making other people happy.
