Gibson Arnold & Associates is deeply hurt and angry as a result of an incident that happened in our Houston office. On Monday, June 29th, one of our valued employees and office leader, Kenton Oates, was the victim of a horrific racist rant. A woman, whom we had not worked with before, on a short-term assignment unexpectedly and without cause went verbally ballistic during a group meeting. She had to be escorted out of our office by the building’s security and was immediately terminated.
 
Needless to say, we are incredibly proud to have an individual like Mr. Oates working for Gibson Arnold. His calm demeanor, dignity, strength, courage, restraint and impeccable character during this horrendous emotionally charged situation prevented this incident from escalating further than it did. We are grateful for the outpouring of love and support for Mr. Oates and hope his response will be an example for others to follow.
 
Gibson Arnold is committed to creating a safe environment for our temporary and full-time staff. We also do not tolerate any threats of violence or actual harm to any of the individuals involved in the situation. Unfortunately, as a result of this incident, a current full-time employee, Elaina McMillan and a former employee, Michelle Bresser, have been falsely targeted as that “woman”, threatened and accused of being racists. Neither were involved.
 
As a woman-owned business with a diverse staff, Gibson Arnold serves and promotes racial equality and will never allow the mentally disturbed behavior as witnessed in this incident to exist in our organization.
