Marvin Bein was born and raised in Corpus Christi, TX. After high school he enlisted in the Army Reserves prior to moving to Houston for enrollment at the University of Houston.
While attending college in Houston, he worked part time for 3 years for a commercial flooring company. He additionally spent his summers studying language at the Universidad De Las Americas in Cuernavaca, Mexico. He started his own floor covering business at the age of 22. He was self-employed in that business – which morphed into commercial construction – for his entire career, selling the company 40 years later, at the age of 62.
Marvin specialized in concrete slab reinforcement and site construction, and was involved in the building of churches, schools, medical clinics, warehouses, and other public and commercial buildings, mostly within a 100-mile radius of Houston, over a period of 4 decades.
Although retired, Marvin continues to work as an M&A consultant in the aircraft services industry. He is a pilot of 45 years, and he also volunteers for the Shriner's Hospitals for Children, flying out to do preliminary needs-assessments of families. Marvin loves to fly, fish and play music.
