Joe Karpati
Director of Marketing

When Joe is not cooking, volunteering at his church, being a family man or waiting for that winning season in Longhorn Football, he loves to geek out with fellow marketers on the latest and greatest marketing hacks.

From the depths of the Eyes of Texas Joe emerged with a burnt orange passion for creative communication and marketing. Armed with his shining personality and 20 years in marketing, Joe joined HCI in 2018 to support the “heavy hitting” sales team in bringing the best communication solutions to the industry.

HCI is a natural fit for me. An organization with a superb Executive Management team an aggressive vision of the future, a sales team in a league all its own, and a corky family-oriented personality. Hard not to want to be part of that!

Jason LaBrose
Vice President of Sales

When it involves a two-way radio, Jason LaBrose has probably dealt with it, seen it, or handled it in one way or another. He joined the HCI team back in 1998 eager to learn about this new product line he was about to take on. Coming from a background of retail sales this was a new venture he was ready to take on. Here we are years later and HCI still can’t get rid of him.

Jason has proven himself time and time again as being one of the top dealer sales representatives for Motorola Solutions over the past years earning his way in to the Motorola Heavy Hitter Club for the past 5 years consecutively. As of 2016 Jason was promoted to Sales Manager and recently to VP of Sales and has thrived in the position.

Away from HCI, Jason is running a fast-paced schedule with his 3 kids and wife. The kids sport and schooling keep him more than busy while away from HCI but he loves every minute.

“The atmosphere at HCI has not changed over the years which has kept me enjoying the job. We try to project our family feel over to our clients which I think makes HCI stand out in the herd.”

Trevor Henson
Service Manager

Trevor Henson is a 10-year two-way radio solution veteran and has project managed several Wireless Solution products in a wide array of service transactions. Trevor has built a solid foundation of HCI clients through his expertise and advisory services.

Mr. Henson epitomizes integrity, energy, hard work, and creative services in every detail of his service operations. Trevor grew up in the Houston area and started his services habit at the age of ten, volunteering at HCI and helping others with anything involving technology. He has worked every aspect of the industry representing buyers, sellers, technicians, project managers, and HCI, in markets such as commercial, transportation, construction, education, chemical, and energy.

Trevor is devoted to his beautiful wife and pets (no children at the moment). An athlete and competitor by nature, he challenges himself to learn and participate in all sports. Basketball is a year-round passion. Roll Tide!!! In times of freedom, he is collecting comic books and a Star Wars fanatic. In the end, five words you can count on from Trevor Henson love, integrity, commitment, passion, and fun.

Adam B. Williams
Executive Vice President

With 29 years of experience as a National Sales Executive, General Manager, and now Executive Vice President, Adam is no stranger to leadership. His formula is simple, establishing the right team, visions, and goals for the entire organization. This approach has sanctioned exponential growth for the HCI organization. Adam’s no-nonsense and logical methods has gained him respect within the industry and the that of the HCI organization. It unfortunate that those methods don’t hold true for his baseball affiliations.

Daniel Ruiz
Shop Manager

Daniel is no stranger to the industry with over 20 years in radio repair. He has been an asset to the HCI team with is unparalleled knowledge of two-way radios, and customer care expectations.
