I shot an email to MCrowd czar Ray Washburne to ask about the water pipe that burst on Saturday under their Irving warehouse. I saw the story on Channel 8 and the place looked trashed. Washburne said they are rebuilding in the same spot.
While I had his attention, I asked if Greg Good was still the CEO. “Greg Good is leaving MCrowd,” said Washburne. “Greg will stay on the board but is pursuing other opportunities outside of MCrowd.”
But here’s the real poop: Good will be replaced by Michael Cox. Besides playing a huge role in getting Central Market up and running in Dallas, Cox was an on-and-off partner with Stephan Pyles since the old Routh Street Cafe days. Last time I spoke with Cox he was living in Milwaukee and working for Marcus Hotels and Resorts.
Welcome back, Michael. Good to have you in Dallas. (Couldn’t resist.)
Update: I just spoke with Cox. He and his wife are driving from Milwaukee and plan to arrive on Saturday. He starts his new position next Monday.
