Quincy Roberts earned a bachelor’s degree in music, with an emphasis on vocal performance, from Indiana University in 2002. As a solo vocalist, he’s performed with groups including the Dallas Opera and the Cincinnati Symphony. Today, however, he’s singing an entirely different tune. Roberts leads Dallas-based Roberts Trucking Inc., which specializes in transporting construction materials for commercial construction companies.
Arthur Roberts Sr., Quincy’s grandfather, founded the trucking company in 1979. Quincy joined the family business after graduating from college and stepped up his involvement following the death of an uncle in 2004. “Our key to success is being prepared for new opportunities by strategically planning our growth,” he says. —John Egan
