Reginald Beaudoin
Reginald BeaudoinCEO & Founder

Reginald Beaudoin, visionary for Already Gear, was born in Amarillo and raised in the Oakcliff area of south Dallas. Educated in Dallas ISD, Beaudoin attended Kimball High School and matriculated on to El Centro College majoring in Psychology. He began his 20-year career in the banking industry as an associate at Bright Bank. Bum Bright, also owner of the Dallas Cowboys, was influential in Beaudoin’s vision of entrepreneurship.

Beaudoin ended his banking career facilitating Nations Bank move to the state of Texas. VRB Marketing was the next stop on Beaudoin’s career path. There he worked for 9 years as a sales representative, discovering his enjoyment in the promotional marketing industry and the inner workings of a marketing company. Before long the idea of owning a marketing company was conceived.

By 2001 Already Gear was birthed as a home-based business. Steady growth took place as large customers were won. One notable contract was a 3-year price agreement with Dallas ISD. In early 2005, He approached Teresa Blake (an engineer turned actress transplant from Los Angeles) to partner with him to expand the companies’ base and provide executive management. In 5 years Already Gear’s gross sales rose from less than $100,000 annually to breaking the $1,000,000 mark in 2011.

Teresa Beaudoin is the other half of Already Gear. This Shreveport, LA native has had a varied and very successful journey to entrepreneurship. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Southern University and was quickly hired by AT&T Network Systems in Chicago.
A serious family illness changed her course and destiny moved her to Dallas where she met Reginald.
 
In early 2005, Reginald approached Teresa to partner with him to expand the companies’ base and provide executive management. In less than 1 year as partners, this dynamic duo restructured Already Gear by incorporation, added 5 additional full time contractors and expanded to a fully staffed office in the Oakcliff area. Now, Reginald and Teresa Beaudoin set the stage at home and in the promotional product industry to make history as a Fortune 500 couple and business. Grossing nearly 2 million dollars last year they are on their way!
