Fred Olin Hargis Jr., Fixed Assets Accountant at Nabors Corporate Services, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in music and accounting.
Born with a talent for music, Mr. Hargis recalls he would play church hymns by ear on the piano from the age of four and listened to multiple genres of music throughout his teenage years. Later, he worked as a freelance woodwind musician in Houston, Texas, during which time he studied commercial and classical music performance at the University of Houston and was a student of Byron Hester, a principal flutist with the Houston Symphony Orchestra for 40 years and professor emeritus of the University of Houston’s School of Music. Mr. Hargis later also studied jazz studies in music performance at the University of North Texas.
In his professional endeavors, Mr. Hargis served the Buddy Brook Orchestra Inc. as a band manager from 1980 to 1990 and president, chief executive officer and leader from 1990 to 1997, having also taught as a professor of clarinet and saxophone at the University of St. Thomas in Houston from 1992 to 1997. Outside of his musical feats, Mr. Hargis was a scheduling manager for JMC Holmes from 1998 to 2004 and a contract employee with Robert Half Finance & Accounting from 2005 to 2007. Most recently, he served as president and chief executive officer of Fred Hargis, Inc. from 1990 to 2015 and as a fixed asset accountant with Nabors Industries for one decade until 2018.
Over the years, Mr. Hargis has been a member and vice president of the University of Houston’s first chapter of the National Association of Jazz Educators, as well as a board member of Post Wood Municipal Utility District. Recently, he has cultivated his passion for genealogical research for both his extended family and friends and is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists. Upon reflection, he considers his greatest accomplishment to be performing at President George H.W. Bush’s inaugural ball and the Republican National Convention of 1992, having also played in the World Premier of JEKYLL & HYDE at the Alley Theater in Houston, Texas starring Chuck Wagner and Linda Eder in 1990.
