"Responsibility is working to provide food, shelter, clothing for your family..."

Manny Menard



  • Founder and CEO of Menard Industries, a products and services company focused on the Railroad Industry.
  • Co-Founder of Menard’s Railroad Materials
  • MBA, Acton; BBA, Stephen F. Austin State University

Manny completed the Acton MBA course in 2005 and immediately put his entrepreneur education to work. He joined Axalto where he founded the North American Transportation business unit.

By 2008, Manny founded Menard Industries. Manny chose to bootstrap the business rather than finance growth. “Yes I chose to grow slower, but it fits my personality. The desire to bootstrap the business led to constraints which forced creativity.”

Manny enjoys creating businesses and thereby creating jobs. “Responsibility is working to provide food, shelter, clothing for your family. When you’re a responsible entrepreneur you provide the vehicle by which employees, customers and vendors provide for their families. By teaching, I can help create entrepreneurs prepared to take on this responsibility.”
