A respected Brownsville, Texas, philanthropist, Micheal Albert Hernandez III builds on decades of success in the consumer auto leasing business as the CEO of D&M Leasing. Born in Cameron County, he attended Saint Joseph Academy before relocating to Dallas with his family to complete high school. Micheal Albert (“Mike”) Hernandez III joined D&M Leasing in 1984 and took over partial ownership in 1990 and full ownership in 2005.

Prior to semi-retiring in 2011, Mike Hernandez III had expanded his business activities into the real estate development, finance, cattle ranching, and oil and gas spheres. In early 2016, he announced the launch of OP 10.33, a nonprofit that will invest significantly in social services spanning the Brownsville area with the aim of improving the opportunities available to local residents.

Areas that Mike Hernandez III emphasizes include job skills and creation, as well as alternative health care services. As a political action committee, OP 10.33 also supports local candidates for office, based on experience and pedigree as agents of change. Mr. Hernandez hopes to shape the regional government into one that coordinates overarching programs that benefit all Cameron County citizens.
