The Garvey family business traces its origins to agriculture in the early part of the 20th century in Kansas. R.H. Garvey built an integrated grain and ranching agribusiness across the Great Plains. James Garvey, one of the founder’s four children, moved to Fort Worth in 1959 to manage and build a portion of the family’s business which included grain elevators, ranching, insurance, real estate and oil and gas exploration and production.
In the 1980s, changes in the grain business led to a reorganization of the Company’s assets and focus. As grain elevator operations wound down, additional investments were made in real estate and marketable securities and in the Company’s petroleum distribution and convenience store operation in Kansas and Colorado. JaGee Corporation — now JaGee Holdings, LLP — was organized to manage these diverse operations.
Currently, Richard F. Garvey and Carol Garvey Sweat — James’ children and the third generation Garvey’s to operate this business — are continuing the family’s entrepreneurial legacy.
JaGee has earned a solid reputation for exceptional quality and service in the properties and business it offers to the marketplace.
