TXU Energy CEO Jim Burke delivers a tribute to Anita Brian, who celebrated 50 years of service with the company this week.

Fifty years ago this week, a young Anita Brian came to work as a typist for Lone Star Gas, one of the many companies that have been a part of the modern day TXU Energy. Anita’s colleagues recently celebrated her five decades of dedication and the business’ first ever semicentennial work anniversary milestone.

TXU Energy Chief Executive Officer Jim Burke noted Anita’s job titles have grown with her tenure, from typist and stenographer in the early 1960s to administrative secretary to the chairman, president and CEO today.

Anita Brian joined Lone Star Gas, a predecessor to TXU Energy, in 1964.

“She was one of the first people to try out the electric typewriter to see if that technology would actually stick around, which is amazing,” Burke said. “When you think about the 50 years, we’re not talking about folks that have figured out how to just get by and survive. We’re talking about people who are real role models. You think about dedication, you think about a professional attitude. Anita never has a bad day.”

The landmark anniversary testifies to Anita’s tremendous work ethic, loyalty and investment in relationships – qualities that TXU Energy leadership have valued since our earliest days in the 19th century. With that long legacy of serving Texans, we know that when we invest in our people, our people invest in good work, and the customers they serve benefit.

Congratulations, Anita, and thank you for your service!
