While we readily acknowledge that it’s not nearly as complicated as rocket science, we do think it takes some very special talent to produce BLACK iGUANA Frozen Ritas.

Geniuses in our own right.
Here are our very, very special BLACK iGUANA team members.
Paul Castor, co-founder and Darn Good Idea maker. It all started with Paul – with his quest to crank up the fun at home parties and at the same time free himself from the chains of the infamous margarita blender. Paul is our production genius, overseeing all production, supply and fulfillment processes. As an official Black Iguana representative, Paul also plays the very important role of Goodwill Ambassador of Fun … dispensing free Black Iguana samples. Everyone in his neighborhood loves Paul.
Earl Castor, also co-founder and Darn Good Idea facilitator. Earl has the vision – it’s all about making the world a better place. AS CEO, Earl is our business strategist genius and fearless leader, directing all important matters of product market positioning. Currently, he is obsessed with Global Positioning System navigation gadgets – it’s that vision thing.
Chris Kirksey, formula master-mind. Chris is as near a genius as you can get! We need to get him on some TV game show. Chris is our flavor formula genius that makes our Frozen Ritas taste out of this world. He is an avid skier, has been a bartender, has an IT background – so of course he’s got the mojo to create the perfect taste formula for our Black Iguana Frozen Ritas!
Curtis Fox, show-me-the-money closer. Curtis is our sales genius. He knows no strangers! He is Dynamic, Charismatic, Energetic, LOVES PEOPLE!!! He is our powerhouse sales slugger – who by the way, played some mean baseball at the college level. Curtis is a master of taste samplings/demos, promo spots, and community-based public relations. Curtis is the quintessential all-around popular guy who LOVES PEOPLE!!!
William Tschina, events and promos wiz. Always at the center of any BLACK iGUANA event, Will makes sure everything’s set up for our fans. He’s our very own “On The Road Again” icon–always ready to dispense BLACK iGUANA party fun and mingle with our fans. Wanna iGUANA? Will’s your guy–he’s got you covered!
Marcus Latham, product design and packaging dude. Also super surf dude with somewhat of a dual personality – the hammer and the artist. Marcus skillfully negotiates and mercilessly drives hard deals with any and all vendors, but especially product packaging vendors; thus, the hammer. He is also our creative genius behind our product marketing collateral; thus, the artist. And by the way, he also has an unmatched skill for building parade-quality pirate ship floats!
Gloria Hernandez, Social Media connection. Her mantra is Friends, Fans, Followers—send me your ‘Likes’ and photos! Her genius is in capturing and photo editing those memorable BLACK iGUANA moments. She can make a sunset in West Texas look iGUANAmously spectacular!
Solomon Olatoye, business operations go-to guy. Solomon is all about getting things done. His personal mantra is “We can do it!” Most importantly, Solomon is truly a genius; he has a PhD in engineering. Without Solomon, Keystone Cops chaos would quickly set in. Solomon is also quite a powerhouse in a racketball court. (Got game?)
John Mitchell, fine-print legal eagle. John’s world is not for everyone. Lawyering is a very special calling. Our legal & regulations genius handles all the icky, sticky, eyes-glazed-over legal matters and compliance with mind boggling government regulations. Off work, he is a nature-loving guy who loves to go out-door camping; he also plays tennis, so he is quite normal and fun to hang around with.
Leila Doucet, finance wizard. In Leila’s perfect yellow-brick world, it’s sheer ecstasy beyond imagination when the numbers all add up correctly. Our finance wizard reigns over inventory, receivables, payables, statements – and occasionally over lions, tigers and bears, oh my! Outside of this Land of BLACK iGUANA, Leila has established for herself an enviable reputation as the Queen of Gumbo – her awesome gumbo is to die for.
