Joe B. Kercheville
Chairman and Co-founder
Joe grew up in San Antonio, TX and the Hill Country. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and the Thunderbird Institute for Foreign Trade in Phoenix and has been an investment professional for over forty years. He and his wife, Ann, bought Joshua Creek Ranch in 1986 and opened it for guests in 1990. Joe’s passion for the outdoors has led him on sailing, big game hunting, wing-shooting, and fly-fishing adventures around the world.
President and Co-founder
Ann grew up in Harlingen, TX and graduated from Southern Methodist University in Dallas. After a successful career as a Certified Public Accountant and financial officer for a San Antonio-based New York Stock Exchange company, she launched a second career in ranch management at Joshua Creek Ranch. She shares an appreciation of the outdoors with Joe and their two sons, traveling with them on hunting and fishing trips.
Outdoor Operations Manager
Joseph grew up on the ranch, spending many days working, hunting and fishing. He decided in 2009 to make Joshua Creek Ranch his career after graduating from the Texas Military Institute in San Antonio and University of Texas McCombs Business School in Austin.
As a University of Texas at Austin Business School graduate, and former owner/operator of a successful scuba diving business in the Florida Keys, Brent’s recreational business management and customer service experiences are well suited to the hunting, shooting, and fishing environment at Joshua Creek Ranch. Originally from Dallas, Brent’s love for the outdoors brought him to the Texas Hill Country for its “quality of life,” including the hiking, biking, and kayaking opportunities in the area.
Born in New Orleans, Kay qualifies as one of those “I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as soon as could” types when she moved here at the age of 4. She grew up cooking with her mom, who was also a spectacular cook. At one point she ran her own plant nursery and landscaping company. She has worked at Joshua Creek Ranch as the chef for 6 years. It would be hard to find someone who truly loves the outdoors more than Kay, as you will find her kayaking, camping, and caving on a daily basis.
Executive Assistant, Lodging Facilities Manager
Rebecca was born and raised in Pasadena, TX. She comes from a family of hunters and outdoorsmen, and she moved to the Texas Hill Country in 1988. The majority of her work history has been in Customer Service and Administrative Assistance. She started with Joshua Creek in 1992 but left in 2000 to pursue other interests. She couldn’t stay away long though and has since rejoined the Joshua Creek Ranch team.
