What They're Saying: Ray Reid

"I'm biased. But Osorio’s the perfect guy. He’s been in this country since ’85, speaks fluent Spanish, which is a thing they want. He’s meticulous. He’d be a perfect choice because you’re not only strengthening us, you’re weakening Mexico. And Juan is a smart guy. He knows, as big as this Mexico job is, the American job, for his brand, if he can get it going the right way, what it could do.”
