As casual in appearance as he is in manner, Fred Baron props his legs on the coffee table of his spacious corner office on the 16th floor of a North Dallas high rise.

Exuding his trademark optimism, he draws you into his confidence, telling you exactly what he wants you to know, while making you feel it’s exactly what you want to hear.
