Client Spotlight: Comet Signs, LLC

Comet Signs, LLC

Comet Signs, LLC

Nearly 60 years ago, Arthur S. Sitterle founded Comet Neon Advertising Company in San Antonio and later merged the company with Reynolds Signs to form Comet Signs, LLC in 2013. Today, Arthur S. “Pete” Sitterle, III, oversees operations alongside Tommy Reynolds and Mikal Harn. With expansion to Austin, Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth and Tyler markets, the company specializes in sign design, engineering, manufacturing, maintenance, and installation. A UTSA SBDC client since 2013, its portfolio includes the Fort Worth Texas Motor Speedway, H-E-B, and Valero. Senior Business Advisor Crystal Darby provided advising on social media management, targeted market development, and content development. The SBDC PTAC also provided direction on government contracting and human resources. The company’s expansion has created new jobs and retained existing jobs.

“Crystal Darby has and continues to provide invaluable guidance through her wisdom and expertise, helping Comet Signs continue our business growth.  I feel that for any business, an “outside” voice is important to ensure we stay on track and maintain focus on our goals.”
