Victoria, TX –  ThriveFuel, a leading Texas-based marketing company, announces the acquisition of Victory Made Media, an award-winning South Texas video production house and producer of popular social media and streaming digital shows such as Meet Victoria with Caleb Shaw, Victoria Events and the Lone Star News Network.

The Victory Made Media staff will join the ThriveFuel team, which will continue to produce these popular local shows. Current sponsors will enjoy their existing level of sponsorship and have access to new products and services as we add features and opportunities to existing shows.

Stephen Gonzales, Founder and President of Victory Made Media, will join ThriveFuel as Production Director.

“I’m excited to focus on what I do best – creating great video content for local shows and clients while letting the experts at ThriveFuel provide the resources needed for expansion of our mission,” said Gonzales about the move.

For decades Gonzales and his Victory Made Media team has been helping clients tell their story through professional, quality video productions, photography, and graphic design.

“Stephen and his team, along with Caleb Shaw, have built local shows and a following that Victoria and the surrounding areas can be proud of,” said Jason Holmes, founder and CEO of ThriveFuel. “We’ve worked with the team at Victory Made Media for years and they are quite simply the best in the business when it comes to video production and marketing. The popular shows are just a small part of the picture.” 

Caleb Shaw, owner of Shaw Realty and host of Meet Victoria and Victoria Events, said he is thrilled to be expanding the Meet Victoria footprint and possibly adding new shows to the roster. “When we started this as a side project it was to meet some of the amazing people in this town and tell their stories,” explained Shaw. “We are so blessed to have grown into multiple shows that highlight our community and its heroes. I’m thankful and excited to be a part of this project and showcasing more of the Crossroads.”
