Leadership in the Private & Public Sector
Born into a family of leaders, George Prescott Bush will tell us what his background as a corporate lawyer, Navy Reserve Officer, real estate investor, teacher, and now politician has taught him about what it means to be a leader across sectors.
About Our Speaker:
George Prescott Bush is a native Texan, born in Houston on April 24, 1976. He was first elected Texas Land Commissioner on Nov. 4, 2014 and was overwhelmingly re-elected on November 6, 2018. He received the second highest vote total of any candidate running statewide.
As the 28 the Texas Land Commissioner, Bush works to safeguard our Texas coastline as well as ensure Texas veterans receive the benefits they’ve earned. He hosted 100 roundtables, forums and events in 2016 to highlight issues within the Texas veteran community. Since September of 2017, Commissioner Bush and the General Land Office (GLO) have led the state’s housing-related recovery efforts following Hurricane Harvey, helping more than 60,000 victims of Hurricane Harvey rebuild their homes and their lives. In addition, he protected private property rights by joining a lawsuit along with Red River ranchers and farmers against the Obama BLM- which was successfully settled in November of 2017. He also oversees
investments that earn billions of dollars for public education while managing state lands to produce the oil and gas that is helping make America energy-independent. Commissioner Bush is also working to save the Alamo and preserve the Shrine of Texas Liberty for generations to come.
Commissioner Bush has dedicated his life to public service — working as a public-school teacher after graduating from Rice University, serving in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan as an officer in the U.S. Naval Reserve, and now as the 28th Land Commissioner of the Texas General Land Office, the only state agency that makes more money than it spends.
