From the Governor’s office:
Governor Greg Abbott has appointed Paul Braden and Leo Vasquez to the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA) for terms set to expire on January 31, 2023.
Leo Vasquez of Houston is executive vice president of Cadeco Industries and related companies. He is a gubernatorial appointee to the Texas Board of Criminal Justice and former gubernatorial appointee and chairman of the Texas Commission of Licensing and Regulation. He is a member of the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition’s Texas Advisory Board (USGLC) and the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD). Additionally, he is a former board member of Houston’s Greater East End Management District, the Harris County Appraisal District, Harris County Health Facilities Development Corporation and served as the Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector and Voter Registrar. Vasquez received a Bachelor of Arts from Yale University and a Master of Business Administration from Columbia University Graduate School of Business.
That’s an impressive bio but it doesn’t really represent Leo. The easiest way to explain it is how we would say it in Pasadena – he’s just an all around good guy. Gov. Abbott joins former Gov. Rick Perry in recognizing Leo’s talent and putting him to work for Texas. For free!
Next time you see Leo, slap him on the back and tell him thanks for his community service and continued efforts to improve Texas.
