We are pleased to announce Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, Senior Counsel at Bracewell & Giuliani LLP, as the speaker at our September Private Equity Breakfast.
Kay Bailey Hutchison is a regarded business woman and public servant with more than 40 years of experience in the public and private sectors. She represents clients in banking, energy, transportation, telecommunications, and public policy.
Senator Hutchison spent more than two decades as a public servant. In January 2013, she stepped down from her seat in the United States Senate. As a U.S. Senator, she served in the Senate leadership, having first been elected Vice-Chairman of the Republican Conference and later elected Chairman of the Republican Policy Committee, the fourth-highest ranking Republican Senator.
Senator Hutchison served as the Ranking Member on the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation and the Appropriations Subcommittee for Commerce, Justice, and Science. She was also the Chairman of the Military Construction Appropriations Sub-Committee and served on the Defense Appropriations Sub-Committee. In addition, the Senator served as Chairman of the Board of Visitors at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
Prior to her Senate service, Senator Hutchison was elected Texas State Treasurer in 1990 and to the Texas House of Representatives in 1972. She was the first Republican woman elected to that body. She served in the Texas House until 1976 when she was appointed by President Gerald Ford to serve as vice-chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board.
Her business experience includes acting as Senior Vice President and General Counsel of Republic Bank Corporation in Texas, co-founder of Fidelity National Bank of Dallas, and owning a candy manufacturing company.
We look forward to the continued success of our Private Equity Breakfast and hope to see you on September 10th.
