Featured Speaker Glenn  Hegar

Glenn Hegar Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts

Glenn Hegar is Texas' chief financial officer—the state's treasurer, check writer, tax collector, procurement officer, and revenue estimator. It is a particularly important job as the state continues its strong recovery from the dual impacts of the COVID pandemic and energy market volatility. He spent much of the last year helping guide lawmakers as they worked through regular and special sessions to address the issues facing our state, including pension reform and the management of federal relief dollars. His recently completed broadband development listening tour and Texas Broadband Plan released in June support his efforts to bridge the digital divide in Texas and highlight his support for continued infrastructure investment throughout our state. As the CFO of the world's 9th largest economy, Hegar is charged with maintaining the state's fiscal health. Having served in both the Texas House and Senate, Hegar has gained a reputation for customer service, transparency in government, and conservative fiscal management. He has a distinguished record of working to address Texas’ water needs and continues to support water and water-related infrastructure investment in every corner of the Lone Star State. Hegar is a 1993 graduate of Texas A&M University and a graduate of St. Mary's University, where he earned a master of arts and law degree. At the University of Arkansas, he earned his master of laws. Hegar is a sixth-generation Texan who grew up farming land that has been in his family since the mid-1800s. When not in Austin or traveling the state, Glenn lives in Katy with his wife, Dara, and his teenage children, Claire, Julia, and Jonah.
