Introducing Our New President, John Beckworth

As of this month, I am so pleased and excited to have John Beckworth as the 87th Texas Exes board president.

John jumped in feet first last week with a staff luncheon and past presidents’ dinner. The dinner was a great opportunity for John to get sage advice from previous Texas Exes board presidents.

John outlined his goals for the year, including growing the Forty Acres Scholars Program. He also plans to better define and utilize the various committees within the Texas Exes, as well as to strengthen our relationships not only across campus but also with the Board of Regents.

John, BA ’80, JD ’83, Life Member, is a double UT grad who has been practicing law since 1983. In 1994, he started his own firm. Five years after launching his practice, he won the Outstanding Young Texas Exes Award.

Today, he concentrates his practice in international and domestic arbitration and commercial litigation, including energy and employment law.

John and his wife, Laura, JD ’83, Life Member, live in Houston. They have three sons: William, Carter, and John.

We look forward to an exciting year with John at the helm.
