Ric Campo Shares Insight at East End Chamber of Commerce "Vision 2015" Luncheon

Over 100 industry leaders, business owners and partners of Houston’s East End gathered today at the Marriott South at Hobby Airport for the East End Chamber of Commerce Vision 2015 luncheon to receive a presentation from Ric Campo.

Campo is a man who wears many hats. As Chairman and CEO of Camden Property Trust, one of the nation’s largest multi-family real estate investment trusts, Mr. Campo has grown the Houston-based firm into a national industry leader.

Ric Campo is deeply committed to the city of Houston and is actively engaged with several community organizations including Houston First and Central Houston. In addition to these incredible responsibilities, he has somehow found time to chair the Houston Super Bowl Host Committee.

Thanks to the efforts of the Houston Super Bowl Host Committee, Houston will play host to Super Bowl LI in 2017. Securing Houston as the host for Super Bowl LI is no small task, including fundraising at least $50 million from investors and working with local community groups to ensure the stage is set to showcase our city as the most diverse in the country.
