Greg Grissom

President, Houston Texans

Greg Grissom became President of the Houston Texans in March 2021. He oversees the management and direction of business operations, including marketing and communications, digital and social media, community relations, ticket sales and membership services, event management and operations, business analytics, IT and corporate partnerships. In addition, he also oversees Lone Star Sports & Entertainment (LSSE), a leading event management company focused primarily on college football and international soccer events.

As a key member of the organization since its inaugural season, Grissom previously held the position of senior vice president of corporate development. He served the team in numerous leadership capacities since 2002 and led several business expansion efforts as well as key external relationships. Since 2012, the franchise witnessed landmark growth, creating a wealth of new opportunities for sponsors and fans. The launch of Houston Texans Luxe in 2017, thanks in significant part to Grissom’s efforts, vaulted the organization into a top leader in value creation for suite holders among NFL franchises.

The team’s business operations continue to fearlessly evolve under Grissom’s leadership. Throughout his tenure as president, the organization has worked to build an even deeper connection to the fanbase and progress from a business perspective. Leaning into the culture and diversity of Houston is at the forefront of the team’s work to evolve the Texans’ brand identity. Through regular focus groups and the launch of the inaugural Fan Council, the Texans are engaging their fans who are helping shape the organization’s decisions moving forward. In 2022, the Texans redefined what it means to be a Season Ticket Member by providing new savings, more flexibility and better benefits to express the organization’s gratitude for their loyalty. They also implemented an innovative and robust sales strategy for its partnerships and introduced Fan First Deals, slashing prices on four of the most-ordered concessions items on gameday. Reimagining the Texans’ annual Draft Party under Grissom’s leadership also yielded a great response from fans as more than 7,000 people packed Miller Outdoor Theatre to share in the excitement of the 2023 NFL Draft.

Grissom holds more than two decades of experience in sports sponsorship sales, planning, execution and event marketing. He worked for Enron Corp. as a sports marketing specialist before joining the Texans. Grissom also spent more than four years with the Houston Astros as an account services manager and later as the club’s promotions coordinator.

Grissom serves on the Board of Directors for the United Way of Greater Houston and the Houston Food Bank. A native of Austin, he attended Baylor University. He lives in Houston with his wife, Jamie, their daughter, Campbell, and son, Sam.
