Founder of Earth Day Texas; President of the Crow Family Foundation
Trammell S. Crow is the President of the Crow Family Foundation, which operates and manages The Trammell and Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art. His passion for the arts encompasses a broad range of forms — from Beatles records to graphic novels based on historical events.
These days, Mr. Crow’s creative energy is channeled toward environmental leadership at a time when the world desperate needs it. He is the founder of Earth Day Texas, the largest annual environmental exhibition and programming initiative in the world. What started as an event covering a few blocks in Dallas in 2011 has expanded to a year-round series of events, forums and more. In 2016, Earth Day Texas welcomed its largest audience ever as it continues to grow as the hub for education, innovation and relationship building not just within the environmental community, but beyond, as we all have a stake in the future of our planet. Mr. Crow also serves on the board of directors for ConservAmerica and is a co-founder of Texas Business for Clean Air and Texans for Clean Water.
Mr. Crow is a long-term supporter of the Texas Conservation Alliance, the Nature Conservancy of Texas, Texans for Lawsuit Reform, Log Cabin Republicans, and the League of Conservation Voters. He supports various non-profit organizations that are active in family planning, education, the environment, community initiatives and political causes.
Prior to assuming his present responsibilities, Mr. Crow had various other positions within the Crow family businesses. Mr. Crow began his career as a warehouse leasing agent in Denver before transferring to Houston to develop residential subdivisions and, subsequently, to lease retail space. Returning to Dallas to join the development team of the Anatole Hotel, he later worked at the Dallas Market Center when it expanded by over 2 million square feet. By 1985, he had developed the Dallas Communications Complex, the Studios at Las Colinas, INFOMART and the Dallas/Fort Worth Teleport. From 1986 to 1993, Mr. Crow was the Chief Executive Officer of Trammell Crow International, overseeing the Brussels International Trade Mart (largest in Europe) and developing additional trade marts in Asia.
In his downtime, Mr. Crow’s hobbies include collecting rocks, reading and appreciating art with any of his five senses. He is the father of Nathan, Margaret, Daniel and Isabella.
