    Tudor to succeed Crownover as chair of Rice Board of Trustees

    Rice University alumnus Bobby Tudor will replace Jim Crownover as the next chair of the Rice Board of Trustees. Tudor, chairman and CEO of energy investment and merchant bank Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co., will take on the role following the expiration of Crownover’s term on June 30.

    Bobby Tudor

    Tudor was elected to the board in 2006 and re-elected to a four-year term in 2010. He is co-chair of Rice’s $1 billion Centennial Campaign. He has presided over the “R” Association’s board of directors and on the Association of Rice Alumni Board of Directors and received the 2008 Distinguished Owl Club Award.

    Tudor graduated from Rice in 1982 with a BA in English and legal studies. While at Rice, he was a member and officer of Hanszen College and a student representative on the University Committee on Examinations and Standing. He won the Bob Quin Award his senior year for being the male athlete who most exemplified distinction in athletics, academics and leadership.

    “I’m thrilled that Bobby is bringing his passion for Rice to the chairmanship of our board,” president David Leebron said. “I’ve worked with Bobby in his capacity as co-chair of the capital campaign, and I know he will bring that dedication and demonstrated leadership to his new role. This will be a very effective partnership as we continue to build Rice’s reputation and its contributions to our city, country and world.”

    Following graduation from Tulane Law School in 1987, Tudor began a nearly 20-year career at Goldman Sachs, where he was a partner and worked in the New York, London and Houston offices. He founded Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co. in 2007.

     “Bobby is ‘intensely local,’ like Rice,” noted Crownover in a prepared statement. “He is very committed to Rice, to his community and to his family. But, also like Rice, he has had extensive global experience and accomplishments. That local commitment and global connection will serve Rice well.”

    A 1965 Rice alumnus, Crownover became a Rice trustee in 1999 and is currently in his second term as board chair.
