A.J. Rodriguez, who has vast experience in San Antonio bringing business and civic leaders together to address community challenges, is joining Texas 2036 as Executive Vice President.
In this new role, Rodriguez will work with Margaret Spellings, President and CEO of Texas 2036 and former U.S. Secretary of Education, and Texas 2036 Chairman and Founder Tom Luce to build support for a legislative agenda and data-driven research initiatives designed to prepare Texans for the challenges facing our state, particularly on the issues of education, workforce readiness, health, broadband and government performance.
“A.J.’s experience bringing business and community leaders together on issues that matter to San Antonio and our state make A.J. a good fit for our organization and what we are trying to accomplish,” Spellings said. “Our state’s future hinges on how well we prepare people and our infrastructure for the opportunities and challenges we know are coming. Texas 2036 wants to build civic demand for specific solutions, helping Texans and our leaders focus on a fact-based set of priorities linked to our state’s prosperity. A.J. is the right leader to help bring Texas together to determine our future.”
