Owen has been with the UT Club for over eleven years, beginning as a server and moving up through the ranks. He moved from his hometown of Plano in 2003 to attend Texas State University and has lived in Austin ever since. He met his wife Jaclyn at the Club, and are the proud parents of Evelyn and they also have two fur babies at home. Owen loves floating the river with friends and family, any kind of trivia competition, and all things sports. He still can’t believe the ball got over Nelson Cruz’s head, believes firmly that Dez caught it, doesn’t understand why more people don’t like hockey, and thinks that if Colt didn’t get injured there would be another trophy in the case.

George was born in Syracuse, New York, but grew up in Orlando, Florida and obtained his degree in Hospitality Management in 2014 from the University of Central Florida’s Rosen College. George began his career with ClubCorp spending 4 years at the Citrus Club in Orlando in various Food and Beverage roles before serving as Service Director at City Club Birmingham for 6 months. He then left ClubCorp to serve as Clubhouse Manager with Troon at NorthRiver Yacht Club in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, for 15 months. The opportunity to work at a Stadium Club as prestigious and successful as The University of Texas Club brought George back to where his career began with ClubCorp.

George is a huge sports fan and die-hard Syracuse University (and now, of course, UT), Philadelphia Eagles (don’t hold that against him), New York Yankees and Orlando Magic fan, as well as a huge supporter of United States National Team Soccer (he almost cried when we missed the World Cup in 2018). He relocated to Austin for his current role with his girlfriend, Parker, and their English Bulldog, Tilly. When George is not at the Club, you can find him watching a random sporting event or out somewhere with their pup!
