John Moody Sr. finished out his three-year term as West Houston Association Chairman, January 1st, 2019. Moody’s tenure as Chairman of the Board began in 2016 and has been one of the guiding forces in the continued quality growth of the region.
Moody grew up in Houston and attended the St. John’s School preparatory academy where he currently serves as the chair of School Board. “John is all-in on everything he does,” said Carolyn Dorros, Executive Vice President of Wolff Companies and Chair of the West Houston Association’s Education and Workforce Development Committee. “He actively learns and listens, seeking out good ideas and discussion. He has a talent for taking good ideas and discussions and turning them into reality. I’ve seen it at the West Houston Association, St. John’s, and in what he builds.”
Moody worked in New York real estate for over a decade before returning to Houston. He established Parkside Capital, a real estate investment management company, in 2008 and currently serves as its chairman and CEO.
During his time serving as Chairman for WHA, Moody helped spearhead the West Houston Association 2060 Plan, the latest increment of the West Houston 2050 Plan created in 2007. Moody also was instrumental in getting support for the Harris County Flood Control Bond Election, even going on local area radio shows such as Houston Matters and write op-ed articles for the Chronicle to spread the message of the plan.
“If we build this community the right way, and we pay attention to the things that matter, like education,transportation, infrastructure, and open space, we can accommodate this growth and make our area more sustainable,” said Moody.
Moody also serves on several other public and private corporate boards and will continue to serve on the West Houston Association’s Executive Committee in the new year. Thank you John, for all your hard work and dedication to making our region a better one, not just for us but for the future.
