“Greg’s extensive industry knowledge is evident by the meaningful relationships he continues to develop with our partners, our community and Texans teammates,” said Texans Chairman and CEO Cal McNair. “While going through the interview process, Greg’s intentional, forward-thinking approach showed an authenticity and commitment to championship-caliber excellence that made him the ideal choice to take on this role.”

According to the team, Grissom has more than two decades of experience in sports sponsorship sales, planning, execution and event marketing.
