FORT BEND COUNTY (Covering Fort Bend News) - The Trustees of The George Foundation recently elected John Null to the board for a special three-year term. Null replaces Trustee Don Wenzel of Needville, who was appointed in 2012 and retired after providing service and contributions to the Foundation during his tenure. Null previously served a ten-year term as Trustee of The George Foundation ending in March 2018 and will provide experienced leadership to the Foundation during his special term.
Null was born in Texas City and is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin. He is a CPA and CFP and was the founder and managing partner of Null-Lairson before it merged with another firm in 2012. He was recently recognized by the Texas Society of CPAs for outstanding service to the profession for 50 consecutive years.
Null has served on numerous nonprofit boards across Fort Bend County including leadership roles as past chairman of the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce and was a founder of the Fort Bend ISD Education Foundation.
Null and his wife Diana reside in Sugar Land and have three adult children, all graduates of Dulles High School. Their daughter Tracy and her family live in Sugar Land while their two sons, Chris and Brad, live with their families in the San Francisco area. Each family has two children – a boy and a girl – thus the Nulls spend a great deal of time with grandparent duties.
Serving on the Foundation’s Board with Null will be Trustees Tom McNutt, Ruthanne Mefford, Jim Condrey, and Steve Ewbank.
