Board members thank retiring ECD Director Steve West for his service
David Lane, the newest member of The Energy Corridor District (ECD) Board of Directors, has been developing popular master-planned, mixed-use business communities in Houston for decades.
Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer for Wolff Companies since 1988, Lane was elected to serve on the District's all-volunteer board during its February public meeting. For Wolff Companies, Lane is responsible for all of the firm's financial, investment and legal affairs, as well as public relations, advertising and property management.
"I look forward to continuing Wolff Companies' commitment to West Houston and The Energy Corridor," says Lane, "particularly as The Corridor enters its next phase of growth - becoming a true urban center with a matching lifestyle and growth trajectory."
ECD board members also thanked retiring director Steve West for years of volunteer service. West, Director of Houston leasing for Granite Properties, served as the board's secretary/treasurer. The District leveraged his expertise as a member of the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties, Downtown Houston Association and the Urban Land Institute.
The District's all-volunteer board represents property owners, guiding ECD staff and its initiatives on strategic master planning, transportation mobility, streetscape and urban design, public safety and business development.
Community service is an integral part of Lane's life. He is President of the Wortham Center Operating Company; its Wortham Center is home to Houston Ballet and Houston Grand Opera. Lane also is a current or former board member of the Association for Community Television, the Business ArtsFund, The Houston Lyric Theatre Foundation and the Greater Houston Committee for Prevention of Child Abuse.
