Becci Himes has been the executive director of the British-American Business Council Houston since 2004. Her previous life in the business world was in consumer and commercial lending, including workouts for the Resolution Trust Corporation. Ms. Himes admits working for a non-profit trade organization has been a tremendous challenge. But, it's a challenge that she has thoroughly enjoyed. Helping companies find the services and/or the partners they need within the British American business community has been very satisfying and at the end of the day, fun.
Becci is a third generation Texan. Although she has lived from West Texas to Dallas and Padre Island, she has called Houston home since 1975. Time not spent finding opportunities for British and American companies to do business is spent supporting youth rugby in Houston or helping produce local Celtic events. Becci has recently taken on the role of Nan to her first grandson, followed closely by grandson number two.
