Panelist Biographies:

George Cofer
George Cofer, a sixth-generation Austinite and fifth-generationTexasrancher, is Executive Director of Hill Country Conservancy, a nonprofit land trust that marshals public and private resources to preserve the natural areas, scenic vistas, waters and rural heritage of the Texas Hill Country for people to enjoy for generations to come.

Cassie Gresham
Gresham, who joined Braun & Associates in 2004, was instrumental in bringing about the historic Dahlstrom Ranch conservation easement, a rare collaboration between a private landowner, a county, a federal agency, and a city to protect drinking water and provide public open space. She oversees the firm’s unique Ecological Laboratory program which arranges partnerships between rural landowners with research universities. Since the program’s inception in 2005 it has grown ten fold, and Gresham has successfully achieved EcoLab status for 106 landowners, secured almost 30,000 acres of land for ecological research and gained approval for EcoLab applications in 14 different appraisal districts. Gresham also leads the firm’s lobbying practice where she has worked on four successful bond-election campaigns, raising more than $100 million for central Texas open space, parks and water quality. Along with other members of the Braun & Gresham team, Gresham is actively representing landowners across Texas threatened by proposed transmission lines.

Patrick Rose
Patrick founded Corridor Title in October 2010, and serves as its President. He is responsible for managing the company, directing client services and development, and implementing Corridor Title’s growth. He is a graduate of the University of Texas Law School and Princeton University, and was first licensed to practice law in May 2006.

Patrick was born and raised in Dripping Springs, graduated from its public schools, and is active in the Dripping Springs and San Marcos communities. He served Hays, Caldwell, and Blanco Counties for eight years in the Texas House of Representatives. Patrick strongly believes that his responsibility, and that of Corridor Title and its employees, is to both deliver a high quality of customer service and to purposefully serve the communities of our region.
