Austin is an Associate in the Dallas office of Focus Search Partners. He grew up in Albuquerque, NM, and headed to college in Abilene, Texas where he played baseball and double majored in business. His studies and zeal for athletics led him to work for a branding and design firm in Nashville, TN, and later Los Angeles, CA that focused on athletic facility and venue upgrades as well as fan engagement experiences.
For the past 6+ years, Austin has worked for a youth outreach organization called Young Life, as the Area Director of North Dallas, serving ten area schools.
A native New Mexican, Austin’s sports loyalties lie with whoever was great during his early childhood; NY Yankees, Dallas Cowboys, and is most intensely a fan of (college football and) his wife’s alma mater, the Texas Longhorns.
