About ULI Houston Staff

Ann Taylor, ULI Houston Executive Director, brings to ULI more than 18 years of experience in communications consulting and public relations for clients in real estate development, financial services, and transportation. Her background includes work on high-profile programs, such as a six-year campaign for downtown Houston’s largest new construction program at the time. The communications program reached a wide variety of stakeholders—news media, donors, elected officials, historic preservationists, downtown employers and employees, and others, and won the highest award for an ongoing communications campaign from her peers in the Public Relations Society of America.

A graduate of Rice University and former owner of one of Houston’s top independent PR firms, Ann has won awards for crisis communications, non-profit public relations campaigns, and news and feature writing. Ann’s marketing and public relations campaigns for leading residential and commercial real estate developers, as well as architecture, engineering and construction firms, has focused on environmental stewardship and the responsible use of land.

"Our Members are the best in the industry, and I look forward to working with them to reach out to our Community to guide Houston’s continued development into a dynamic, globally-competitive city."
