About George P. Bush
Bush is a native-born Texan, a graduate of Rice University and the University of Texas Law School. A military veteran, he served in the U.S. Naval Reserve for 10 years and completed an 8-month tour in Afghanistan. A former businessman, Bush cut his professional teeth in the oil and gas and real estate industries.
In 2014, Bush was elected as the 28th Texas Land Commissioner and overwhelmingly re-elected in 2018. During his two terms in office, he built a track record of success collaborating with local, state, and federal officials to make government work better for the citizens of Texas.
Through his leadership of the Texas General Land Office, Bush helped thousands of Texans recover from natural disasters, funded Texas public education through the Permanent School Fund, provided benefits to Texas veterans, and preserved the Alamo, vast Texas coastline, and other state-owned lands for future generations of Texans. He also fought to protect the oil and gas industry from federal overreach and bureaucratic rulemaking – and won.
Bush is the grandson of President George H.W. Bush, the son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and the nephew of President George W. Bush. He lives in Austin with his wife, Amanda, and their two sons.
Upon joining Michael Best Strategies, LLC. in January of this year as a principal Bush stated: "I'm thrilled to continue my work in service to fast-growing and dynamic clients in Texas and the rest of the nation as part of Michael Best's team." "Michael Best's focus on the critical issues facing Texas and the nation at large combined with their exceptional team of talented lawyers and advisory experts make for the perfect platform to continue serving the American people."
