Under Rootes’ leadership, the Texans have earned many distinctions, including numerous “Crystal Awards” for marketing excellence. J.D. Power & Associates recognized the team for providing the best fan experience in the NFL and even featured the Texans as a service success story in their book entitled “Satisfaction.” The Texans were also recognized with Sports Business Journal’s PRISM Award, which is given annually to the top major professional sports team based on business excellence criteria. In 2015, the Texans extended their sell-out streak to 14 consecutive seasons, a Houston record and a testament to the quality of service and entertainment provided by the organization on game day. As a result, the Texans have consistently been recognized as one of the most valuable professional sports franchises both in the NFL and globally, as measured by a variety of business publications. In 2016, the Texans were once again recognized by the Houston Chronicle as one of “Houston’s Top Workplaces” which marks the fourth consecutive year the organization has been honored.

Rootes was selected twice by SportsBusiness Journal as a member of its distinguished “Forty Under 40” list of leading sports executives and in 2014 was named a finalist for Executive of the Year by the Stadium Business Awards. Rootes maintains an active role in the community and serves on a number of boards, including the United Way, the Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the Greater Houston Partnership, where he served as the 2015 Vice Chairman. He also oversees the activities of the Houston Texans Foundation, which generated over $1.65 million in 2015 to benefit youth and families in the Houston area. Since inception, the Texans have helped raise more than $26 million through annual fundraising events, disaster response programs, the team’s United Way campaign and partnerships with non-profit organizations.

Prior to joining the Texans, Rootes helped to launch Major League Soccer as president and general manager of the Columbus Crew. During his tenure, the Crew was consistently among the league’s strongest teams both on and off the field, and Rootes was recognized as Executive of the Year in 1996 and Marketing Executive of the Year in 1999. Rootes helped lead the construction of Crew Stadium in 1999, which was the first stadium of its type in the United States. This facility earned distinction as America’s Foremost Sports Facility of the Year and led to the development of numerous soccer-specific stadiums across the United States, including BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston.

A native of Stone Mountain, Ga., Rootes graduated Cum Laude from the Calhoun Honors College at Clemson University, served as Student Body President and was a member of the Tigers’ soccer team that captured two NCAA titles. While earning a master’s of business administration with honors at Indiana University, he served as an assistant soccer coach for the Hoosiers. Rootes previously held positions at IBM and Procter & Gamble before entering sports. He lives in West University with his wife, Melissa, and their children, Chris and Caroline.
