Since joining the Texans, Rootes has overseen the team’s efforts to secure stadium naming rights and sponsorship, coordinated radio and TV broadcasting relationships, engineered the club’s successful ticket and suite sales campaigns, led the creation and launch of the team’s identity and developed the team’s highly-acclaimed customer service strategy.

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. After securing back-to-back AFC South Championships in 2011 and 2012, the Texans have extended their sell-out streak to 122 consecutive home games, a Houston NFL 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 2012, the Houston Texans were recognized as one of Houston’s “Best Places to Work” by the Houston Business Journal.  In 2013, the Texans were recognized by the Houston Chronicle as one of “Houston’s Top Workplaces”.

Rootes was selected twice by SportsBusiness Journal as a member of its distinguished “Forty Under 40” list of leading sports executives. Following the 2013 season, Rootes 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 Greater Houston Partnership, the Houston Food Bank, the Presbyterian School and the Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau. He also oversees the activities of the Houston Texans Foundation, which generated more than $1 million in 2013 to benefit youth and families in the Houston area. Since inception, the Texans have helped raise more than $20 million through annual fundraising events, disaster response programs, the United Way and partnerships with non-profit organizations on game day.

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 over the past decade, including BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston.

A native of Stone Mountain, Ga., Rootes attended Clemson University and was a member of the Tigers’ soccer team that captured two NCAA titles. He also served as Student Body President. While earning a master’s of business administration 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, Christopher and Caroline.
