George P. Bush Bio:
George’s current focus is on providing direction and management of investor relations functions in addition to sourcing and providing analysis of potential investment opportunities with Pennybacker Capital. Pennybacker Capital invests in and operates middle market multifamily, retail, office and industrial assets in sustainable growth markets with a primary focus on the four major Texas markets. Pennybacker Capital targets discounted properties and debt instruments that are complex, off market, and/or undervalued. These assets traditionally generate current income, have strong capital appreciation potential, and have a margin of safety around their basis value.
Prior to joining Pennybacker Capital, George practiced corporate and securities law with Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld LLP conducting legal due diligence and preparing transaction documents in connection with mergers, acquisitions, offerings, credit facilities, securities filings and divestitures for private equity clients and publicly held corporations. While practicing in the Investment Funds Group at Akin Gump, he was selected as one of Texas Monthly’s “Rising Stars” (2005). After graduating from law school, he clerked for the Honorable Sidney A. Fitzwater, a U.S. District Judge for the Northern District of Texas. George received his undergraduate degree from Rice University and obtained his Juris Doctorate from The University of Texas School of Law. He is a member of the Texas Bar Association, ICSC, and CCIM.
George recently returned from a mobilization in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in his capacity as a Naval Reserves Intelligence Officer where he was deployed to Afghanistan under the Special Operations Command.
George has been involved with a variety of non-profit organizations ranging from leading a $30MM capital campaign for Big Brothers Big Sisters in North Texas to serving as Chairman of the Dallas Celebration of Reading that on average raises $1MM for the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy on an annual basis. George is currently spearheading an effort to expand upon the presence of a highly successful Dallas based charter school (Uplift Education) in Tarrant County.
George’s political activities commenced with the numerous campaigns of his grandfather, President George H.W. Bush, at the national level. He was also involved with three gubernatorial races in Florida in support of his father, Governor Jeb Bush, and served as a surrogate speaker for his uncle, President George W. Bush, in connection with both of his campaigns for President. George maintains his passion for politics through his current positions as Chairman of MAVPAC, a political action committee focused on engaging younger Americans in the political process; and Chairman and co-founder of Hispanic Republicans of Texas, the first Texas based political action committee that identifies, recruits and comprehensively supports Hispanic candidates for Texas state political offices.
George has been privileged to also serve his country as a member of several diplomacy missions including Nicaragua for the second peaceful transfer of power in that country, Brazil for the Pan-American Games in 2007 and also joined a congressional mission to Saudi Arabia during the ‘Arab Spring’ of 2011.
