Our Speaker: Judge Ed Emmett

Edward M. Emmett became Harris County Judge on March 6, 2007.

A member of the Texas House of Representatives from 1979 to 1987, Emmett was chairman of the Committee on Energy, a member of the Transportation Committee, and represented the state on numerous national committees relating to energy and transportation policy.

In 1989, President George H. W. Bush nominated Emmett as a Commissioner at the Interstate Commerce Commission. After being confirmed unanimously by the United States Senate, he served on the commission for three years.

Prior to becoming County Judge, Emmett founded The Emmett Company, a multi-faceted international consulting and marketing firm specializing in policies, products and services primarily related to the transportation industry. His previous private sector experience includes service as president and chief operating officer of the National Industrial Transportation League.

Judge Emmett has spoken at transportation conferences and meetings across the United States and in more than 15 countries. He was named one of the Top 20 Logistics Professionals by the Logistics Forum in 2003, and the Transportation Clubs International presented him its “Transportation Person of the Year” award in 2005.

Judge Emmett attended Bellaire High School. He graduated from Rice University in 1971 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics and from the University of Texas at Austin in 1974 with a Master of Public Affairs degree.

Judge Emmett and his wife, Gwen, have been married for 34 years and have four children and two grandchildren.
