Texas Tech chancellor tapped for Fort Worth-based firm's board

Longtime former politician and attorney Kent R. Hance, current and retiring chancellor of the Texas Tech University System, has been elected to the board of directors of Carlile Bancshares Inc. in Fort Worth.
Hance, 71, became Texas Tech’s third chancellor in December 2006. During his tenure, he has elevated the university’s system to its highest historic enrollment, and led a capital campaign that raised more than $1 billion for the university.
Hance, who will become chancellor emeritus after his retirement at the end of July, plans to return to his Austin law firm of Hance Scarborough LLP. In addition to his administration law practice, he provides an extensive background in oil and gas and energy-related law.


Hance’s public service includes serving as a state senator, and later as a U.S. Congressman for the 19th District, where he passed President Ronald Reagan’s tax cut in 1981, the largest in the history of the nation. Hance also served on the Texas Railroad Commission from 1987 to 1991, serving as its chairman in 1989-1990.
A native of Dimmitt, Texas, Hance earned a business degree from Texas Tech University and a law degree from the University of Texas School of Law. He and his wife, Susie, who is also an attorney, will reside in Austin. They have five children and seven grandchildren.
Carlile Bancshares Inc. is a multi-bank holding company with 49 banks currently in Texas and Colorado. Carlile’s combined assets total $2.3 billion, including the recent acquisition of Community Bank in Fort Worth.
