Mitchell Glieber, President, State Fair of Texas.

Mitchell Glieber joined the State Fair of Texas in 1999, spending the majority of his time working with corporate partners developing sponsorship, marketing, and promotional programs, more than tripling sponsorship revenue.

Since it’s inception in 1886, the State Fair of Texas is a nonprofit organization that celebrates all things Texan by promoting agriculture, education, and community involvement through quality entertainment in a family-friendly environment. The fair hosts one of the largest annual events in the world and its largest fundraiser of the year of the same name, the State Fair of Texas.

Prior to joining the State Fair, Mitchell spent nearly a decade with the Dallas Mavericks marketing team, serving as the organization’s sales manager for season and group tickets.

Raised in Dallas, Mitchell graduated from Southern Methodist University with a double-major in Finance and TV & Radio. As a wide receiver, he served as captain of the SMU Mustangs football team in 1989 and was chosen as one of only 11 National Football Foundation Scholar Athletes in the country, that same year.
