G. W. Hail is the Senior Vice President of Membership and Revenue Growth for the Dallas Regional Chamber, a newly created department upon his arrival in June. In this role, he is responsible for developing plans and strategies for revenue growth, including adding new members and investors to support the DRC’s economic development programs. In addition to managing the sales team, Mr. Hail is directly responsible for managing key customer relationships and works closely with the Membership Services team to ensure satisfaction during the first year of membership. As a member of the leadership team, he also works closely with all DRC departments on strategic initiatives and programs of work.

Previously, Mr. Hail was Vice President and Assistant General Manager of Lone Star Park at Grand Prairie. He was an original team member who oversaw the opening of the racetrack in 1996 and was primarily responsible for all facets of marketing and sales and the track’s website (lonestarpark.com). Mr. Hail led the marketing efforts for the most successful grand opening of a racetrack in modern history, and his efforts helped Lone Star Park become the youngest racetrack ever to host the Breeders’ Cup World Thoroughbred Championships in 2004. A record crowd of 53,717 attended the international event, and it was the fastest sellout in Breeders’ Cup history.

Prior to his experience at Lone Star Park, Mr. Hail was a Senior Vice President at Ackerman McQueen Advertising Agency for nine years.

Mr. Hail is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism (Advertising), and he is a board member of the Southern Methodist University Athletic Forum and the Executive Board of the American Diabetes Foundation. He also serves on the Advisory Board for the Kessler School in Dallas.

He resides in Dallas with his wife, Mindy, and daughter, Lucy.
