Houston, Texas Executive Search City Snapshot:

Welcome to Houston, Texas; “Space City,” “H-Town,” the “Energy Capital of the World,” and Men’s Health Magazine’s “Fattest City in America.” Houston is HUGE (and not just the people). The city is home to over 2 million people and one of the tallest skylines in the world. Houston’s JP Morgan Chase Tower, Wells Fargo Bank Plaza, and Williams Tower all crack the list of top 50 tallest buildings in the U.S. As of 2012, 10 of the nation’s 100 tallest buildings are in Houston. Some famous people raised in this large, Texas city are: director Wes Anderson; broadcast journalist Walter Cronkite; South Park’s Matt Stone; actors Dennis and Randy Quaid, Patrick Swayze, and Isaiah Washington; comedian Bill Hicks; athletes Clyde Drexler, Vince Young, Roger Clemens, and George Foreman; singers Beyoncé Knowles, Lyle Lovett, Kelly Rowland, and Kenny Rogers; aerospace engineer, film director, and entrepreneur Howard Hughes; and famed heart surgeon Denton Cooley.

In 1836 Augustus Chapman Allen and John Kirby Allen purchased the land that is present day Houston, Texas. The Allen brothers were real estate entrepreneurs from New York who wanted to build a city along the Buffalo Bayou and take advantage of shipping routes to the Gulf of Mexico. They decided to name the city Houston after Sam Houston, hero of the Battle of San Jacinto and first president of the Republic of Texas. The city grew rapidly and by 1837 was the temporary capital of Texas.

By the 1860s, Houston had become a commercial shipping center for the South. During the American Civil War access to the city expanded to accommodate for Confederate Army operations. Then, in 1901, oil was discovered near Beaumont, Texas. This sparked the development of the Texas petroleum industry, which is still Houston’s most valuable industry today. By 1930 Houston was Texas’ most populated city.

After WWII, Houston experienced another population boom. In 1961 NASA built its “Manned Spacecraft Center” in Houston, which it used to defeat the Soviets in the race for lunar domination. Also, the invention of air conditioning led many companies to move their headquarters to the Houston area. Since its foundation, the city of Houston has not stopped growing. However, in the 1980s Houston’s economy suffered a slight setback as a result of the drop in nation-wide oil prices. Although it is still heavily reliant on its oil industry,

Houston has tried to diversify its economy over the last couple decades by growing its healthcare, biotechnology, and aerospace industries.

According to 2010 Census data, 2,099,451 people live in Houston. An estimated 400,000 more undocumented, illegal immigrant reside in the city as well. Houston is a young, multicultural city with a wide variation of ethnic and racial backgrounds. As a result the city is also very segregated. For the most part, Whites and Asians live in the western part of the city. Blacks tend to live in the north, east, and south ends of the city while Hispanic neighborhoods make up the city’s northeast and southeast residential zones.

Also, many of Houston’s residents are young. 17.16% of the city’s population is made up of 25 to 34 year olds. This demographic makes up only 13.4% of the national population. Many of the city’s young people are immigrants. Over 500,000 Houston residents are foreign born with 19.4% of the city’s population hailing from Latin America. Houston’s rate of foreign-born residents (26.4%) is nearly twice as high as that of Texas (13.9%).
