No Turning Back: Tyson Voelkel

By Stan McChrystal & Christopher Fussell

This week, Stan McChrystal and Chris Fussell sat down with Tyson Voelkel, the President of the Texas A&M Foundation. The Texas A&M Foundation aims to build a brighter future for Texas A&M University as its primary academic fundraising institution. Most recently, the Foundation raised over $4.25 billion in Texas’s largest higher education campaign - a scale of at least $1.2 million every day, for 365 days straight. Tyson is a thoughtful, adaptable leader who brings his 12 years of leadership as an infantry officer in the US Army to the Texas A&M Foundation. Stan and Chris talk to Tyson about establishing trusted relationships between the fund, the university, and the donors - and learn how listening is crucial to the Foundation's success.
