JD Burrows has been a member of HSC since 2008 and has served as a volunteer on several committees. Serving on the Membership Committee from 2010 to 2012, he had the pleasure of working the Convention floor and signing up new members. Having learned so much about the Club while signing up new members, he decided to take on a more prominent role in 2013. As the Immediate Past President, JD lead the Houston Safari Club Foundation through 2019-2020, where we grew membership and increased the relevance of the organization on Capitol Hill, in Austin, and most importantly in Houston. He and his wife Angie have been long time sponsors of Awards and Gazelles sponsors. In professional capacity, JD serves as the Vice President of Customer Engagement, Analytics & Strategies for ENGIE, a leading global energy company, and is responsible for branding, public relations, market analytics and pricing strategies.
He is married to Angie, and has three children Dalton, Trevor, and Charlotte. Interestingly, JD was born and grew up in Zimbabwe. He lived with his family on a small farm outside of Harare; this is where he gained his love for the outdoors. At every instant he tries to pass this love onto others by being involved in several conservation and education-based organizations such as the Boy Scouts of America, Woods and Water Kids, Ducks Unlimited, Safari Club International and Legacy Foundation.
As a challenge, JD encourages others to volunteer for an outdoor organization, mentor kids and invest in our Hunting Heritage.
