Public News (Houston) - - PUBLIC NEWS EVENTS -

The FM 1960 St. Pa­trick's Pa­rade Com­mit­tee is proud to an­nounce that the Grand Mar­shal for the 2017 Pa­rade is Scott McClel­land.

Scott is the Pres­i­dent of H-E-B's Hous­ton Divi­sion and is the lo­cal face of H-E-B, star­ring in TV com­mer­cials along with JJ Watt, Craig Big­gio, and other lo­cal no­ta­bles. Here's one of our fa­vorites.

Scott McClel­land is also the face of H-E-B in the com­mu­nity, serv­ing on nu­mer­ous lo­cal boards in­clud­ing the Greater Hous­ton Part­ner­ship where he serves on the Ex­ec­u­tive Board and also chairs the Ed­u­ca­tion Ad­vi­sory Com­mit­tee. Scott is the for­mer board chair of the Hous­ton Food Bank and headed its $56 mil­lion cap­i­tal cam­paign to fund the con­struc­tion of the largest food bank ware­house in the United States. Scott spear­headed Hous­ton Su­per Bowl of Car­ing Food Drive, which is now the largest in the state and col­lects over two mil­lion pounds of food for Hous­ton's hun­gry every year. In ad­di­tion, he sits on the boards of Memo­rial Her­mann Hos­pi­tals, Early Mat­ters, and Brighter Bites.

Now, McClel­land is lend­ing his sup­port and that of the Hous­ton Divi­sion of H-E-B to the An­nual FM 1960 Pa­rade which pro­vides tu­ition as­sis­tance to EMTs and Paramedics of the fu­ture. McClel­land said, “Be­ing Ir­ish my­self, I love St. Pa­trick's Day. So whether you're Ir­ish or want to be Ir­ish for a just a day, come out to the an­nual FM 1960 Pa­rade on Sun­day, March 12th and let's get our green on!”

Pa­rade Com­mit­tee Chair­man Jeff Do­ran said, “We could not be more pleased that Scott has ac­cepted our in­vi­ta­tion to serve as Grand Mar­shal. Scott and the folks of the Hous­ton Divi­sion of H-E-B are very com­mu­nity minded and have al­ways been huge sup­port­ers of Cy­press Creek EMS and the 1960 Pa­rade.”

Scott has worked at H-E-B since 1990 af­ter a 10-year ca­reer at Frito-Lay. He's served in a number of Mar­ket­ing and Op­er­a­tions po­si­tions be­fore mov­ing to Hous­ton and be­com­ing the Divi­sion Pres­i­dent.

Un­der McClel­land's lead­er­ship, H-EB's has grown from an 11% share to a mar­ket lead­ing 27% share by open­ing larger stores with a heavy em­pha­sis on low prices, lo­cally sourced prod­ucts and tai­lored as­sort­ment based on the neigh­bor­hoods around each store.

McClel­land re­ceived his bach­e­lor's de­gree in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion from the Uni­ver­sity of South­ern Cal­i­for­nia and grad­u­ated from Har­vard's Ad­vanced Man­age­ment Pro­gram.
