Meet the Bautex Team - Paul Brown, President

Paul Brown, Bautex PresidentPaul Brown brings lead­er­ship, com­mit­ment and enthu­si­asm to his role as president of Bautex Systems. A serial entre­pre­neur, he earned his under­grad­u­ate degree from the Plan II honors program at The Uni­ver­si­ty of Texas at Austin and his MBA at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business. He has enjoyed a diverse career working in indus­tries ranging from tech­nol­o­gy and telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions to con­struc­tion products. At Bautex Systems, one day he’s hosting lunch and learn meetings with archi­tects, and the next day, he’s building test walls with plant manager Chris Leonard (he likes to fire the air canon as much as the next guy).

Paul is proud of how the Bautex team applies itself to man­u­fac­ture and test its products to ensure they perform at and above building code require­ments for effi­cien­cy, storm and fire safety and sound reduction. Out of the office, Paul shares his enthu­si­asm for materials recycling, sus­tain­able and green building practices and the changing landscape of the con­struc­tion industry. He says the industry has a sig­nif­i­cant oppor­tu­ni­ty to develop more energy efficient and resilient struc­tures to improve quality of life. He is currently serving a 2‑year term as director of the Central Texas Balcones Chapter of US Green Building Council.

Brown says several con­verg­ing themes are affecting demand for sus­tain­able products and resilient design and con­struc­tion. Office buildings are the biggest energy users in the United States, making them one of the key drivers in the growing private and public demand for more energy effi­cien­cy,” he says. As energy efficient and sus­tain­able building practices become the norm, I think the market will be more inter­est­ed in new products that do more with fewer resources. It’s not enough to be made of recycled material. It has to be higher per­form­ing, stronger, and safer. That’s why I’m invested in the success of Bautex Systems. We have a product and a system that really does more with less.”
