Scott McClelland is the President of H-E-B Food/Drug Stores. HEB is a $24B retailer that operates 390 stores in Texas and Mexico. Scott has worked at H-E-B since 1990 after a ten year career at Pepsico’s Frito Lay division. He’s served in a number of Marketing and Operations positions before being named President of all HEB stores in July 2017. Previously McClelland served as President of HEB’s Houston operation. Under McClelland’s leadership, H-E-B’s grew from an 11% 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. Scott has been the local face for H-E-B, starring in TV commercials along with JJ Watt, Craig Biggio and other local notables. McClelland was HEB’s Chief Merchant and led different Marketing roles after being hired as the Region Vice President in Central Texas in 1990. H-E-B strives to be a good corporate citizen and as such Scott  serves on numerous local boards, including the Greater Houston Partnership where he serves on the Executive Board.  Scott is the former board chair of the Houston Food Bank and headed their $56mm 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 annually collects over 2 million pounds of food for Houston’s hungry. In addition, he sits on the boards of Memorial Hermann Hospitals and Brighter Bites. In 2017 McClelland co-founded an education based non-profit called C2C focused on improving education for ALL students across Harris County from cradle to career by eliminating achievement gaps. McClelland received his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Southern California and graduated from Harvard’s Advanced Management Program.


Beth Krueger started her adult life as a small business owner with a great passion for her community. When called to serve she took on roles such as event chair, board member and citizen advisory council member as a way to give back to the community that had given her so much. When she sold her business she spent some time exploring what was next.

It was then she fell into an opportunity to take her business mind and put it to work for her passion for community. As a no-profit professional for 25 + years, Beth had the chance to transform organization, ignite passion in donors and drive results for the clients and communities served by organizations Austin Humane Society, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Center for Child Protection, Habitat for Humanity, ASPCA and United Way. No mater her role as a leader, leadership team member or a consultant her passion has been to make the world a better place by engaging people in meaningful work.

When Beth was asked to serve on a community committee to explore the viability and development of the Austin Gives program she once again stepped up to serve. As a board member she immersed herself, her spheres of influence and her community leaders to get involved. When asked to take the lead as the program director she never hesitated.

With the commitment of the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce and the support of the Austin Business community the Austin Gives program has grown to 500+ businesses and has set the bar for how business is done in Austin TX and beyond. Beth dreams that together businesses and non-profits can forge partnerships that can make any community a great place to live for all its residents.
