Charlie Betts was the Executive Director of the Downtown Austin Alliance for 17 years. He retired in February of 2015. In his time with the DAA, Austin has transformed from college town to cosmopolitan city. Betts has dedicated his time at the DAA to advocating for better transportation options, dense development to accommodate our growing city, improvements to the public amenities like Waller Creek, and permanent supportive housing for the chronically homeless. 

Charlie’s many other leadership roles include past director of the International Downtown Association, founding member of the Austin Area Research Organization, board member of the Austin History Center Association, Trustee Emeritus of St. Edward’s University, and Elder at Covenant Presbyterian Church.
