“We knew Joe was going to have a successful career in the business from the moment he walked in the door, and it’s been tremendously exciting to witness his rapid growth firsthand—not many in our industry make it from Associate to SVP in just four years,” said Gary Hebert, Managing Director of NAI Partners’ Austin office. “Joe’s current clients are lucky to have him delivering world-class service each and every day, and his future office tenant clients in San Antonio and Austin will also be fortunate to soon enjoy Joe’s elevated standard of client service excellence.”

Some of Mr. Bright’s signature transactions of the last few years include a 48,000-sq.-ft. build-to-suit lease for HCA Houston Healthcare; a 27,614-sq.-ft. office lease for AES Drilling Fluids at 575 N. Dairy Ashford; and a new office lease for Key Capture Energy Group at 801 Congress St. in Houston.

Mr. Bright is a formerly-practicing Attorney, whose transactional law practice centered around representing and advising energy industry clients in the exploration and production of oil and gas. He enjoys spending his free time outdoors with his wife Lauren and their two children, friends, and two Labradors.

Mr. Bright earned his Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Texas at Austin, and his Juris Doctorate Degree from the University of Houston.
