Houston attorney Vinh Ho was named the Houston Bar Association’s new executive director effective May 13, the HBA announced in a press release. Ho has over 16 years of experience in immigration and family law, civil matters, and nonprofit leadership. He will succeed current Executive Director Mindy G. Davidson, who will retire later this year after five years of service to the HBA in that position.

“I am thrilled to join the Houston Bar Association,” Ho said in a press release. “I have dedicated my career to public service and look forward to serving Houston lawyers in furtherance of our profession and the administration of justice.”
