Meet Your Board of Directors – Mr. Jeff Anderson

Jeff Anderson was appointed in December by LID #15’s Board of Directors to fill the vacant director position in Precinct #3. He has extensive knowledge in all aspects of a levee district’s operations. Jeff was the development manager for Taylor Woodrow (Morrison) for the original Avalon neighborhood located within the boundaries of LID #14 to the west of our district. His oversight included the creation of a new levee district along with the design, permitting and construction of the levee. Jeff worked closely with the LID #14 board and their consultants during its initial years of existence.

Upon his departure from Taylor Woodrow (Morrison) in 2003, the county commissioner approached Jeff to fill an open position on the LID #14 board. Jeff served as the district’s board president from 2003 until his recent appointment with LID #15. He was instrumental in negotiating the financial cost-sharing agreement amongst seven levee districts when the perimeter levee was raised in 2008.

Jeff and his wife moved to Riverstone in late 2017. “Living only a few lots away from the levee district’s pump station I was keenly interested in the district’s operations. When I learned that a board position was available, I immediately submitted my resume. I knew that I had the required experience and was eager to share my knowledge.”

Jeff is the owner of Crossmark Development & Construction, LLC a commercial and residential Design+Build construction company. He has served as President of the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce and Fort Bend Habitat for Humanity. He enjoys helping others and is currently spearheading volunteer efforts to rebuild a church in Wharton severely damaged by Hurricane Harvey. Each summer Jeff sets aside time to rebuild/refurbish homes across the nation for Group Mission Trips. Jeff and his wife Cindy have been married for 40 years and have resided in Sugar Land since 1993. They have two grown children and four grandchildren.

Please welcome Mr. Jeff Anderson to the board of directors of your Levee Improvement District 15.

Meet Your Board of Directors – Mr. Premal Shah

One of the newest board members of the Levee Improvement District is Mr. Premal Shah, who will be serving as the assistant vice president. His term runs through May 2022. He is eager to get started on his work with the board and will be helping the community by reducing the risk of flooding.

Mr. Shah has a long history of working in complex finance positions throughout his career. His notable roles include CFO for Fortune Oil Plc, structured finance and credit roles for Hong Kong & Singapore-based financial institutions, and he is now the Chief Investment Officer for Sprint Waste Services LP. His responsibilities at Sprint Waste involve three parts: (1) company acquisitions; (2) advise on operational and financial restructuring of those companies; (3) sell them at an appropriate time.

Former Commissioner James Patterson and former County Judge Bob Hebert are community figures that played a part in inspiring Mr. Shah’s own desire to commit to public service and he is looking forward to working with the new commissioner as well as the new county judge. He also appreciated being part of a community that supported each other during the infamous Hurricane Harvey.

On a bicycle or at the golf course is where you will catch Mr. Shah in his free time. He also has a wife of 22 years, and two teenage sons that he enjoys snowboarding trips during the winter.

Please welcome Mr. Premal Shah to the board of directors for your Levee Improvement District 15.
