TABC Announces Change to Executive Leadership

Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission Executive Director Sherry Cook will retire from her position May 23 following more than 40 years of public service to the people of Texas.

"It has been an honor and a pleasure serving the people of Texas for all these years," said Cook. "I want to thank all of the employees and peace officers at TABC for their hard work, dedication and support. I'm very proud of all they have accomplished keeping Texans safe and regulating a growing industry."

"Sherry Cook epitomizes the strength of Texas women, having risen from a single parent working at the Department of Public Safety to the highest ranks of the leadership at TABC," said TABC Chairman Jos├ę Cuevas, Jr. "I'd like to congratulate her on her retirement and wish her Godspeed."

The three-member Commission will discuss appointing Cook's successor at their May 23 meeting.
