Todd Kercheval was born in Irving, Texas. Shortly after his birth, the family moved to Houston, where he attended and graduated from Aldine High School.
After graduating from Sam Houston State University, where he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Economics in 1997, Todd was hired by the Texas Racing Commission as supervisor over the drug testing and investigation at all tracks in Texas. While there, he reorganized and streamlined the reporting process used to monitor the large amount of data kept on horses and trainers.
In December 1998, he left the Racing Commission to assume the position as Clerk for the Senate sub - committee on Agriculture, reporting to the late Senator Tom Haywood. After handling the agriculture and natural resources issues during the 1999 session of the Texas Legislature, Todd joined the Texas Farm Bureau to implement a highly successful pilot program designed to create better understanding and cooperation between rural and metropolitan counties within the state.Read More
In January 2003, he was asked to return to Austin and clerk the House Committee on Culture, Recreation and Tourism under Chairman Harvey Hilderbran. This committee coordinates issues related to Parks and Wildlife, The Historical Commission, Tourism and the Commission on the Arts. Todd served as Chief of Staff of this important committee, while also coordinating research and serving as senior policy advisor on legislation concerning natural resources, tax reform, and other critical issues.
Todd was instrumental in the 80th legislature’s passage of HB12, which revamped the state parks system and created a funding and operation structure providing for future growth.
Todd then served as Chief of Staff for Chairman Jim Pitts, who chaired the House Appropriations Committee. During his tenure there, the House unanimously passed HB1, the state budget. This is the only time in modern Texas history a unanimous vote occurred related to passing the budget.
Todd currently owns and manages a successful consulting company with a variety of clients. Todd spends much of his free time as an auctioneer. He is a graduate of the World Wide College of Auctioneering, in Mason City, Iowa. Todd has been selling for a number of years and has sold a wide variety of auctions.
