Himesh Gandhi, Former Sugar Land Councilor, Appointed to Texas State Board of Public Accountancy

Former Sugar Land adviser Himesh Gandhi has been appointed by Gov. Greg Abbot to the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy, the governor’s office announced last week.

The Texas State Board of Public Accountancy ensures that certificates issued as Certified Public Accountants possess the necessary qualifications and can competently practice the profession of public accountant.

Gandhi’s term on the board is due to expire on January 31, 2025.

A Sugar Land-based lawyer and shareholder of Roberts Markel Weinberg Butler Hailey PC, Gandhi resigned from the Sugar Land City Council in November 2020 after four consecutive terms.

Gandhi is certified in commercial real estate law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. He is a member of the Texas State Bar and the Fort Bend Bar Association.

“I am grateful to Governor Abbott, the Texas Senate and members of the House for placing their trust in me,” Gandhi said in a statement. “This appointment is a real moment of honor for me and for my family. I have been blessed to be able to serve my city of Sugar Land, and look forward to doing the same for the great state of Texas.

Gandhi also served as vice president of the Arc of Fort Bend and a board member of the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce and Fort Bend Child Advocates. He holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Houston Baptist University and a Juris Doctor from South Texas College of Law.
