Director Chuck McCormick has been a resident of Lost Creek since moving to Austin from Washington D.C., in 1997 to head the local FBI Office. Chuck is married to Ann Hutchison, the founder and now retired Director of the Victim Services Program of the Austin Police Dept. They have two grown daughters, Jessica and Catherine, both married. Jessica lives in Lost Creek and Catherine lives in north Austin.
A 30 year veteran of the FBI, Chuck joined the Bureau after serving in the United States Army from 1967-1970. A Vietnam veteran, Chuck was honorably discharged as a Staff Sergeant E-6 Drill Sergeant, skills which he believes will be of value on the MUD Board.
After retiring from the FBI, Chuck started the Austin Institute for Strategic Consulting Solutions, LLC., and for 14 years as CEO, has provided counter-terrorism and emergency management consulting and asymmetric threat analysis to the intelligence community, government officials, law enforcement, military, and mental health professionals from the U.S. and around the world. Chuck has also served on Texas Governor Perry's staff as Deputy Director of Homeland Security for the State of Texas; was an adjunct instructor at Texas A&M University teaching WMD Incident Management/Unified Command; served as the Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection Program Manager and Provost Marshal for the Texas Military Forces, overseeing Border Security intelligence and security measures at all 124 National Guard Armories throughout Texas.
Chuck also has experience with community activities, having served as the president of a Homeowners Association in California for four years. Prior to being elected to the MUD Board Chuck and his wife Ann served as the Liaison between the LCNA and the MUD Board for one year. Chuck is looking forward to bringing all of his skills and experience at problem solving and communicating with residents to his new position, with the goal of preserving the beauty, serenity, and quality of life we all enjoy in Lost Creek.
