Following his mayoralty, Leppert was a candidate for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in 2012.

Leppert’s public career followed 30 years in the private sector, working in the construction, homebuilding, real estate, and financial services industries. During his tenure as CEO from 1999 to 2006, The Turner Corporation’s revenues grew from $4 billion to nearly $9 billion and total returns increased significantly. He led the entry into new markets and initiated Turner University, an innovative internal, online training program for its 7,000 plus employees.

Prior to Turner, Leppert held a number of business leadership positions, including vice chairman of Pacific Century Financial Corporation and its major subsidiary, the Bank of Hawaii, and president and CEO of Castle & Cooke Properties, Inc., both in Honolulu, HI, and a national partner at Trammell Crow Company. He began his career at McKinsey & Co., where he was elected a principal of the firm.

Leppert was appointed by President Reagan as a White House Fellow in 1984. He served as executive assistant to the deputy secretary of the treasury and a member of the staff of The White House’s Office of Policy Development.

He holds an M.B.A. with Distinction from the Harvard Business School and a bachelor’s in liberal arts from Claremont McKenna College.

He has been an active leader in civic and community organizations, including chairing the Greater Dallas Regional Chamber, the Hawaii Business Roundtable and the Bishop Museum. He has served on the boards of Baylor Healthcare System, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Dallas Citizens Council, Dallas Zoological Society, and the National Building Museum, among others.

He has been actively involved in a wide range of educational institutions ranging from chairing the West Dallas Community School, an acclaimed K-8 school in one of the lowest income areas of the nation, to serving on the boards of the Episcopal School of Dallas, Claremont McKenna College, and Harvard Business School alumni.
