Byron L Liles


Byron has spent his entire career in the nonprofit sector, serving in multiple roles within a fundraising program. Before joining The University of Texas at Austin, Byron oversaw gift planning efforts for Ducks Unlimited in its Southern and Great Plains regions, raising significant funds for wetlands and waterfowl conservation. Byron is experienced in asset-based giving, skilled at working with attorneys and advisors, and has a proven track record of securing both current and deferred gifts. Often calling himself a philanthropic sherpa, his objective is to allow donors to create the most lasting and dynamic philanthropic impact as efficiently as possible. 

Byron received his degree from the University of Memphis with concentrations in Nonprofit Development and Administration, along with Organizational Leadership, and has attained a Chartered Advisor of Philanthropy® designation through the American College of Financial Services. Outside of the office, Byron and his better half enjoy exploring Austin and spending time with their four (large) rescue dogs.
