Roger Gault

At the University of Texas at Dallas’ Center for BrainHealth, Roger Gault and David Jacobs are joining the Advisory Board.

Gault will replace Ka Cotter’s role as advisory board chair and Jacobs will take over for Eric Bennett as vice-chair. The 100-plus member board said the two new appointments are well-suited for their jobs.

Gault is currently president of his own commercial real estate company, Gault Company. He has more than 35 years in the industry, having developed, invested in, or owned properties throughout the U.S.

“I am honored and proud to serve the Center for BrainHealth and support the much-needed research they are doing to help preserve and restore brain health,” Gault said. “As chair of the advisory board, it is my hope that I can help further their mission and bring more awareness to the many programs and services the Center offers to help empower people of all ages to unlock their brain potential.”

Jacobs is one of the founding partners at E2M Partners, and served as the company’s chief financial officer, chief compliance officer, and member of the investment committee before retiring. He is now an investor, consultant, and business advisor.

“My wife Cher and I have been members of the advisory board of the Center for BrainHealth for 10 years. During that time we have witnessed firsthand the Center’s outstanding scientific research and advancements in education related to the brain,” Jacobs said. “With the opening of the Center’s Brain Performance Institute, BrainHealth has had and will continue to have an incredible opportunity to advance its mission of nurturing and ensuring healthy brains for all people everywhere.”
