Seth H. Lincoln

Seth has spent 20 years as a chief executive officer and chief operating officer in a variety of industries, including hotels, commercial land development and construction, homebuilding and food service distribution. After graduating from the School of Hotel Administration, he began his professional career in the hotel industry working with Mariner Corporation out of Houston and the Flatley Company in Framingham, Massachusetts. He then ventured into the construction industry, acting as Controller and Chief Financial Officer for two different companies.

After these experiences, he determined to pursue his own entrepreneurial passions. Starting his first company in 1987 building homes in the Houston market, the business expanded so that Hometown Concepts, Inc., under several trade names, was building homes in a three state area. In 1990, he founded Land & Home, Inc., a holding company for a variety of businesses. It provides financial investment in and managerial consulting to different ventures and partnerships.

Seth’s personal philosophy has always been integrated into his business practice. Giving priority to youth and education, he has initiated and led several projects and held positions on many non-profit boards. Seth and his wife Annette’s most challenging and rewarding project was the planning and creation of Holy Trinity Episcopal School of Greater Houston, a college preparatory level school for an underserved area of the city. He still serves on the school’s Board.

Seth, Annette and their two sons, Sam (Cornell ‘10) and Josh (Texas A & M ‘13) live in Humble, Texas. Spending their summers together on Cape Cod with family and friends, the family passion is being on the water and sport fishing. Both boys are pursuing environmental degrees based on their appreciation of the outdoors.

“Although I appreciate the success of work and the honor of being recognized, I would like to recognize that it is faith, family and friends that have embodied those opportunities.”
