The Baylor College of Medicine Board of Trustees Wednesday added two new members – real estate executive David Dominy and former U.S. Rep. Jack Fields, now a public affairs consultant.

The appointments are effective June 1.

“Baylor College of Medicine is fortunate in having a board of trustees that is very involved in the College and committed to the community,” said Dr. Paul E. Klotman, president, CEO and executive dean. “Mr. Dominy and Congressman Fields are both leaders in their fields and will bring great talent and experience to the board. I look forward to working with them.”

Dominy, the managing director of JLL Houston’s Valuation and Advisory Services, is responsible for guiding the overall performance of the Houston practice. He also assists in targeting, recruiting and retaining valuation team members nationally. He is well acquainted with Baylor College of Medicine as a member of the Baylor’s President’s Circle since 2012. He began his real estate career in 1982 after graduating from Baylor University.

Fields, the CEO of Twenty-First Century Group Inc., a consulting firm, represented the 8th Congressional District of Texas in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1980 to 1996. He served as the chairman of the Subcommittee on Telecommunications and Finance, leading the effort to enact landmark legislation in 1996 to promote competition in all telecommunications-related industries. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Baylor University in 1974 and law degree from Baylor in 1977.
