Wade Chappell has a great track record as an entrepreneur, business operator, and community volunteer. He is one of those individuals that knows tons of people – and he knows how to find facts, gather information, and make things happen.

Wade is a Fort Worth native and, like both of his parents, a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin. He is the co-founder and owner of Pearl Snap Kolaches which he and a partner established in 2015. The Pearl Snap name comes from the famous pearl snap button, western style shirts so well-known across Texas.

Until recently, he was engaged as the Executive Director of Camp Bowie District, Inc., a non-profit that operates a Public Improvement District (PID) under a community board of directors on behalf of the City of Fort Worth.

Prior to opening Pearl Snap Kolaches, Wade worked in securities with San Antonio-based Ehrenberg Chesler Investment Bankers facilitating financing for start-up companies as well as conventional financing for real estate projects.

Before joining Ehrenberg Chesler, Wade was a Registered Landman in the Barnett Shale Region for Finley Resources, Inc. His work at Finley during the height of the Barnett play allowed Wade to become involved with the City of Fort Worth as a ‘facilitator’ for well site permitting, leasing, pipeline rights-of-way, and purchasing water for hydraulic fracturing.

Wade’s six-years of service on Fort Worth’s Residential Board of Adjustment enabled him in developing a strong working knowledge along with critical insight as to the City’s development processes and its staff culture. As a result, Wade can provide clients confident advice on site selection, strategy, and project implementation needed to gain approval on important zoning and/or variance applications. He is currently an alternate on the Plan Commission of the City of Fort Worth.

He also serves on the boards of the Presbyterian Night Shelter, Streams & Valleys, Cross Timbers Quail Coalition, and Reel Recovery, a national non-profit organization that conducts free fly-fishing retreats for men living with all forms of cancer.

Additionally, Wade previously volunteered with the Day Resource Center for the Homeless and, for more than ten years, he was a member of the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo Greeting Committee.

Wade is a strong supporter of non-profit organizations in our community. During the Covid-19 Pandemic, Wade has repeatedly donated food to the first responders taking care of us during a most difficult period of time.

Wade and his wife, Blair, have two children. Wade is an Elder at First Presbyterian Church in Fort Worth.
