Texas Industries appointed Dorothy C. Weaver and John D. Baker II to fill two vacancies on its board of directors. Their term of office will expire in 2012.

Baker is the executive chairman of Patriot Transportation Holding and former president and CEO of Florida Rock Industries. He has extensive experience in the building materials industry, serving 33 years with Florida Rock Industries. Baker serves on the board of directors for Wells Fargo & Co. along with several other corporations and nonprofit organizations. He has also been active on several school boards as both trustee and chairman.

"John is a respected leader in the U.S. building materials industry. The wisdom gained through his long tenure in our industry, coupled with significant business insight, will certainly make a positive difference for TXI," says TXI Chairman Bob Rogers.

Weaver is chairman and CEO of Collins Capital Investments, a position she's held for 15 years. Weaver is the former chairman of the board of the Federal Reserve Bank of Miami. A current Director for Austin Industries, she has served as chairman of the Governor's Council of Economic Advisors for the State of Florida. Weaver also serves on a number of charitable organizations including Miami Partners for Progress, a group of tri-ethnic business, professional and civic leaders.

"Dorothy's wide-ranging economic, financial and industry experience will bring a tremendous amount of knowledge to TXI's Board. TXI will be well-served by her strong leadership skills," Rogers says.

The shareholders also re-elected Rogers, Mel G. Brekhus and Ronald G. Steinhart as directors for terms that expire in 2011.
