Project Manager, Mitchell Historic Properties


Elected to the Board in 2017

Current Term Expires in 2019



Standing behind the counter of a local Austin bakery, Steven Creitz could not have dreamed of the diverse and colorful career path that he was just embarking on. Having grown up in a military family with assignments across the globe, Creitz had a unique ability to see the potential in any organization he was involved with.

He quickly became a business partner of the bakery that established his career and shortly after began a new business concept in the ’90s of a food carryout service that still operates today. He then moved on to the Original HEB Central Market where his vision and creativity helped establish the company’s catering business.

After 16 years in the foodservice industry, Creitz joined GPM, Inc, which would eventually become Mitchell Historic Properties, and traveled between offices in Austin and Galveston. After falling in love with the authenticity of Galveston, Creitz quickly made the decision to become an Island resident. 16 years later, Creitz spends his days as Project Manager for Mitchell Historic Properties, a role in which has allowed him the opportunity to serve the community by helping to preserve the legacy of the late George P. Mitchell.

He currently serves on the Galveston Park Board of Trustees, the East End Lagoon Advisory Committee, the Finance Committee for the Park Board, the Parks & Amenities Committee, the Downtown Holiday Lighting Committee, and the Vision Galveston Steering Committee. He has previously served on the Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, the ITC Intermodal Transportation Committee, and Access Care of Coastal Texas Board.

With each project Creitz manages, he is able to ensure that the Mitchell Family’s commitment to the overall success and revitalization of The Strand District, Pier 21 and Galveston Island, is carried out and that the authenticity of the Island is never compromised.
