Michael W. Lackey, P.E. is Principal of Lackey de Carvajal Cx (LCCx), which is an Energy Efficiency Engineering firm. As a LEED Accredited Professional, Lackey verifies that complex building systems perform as intended to achieve energy and water efficiency, reduce CO2 emissions and improve indoor environmental quality.

Lackey is also a River Authority-appointed Board Member of the San Antonio River Foundation where he recently served as Chairman. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization created by SARA to provide amenities and enhancements along the San Antonio River and its tributaries not funded by public monies. To date, its focus has largely been on providing privately funded art installations and betterments along the San Antonio River Improvements Projects. Additionally, Lackey served on the San Antonio Water System board of trustees from 2001 to 2009 prior to being elected to the River Authority board in 2009.

A member of the Sons of the Republic of Texas (SRT), Lackey traces his lineage to Jose Luis Carvajal who inherited land out of the Andres Hernandez grant at the confluence of the Cibolo Creek and the San Antonio River. The spot was known as Carvajal Crossing because it had a firm river bottom for the ox carts traveling the Camino Real between San Antonio and Goliad.

Lackey is a graduate of Central Catholic High School. He holds a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from Texas A&M University and an M.B.A. from the University of Houston.
