Rob Lippincott '67 Named Tau Man of the Year
Texas Kappa Sigma Educational Foundation has chosen Rob Lippincott '67 as Kappa Sigma Tau Man of the Year for 2015. Lippincott will be honored on November 7 for his exceptional contributions to the Tau Chapter.
"Rob incorporates all that Kappa Sigma stands for," said Tito Beveridge '81. "He is a man of zeal, yet humble, a great friend to all, a loving family man with a beautiful wife, and a successful businessman. I'm proud to call him my friend."
Lippincott and his wife, Cathy, created Guero's Taco Bar in 1986, opening the original location on East Oltorf Avenue and then moving nine years later to their current location on South Congress Avenue. Inspired by the great cantinas of old-world Mexico, Guero's is beloved by locals and known for its authentic specialty dishes, oak garden live music venue, and its many celebrity sightings.
One of Austin's most successful restaurants, Guero's became the anchor for the revitalization of South Congress Avenue, which was spearheaded by Lippincott.
"Rob personifies the Tau spirit of exceptionalism in all he has accomplished--not the least of which was having the good fortune to unite with his Life & Soul Mate, Cathy," said Joe Longley '63. "Together they have created and established the iconic SoCo (South Congress) culture of Austin South-of-the-River that enriches the lives of all who visit."
Lippincott was the 2013 recipient of the Frank C. Erwin, Jr. Award, chosen by the Tau Chapter for his many years of generous support and inspiration. As a Kappa Sigma undergraduate, he served as Tau Chapter Grand Master in the spring of 1970.
Rob and Cathy have two daughters, Bette and Lyle, both who are actively involved in the family business.
