He began his business career in the 1970s after serving in the U.S. Air Force, the Central Intelligence Agency and the U.S. State Department. He founded Falcon Seaboard, a Texas-based diversified energy and investments company. Dewhurst is also a rancher and a champion cutting horse rider. He was inducted into the Texas Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame in 2009.
