John Moores
Bellaire High School

Co-founded BMC Software, Founded Peregrine Systems in California, Owner of the San Diego Padres


Moores was raised in Corpus Christi, Texas and grew up poor. He left Texas A&M University before graduating and became a programmer for IBM. Later, he received a BS degree in economics and law degree from the University of Houston. Moores considers law school "a boneheaded move" since he never wanted to practice law.

He co-founded BMC Software in Texas in 1980 and founded Peregrine Systems in California in 1981. He also founded Neon Systems and JMI Equity. In 1994 Moores purchased the San Diego Padres professional baseball team from Tom Werner
