Shaun has more than 30 years of experience in the financial services industry. His extensive background includes multiple areas of Banking including: Commercial/Corporate Banking, Commercial Real Estate, Retail Banking, Private Banking, Investment Management and Fiduciary Services.
During our 2017 Gala, Shaun presented his theme for the upcoming year – Transformational Collaboration – which involves the Chamber working in concert with several organizations, including the City and County, the San Antonio Economic Development Foundation, other Chambers of Commerce, the Military, and many others to ensure we are collectively designing the framework to build a solid foundation for San Antonio’s future.

These priorities include continuing to work on the recommendations from the Chamber’s 2016 Good to Great to Global initiative; bringing a focus to hiring individuals with unique capabilities; advocating for Military mission growth and sustainment; maintaining our role as a key community for cybersecurity; and advocating for local, state, and federal policies that support economic growth for San Antonio.
