Chamber Hosts the Dallas Fed’s Roberto Coronado at Downtown Office for Evening Reception

On June 4, the Federal Reserve Bank announced Roberto Coronado’s appointment as the senior officer in charge of the Dallas Fed’s San Antonio Branch. Coronado currently serves as senior vice president in charge of the Bank’s El Paso Branch, which he will continue to oversee. He will also continue to serve as a senior economist and member of the regional group of the Bank’s Research Department.

On the evening of July 28, your San Antonio Chamber of Commerce was proud to host Roberto Coronado for a welcome reception at the Chamber. It was a wonderful opportunity for the Chamber and San Antonio business leaders to give the new senior officer a warm welcome to the Alamo City.

In opening remarks from our CEO and President Richard Perez, he encouraged the audience to continue their remarkable efforts of coming together and pushing forward in the midst of an ever-changing economy. “The way we continue to move forward is as one city,” he said.

Following the warm welcome by Perez, Coronado thanked those gathered for their time and support as he takes on this new position. “You opened your arms and said, ‘Welcome to San Antonio. How can we help?’” said Coronado. “That’s when you know you’re in the right place.”

Coronado joined the Dallas Fed in 2001. He has written articles for various Federal Reserve Publications and academic journals in both the United States and Mexico. His research focuses on issues pertaining to the Mexican economy, U.S.–Mexico economic integration, and border issues. He serves as a director for the Texas Lyceum and as a board member for Texas 2036. He obtained his Ph.D. in economics from the University of Houston and holds a B.B.A. in accounting and economics and an M.S. in economics from the University of Texas at El Paso.

As Coronado brings his extensive experience and knowledge to San Antonio, the Chamber is eager to work alongside this new senior officer and alongside the Dallas Federal Reserve Bank to drive growth and success in our beautiful city.

We would like to give special thanks to our event sponsors, Valero, CW Interests, Lift Fund, and Frost Bank for their invested interest in the San Antonio business community.
