After serving as the 2017 Chair Elect, our 2018 Chairman of the Board Shaun Kennedy, is embracing his role as the new leader of the Chamber’s team.

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.

He also shared his priorities for the Chamber, which will result in growth and development that generates jobs and economic prosperity for our community. 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.

About the author:

I took early retirement in 1995 from Kodak and I have been in the real estate business since then. During my Kodak career my family lived in six states and we owned thirteen homes. I held positions as Food Trade Manager, Attractions Manager for Florida, Director of Sales Promotion, National Account Manager to HEB Grocery Company and National Sales Manager – US Military – Worldwide. In the twelve years since I retired from Kodak, I’ve been in the real estate business. My entry into the business was through two major agencies; one a local upscale boutique company and the other a very large local operation of a national franchise. I found both (plus most others in the business) to be more oriented towards gross sales and less towards taking care of the needs of the consumer. As a result, I formed my own company. I have three agents besides myself in the company and two staff personnel. Approximately ninety percent of our business comes from direct referrals plus we represent all of the relocating employees for three corporations. Each week I host the area real estate show, Real Estate Focus, on NewsTalk 930 KLUP, Saturdays at 11:00am. The show also streams live on my web site , http://www.HeartofTexasRealty.com and on http://www.KLUP.com. In addition, Bjorn Dybdahl, owner of Bjorn’s Home Entertainment, http://www.Bjorns.com and I host the San Antonio Movers and Shakers Show that airs at 10:00 am each Saturday from the same station and web sites. The real estate show deals with area real estate information and the SA Movers and Shakers show honors the education, business, civic, and public leaders who keep the entrepreneurial spirit alive in our city.
