Meet the 1st Vice Chair of the Board...
Being a member on any board should and does require work. This title and position is one of distinction and holds members to core ethics and morals. We understand all chambers differ, but keep reading to get to know the Alamo Black City Chamber of Commerce’s- 1st Vice Chair, Mrs. Sha-Rone V. Reyes.
Mrs. Sha-Rone Reyes, graduated from Mississippi University for Women with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Paralegal Studies with a Concentration in Business. Fourteen years ago she worked for the City of San Antonio in the Legal and Economic Development Department before transitioning to Brooks Development Authority. Mrs. Reyes initially began her career with Books City Base as their Contracts and Procurement Manager where she oversaw over $300 million in contracts covering multiple sectors to include: real estate, telecommunication, energy, construction, professional services and commodities . Her former role as Director of the EB-5 Program draws from her expertise as a Paralegal, contract management, grant writing, budgeting, regulatory compliance, inventory management, and project/program management. Mrs Reyes’ scope of responsibilities have included overseeing the BDA’s $55 million TIRZ Program and their $10 million Energy program.
Mrs. Reyes was responsible for securing foreign investors for multi-million dollar projects on the Brooks City Base campus as well as the Bexar County community. She was responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Brooks City Base Regional Center. Mrs. Reyes ensured all aspects of the Employment Based Five (EB-5) Program remains in compliance with all federal, state and local laws and maintains strong communication with the Brooks City Base Team to ensure proposed projects are in compliance with the objectives of the EB-5 Program. She directed, planned, organized, and controlled all local and international activities of the EB-5 Program. Additionally, Reyes also formulated and implemented all guidelines, procedures and policies with the purpose of ensuring compliance with legal and regulatory requirements and meeting the customers’ needs. Reyes developed goals and objectives that integrate with the United States Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS) criteria.
Mrs. Reyes, as 1st Vice Chair looks to be a huge asset to our Alamo City Black Chamber of Commerce’s Dr. Kirby. As the Chair, he must surround himself with proven success and we see that within Mrs. Reyes and her vast dynamic career and accomplishments.
As we continue to get to know each board member and what they bring to the table for the Black businesses who the chamber represents, join us next week to meet Mrs. Maria Williams. Mrs. Williams serves as 2nd Vice Chair under Dr. Kirby’s leadership.
