Marilu Reyna, Executive Vice President – Public Affairs and Communications of the BCFS System, has been appointed to serve on the board of directors for Port San Antonio.
The former Kelly Air Force Base is a leading example of base redevelopment and was named the Base Redevelopment Community of the Year by the Association of Defense Communities in 2010. Most recently, it was named Business of the Year by the San Antonio Business Journal.
The 1,900-acre facility, situated just southwest of downtown San Antonio, is home to more than 80 tenants including leading global industries employing more than 13,000 people in the fields of aerospace, defense, energy, manufacturing and cyber security. It also serves as the headquarters for the U.S. Air Force Cyber Command.
This unique property is served by air, railway and highway transportation networks and generates over $5.6 billion in annual economic activity in the region.
Marilu was appointed to the post by City Councilwoman Rebecca Viagran for a two-year term.
“I am honored to have this opportunity to serve the community,” Marilu said. “Port San Antonio is a key part of our city’s economic infrastructure providing job growth and opportunities for business expansion.”
