Mayor Appoints Weingart to Port SA Board of Directors
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS – Mayor Phil Hardberger has named Dan Weingart as his appointee to serve on the Port San Antonio Board of Directors. This will be the first stint on the Port Board for Mr. Weingart.
Mr. Weingart brings a very strong resume to his Port San Antonio Board of Directors post. He is CEO of The Alisam Group, a San Antonio-based company doing business in the Americas (United States, Canada, Mexico, Central and South America and the Caribbean basin). He is known for successfully leading multi-national teams in multicultural and entrepreneurial settings, as well as negotiating strategic partnerships on an international level.
Mr. Weingart first began his international experience with the Coca-Cola Company when he was recruited to enter a specialized training program for international service associates (expatriates). It was with Coca-Cola that he successfully completed a two-year foreign assignment, focusing on key account management and retail execution.
Mr. Weingart then moved on to Tampico Beverages in 2000 where he began as a Vice President for International Marketing. He quickly moved up to positions of Vice President of Andean, Caribbean and Central America Regions; Senior Vice President of North Latin America Division; and ultimately as Executive Vice President – International in 2005.
In 2006 Mr. Weingart became Director of World-Wide Sales with Genesis Today, the fastest growing nutritional supplements company in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. In addition to this position, he is also the President and Chief Executive Officer of The Alisam Group where he leads all operational, sales, marketing and financial functions for a $27 million multi-national logistics and sales company.
Besides the Port Authority, he currently also serves as the Vice President of Fundraising for Congregation Agudas Achim; is a former board member of the Eleanor Kolitz Academy; is a member of the World Affairs Council; and is a guest lecturer in the MBA program at Incarnate Word University.
The fact that Mr. Weingart was appointed by Mayor Hardberger, who has been instrumental in San Antonio’s recent and rapid progress, is significant. Additionally, Mr. Weingart’s extensive experience in the international business realm bodes well for his desire to help with Port San Antonio.
