Announcing SABOR’s New CEO

We are pleased to announce that Gilbert S. Gonzalez, formerly SABOR’s vice president of risk management and general counsel, has been named CEO for the organization.

Gilbert joined SABOR in 2012 as vice president of risk management and general counsel and more recently, he has served as interim CEO. During his time here, he has displayed an unwavering commitment and dedication to SABOR’s mission and vision. His knowledge of the community and his experience with SABOR make him uniquely qualified to lead the organization.

As SABOR’s general counsel, he provided legal guidance and advice to the association on legal matters, spanning corporate governance, human resources, contract negotiations, policies and procedures, and strategic planning. In this role, he also supervised the government affairs team, providing legal interpretation of existing and new legislation and representing the board’s interest at stakeholder meetings.

During his tenure as interim CEO, he worked alongside the Board of Directors and directed the staff in developing and deploying strategies to support and enhance the operations at the association. Under his leadership, SABOR strengthened its partnerships with city officials and other local leaders, bringing SABOR to the forefront and reinforcing its position as a leading voice for the real estate industry.

Prior to joining SABOR, Gilbert served as a staff attorney for the Bexar County Courts Administration and also worked as an assistant district attorney in the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office. He is a native San Antonian and holds a bachelor of arts degree and juris doctor from St. Mary’s University.

He is eager to jump into this new role and to work alongside the membership to build a stronger local community.
