Perschbach named Port San Antonio CEO

Port San Antonio’s board of directors on Wednesday approved attorney and aerospace enthusiast Jim Perschbach as president and CEO.

Perschbach was named interim CEO March 28, about a week after previous CEO Roland Mower resigned under pressure from the board.

The board’s resolution authorizes negotiation and execution of contract terms to include salary. It passed 9-2 with board members Marc Whyte and Dan Weingart voting against it.

Perschbach, 47, joined the port in October 2014 as executive vice president of business development. He was previously a partner at Bracewell & Guliani, specializing in industries including aerospace and advanced manufacturing.
