San Antonio (Bexar County) – The Brooks Board of Directors has elected Steven Goldberg, a retired USAA executive, to serve as its new chairman.

Goldberg was twice appointed to the board by newly elected mayor of San Antonio Ron Nirenberg, while in his capacity as Councilman for District 8.


Goldberg previously served as treasurer and chair of the Finance Committee, guiding Brooks through the financing and development of major projects such as The Kennedy and Aviator apartment communities, the Kennedy Hill Road improvement project, The Greenline linear park, the Embassy Suites Hotel & Spa, and Brooks’ own $54.9 million bond for infrastructure.

“Steve’s dedication to Brooks’ mission, his financial expertise, attention to detail, and his ability to see the long game have been critical to this community’s success over the past several years,” said Brooks President & CEO Leo Gomez. “We are fortunate that Steve is stepping up to lead this board and share with Brooks his time, talent, financial acumen and strategic thinking.”

Goldberg retired as managing director for the global reinsurance broker, Aon Benfield, where he was responsible for overseeing analytic capabilities as well as consulting directly with clients. A Fellow of the Casualty Actuarial Society, Goldberg previously served almost 30 years with USAA, where he held the position of senior vice president of property & casualty underwriting and pricing.

"Serving on the Brooks board has been one of the most challenging, yet fulfilling, experiences in my life,” said Goldberg. “The team we have in place on the board is comprised of a diverse group of community leaders who are passionate in the mission of Brooks to attract high-paying jobs.”

Goldberg replaces Manuel Villa, who has served as chair since 2015. Villa will continue to serve on the board representing District 6 until his replacement is appointed.

The Brooks Board of Directors also elected Michelle R. Krupa to serve another term as the vice chair. Krupa has served on the Brooks Board of Directors since September 2013, on both the Planning and Development Committee and the Finance committee, after being appointed by District 3 Councilwoman Rebecca J. Viagran.

Goldberg and Krupa will serve for two-year terms beginning September 1, 2017.
