IBC Executive Vice President Gerardo Schwebel

In this episode of Just This, I talk with Gerardo “Gerry” Schwebel, longtime head of international affairs for IBC Bank, which specializes in U.S. companies doing business in Mexico and Mexican companies doing business in the United States.

Schwebel was present at the signing of NAFTA in 1992 here in San Antonio and has closely monitored recent rounds of negotiations over updating the treaty. He just returned from Mexico City where he was one of the invited industry representatives who literally wait outside the doors behind which negotiations take place and offer instant responses to negotiators about proposed changes.
