In the Spotlight
2014-15 Member of the Year
NAWBO-SA Member Since 1997
Lynn Weirich, President
Business Financial Group
Nancy Victor had the great privilege as her final act as President of announcing the Member of the Year, Lynn Weirich. I look up to you for so many reasons. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for preparing me for the White House meeting, taking over as Public Policy Director when I became President even though you’d already donated thousands of hours to our organization as a founding member and Past President. Thank you for being who you are and giving so much to NAWBO San Antonio.
Lynn Weirich, Shareholder and President of Business Financial Group (BFG), has worked in the insurance and investment industry since 1983. In 1998, she co-founded BFG, which provides financial planning and wealth management services to individuals, and employee benefit services, corporate retirement plans and business risk management to small and medium sized business across many states. With over 30 employees, BFG serves roughly 3,700 companies and individuals through its headquarters in San Antonio, Texas.
Lynn is a founding member of the San Antonio Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners. In September of 1996, Dixie Kingston & Lynn Weirich attended a National NAWBO Conference as a result of their affiliation as brokers of MassMutual, a National Corporate Sponsor at that time. At the conference, they met Patricia Stout who was a National NAWBO member at large from San Antonio.
Impressed by the National organization, Pat, Lynn, and Dixie decided to network with other women business owners in San Antonio to determine the level of interest in forming a local Chapter. Invitations were mailed to over 400 women business owners in the area to attend an informational meeting hosted by Caryn Hasslocher at the Tower of Americas. By early 1997, 30 members had joined the National Association and the San Antonio Chapter was born. Lynn served as the chapter’s third president from July 2000 to June 2001, and has been instrumental in developing many ‘best practices’ for the San Antonio chapter including our current Fostering the Entrepreneurial Dream program.
Lynn is an NAWBO San Antonio Executive Member Partner (EMP) — an exclusive group of NAWBO members who are recognized among the most successful women-owned businesses in San Antonio. Lynn says: “Our NAWBO-SA Executive Member Partnership provides Business Financial Group with heightened exposure within the organization as well as more focused interaction with peers of similarly sized companies. It allows me to share ideas on meeting the unique needs and opportunities of larger companies. The EMP is my unofficial – but immensely valuable - board of directors.”
NAWBO-SA appreciates all you do for the
San Antonio Chapter!
NAWBO-SA Partner since 2004
