Greater San Marcos Partnership adds key personnel


The Greater San Marcos Partnership (GSMP) recently added personnel to its rosters with new Vice President of Business Attraction Mike Kamerlander and new GSMP Board of Directors member Sandra Mauldin.

Kamerlander was Director of Business Retention and Expansion with the Greater Austin Chamber for over two years. His responsibilities for GSMP include new business development with recruitment marketing trips, strategic inquiry, corporate site selection visits, economic diversification efforts and more.

Said Amy Madison, President/CEO for GSMP, “Mike is well acquainted with our region and will hit the ground running in San Marcos.  He is already familiar with our staff and many key stakeholders in Hays and Caldwell. We look forward to having a complete team with his arrival.”

Kamerlander is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a bachelor’s degree in government with an emphasis on business administration.

Mauldin, a veteran of economic development and main street programs, has been the Economic Development Director  for Lockhart Development Corporation for the past twelve years.  She is Secretary for the Lockhart Industrial Foundation and is Chair of the Caldwell County Development Corporation as well.

“Sandra has been a significant asset to the GSMP since inception. At that time she was a fervent supporter of the Partnership representing Caldwell County and the City of Lockhart, allowing us to expand and create a unique and robust two county, seven-city alliance,”  said Madison.

Lockhart is positioned, with the opening of the southern leg of SH130 in October of 2012, to be a major economic development ally in the region, a fact that plays to Mauldin’s expertise.

The GSMP is a non-profict Texas partnership of public and private investors in Hays and Caldwell counties. Its stated focus is directing future growth and positioning the region for a wider diversity of quality jobs with higher wages.
