The City of Schertz is excited to announce the appointment of Scott Wayman as its new Executive Director of Economic Development. Wayman brings over 20 years of extensive knowledge and expertise in economic development and local government and will bring tremendous value to the Schertz community.
Wayman has worked in the San Antonio region for 37 years, first starting out as a police officer for the City of Live Oak and going on to serve as Assistant City Manager and City Manager of Live Oak. He finished up the first part of his career with the City of Live Oak in 2022 and worked for a year in retirement, managing the Bulverde-Spring Branch Economic Development Foundation. He is married to his wife Diane and has a daughter who has followed him into the City Management profession.
Wayman commented, “Schertz is the reason that I came to Texas. My aunt owned a business on FM 78 for many years and I would come down and visit as a kid. Working in the northeast area of San Antonio, Schertz has always been the big brother to the region, and I am excited to have the opportunity to work with the city’s leadership on future developments.”
In his new role, Wayman will be responsible for leading the efforts to attract new businesses to Schertz, supporting the growth and expansion of existing businesses, and creating job opportunities in the community. He will work closely with city leaders, community partners, and stakeholders to help our community achieve economic development goals.
