Charles (“Chuck”) Bunch, USAF, Retired
Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer and Director of Military Affairs
San Antonio Chamber of Commerce

Chuck Bunch currently serves as the RP/6 Site Manager for the USO. As the USO-RP/6 Site Manager, he has been entrusted to steer an innovative transition program designed for guiding military families during their reintegration to civilian society. His program is also a vital piece to the USO’s Transition 360 Alliance with Stronger Families, Comfort Crew for Kids, and Hire Heroes USA. Prior to being selected to come aboard the USO, he was the Director of Military Relations for Red McCombs Toyota after honorably serving twenty one years in the United States Air Force. Under his leadership, he was able to construct the first ever Military department in the San Antonio automotive industry and create a benchmark for honorably serving the military.

Through his servant leadership, he has effectively collaborated and helped strengthen the bond between the military and local community. His body of work has served as another example of why San Antonio remains to be called Military City USA.

Chuck was born in Bossier City, Louisiana and grew up as a proud son of a retired United States Air Force veteran. He graduated from High School in Tullahoma, Tennessee. During his military tenure, Chuck had the privilege of earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Occupational Education (BSOE) from Wayland Baptist University and a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from Webster University.

He has been married to Kriesti Bunch since June 18, 1993, and they have a son, Jered Anthony.
