Victor Miramontes

Founding Partner
CitiView, Cisneros Miramontes and SAT Automotive Technologies

Over the past twenty years Victor Miramontes, a founding partner of CityView, Cisneros Miramontes, and SAT Automotive Technologies, has been responsible for each company’s initial conceptualization, formation, funding, and start of operations. Mr. Miramontes is a member of each entity’s governance board of directors, serves on the real estate company’s various investment committees and is the chairman of the automotive company.  He is currently charged with identifying projects, structuring new projects and developing an investor base for each.

Immediately prior to his teaming up with Mr. Henry Cisneros in 2000 to form American CityVista and then CityView, Mr. Miramontes was the CEO of the North American Development Bank, an international development bank (“NADB”). NADB provides key infrastructure including water, wastewater treatment, transportation and energy projects in the US and Mexican border urban communities. He was the newly formed institution’s first employee in 1994 and was responsible for the bank’s initial operations, policy formation, capitalization, programs, and projects. Policies and programs initiated by Mr. Miramontes have provided billions in new investments and continue to provide project funding, critical system management assistance and training for key border utility professionals.

Prior to his tenure at the NADB, Mr. Miramontes had worked with multiple institutions focusing primarily on the establishment of new projects, divisions, and business ventures.  Prior to Mr. Cisneros’ departure in the early 90’s from San Antonio to become the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Mr. Miramontes and Mr. Cisneros had established Cisneros Asset Management Company, a successful institutional fixed income money management company. In addition, he has worked with La Quinta Motor Inns (real estate), Paine Webber (project finance), Laredo National Bank (private equity and automotive) and Wells Fargo Bank (corporate clients) in project development/finance, corporate money management, and municipal finance. He is currently on the board of directors for Whole Child International and is active in a variety of local San Antonio initiatives.
