Garry Allen Weber

Center for BrainHealth

The stock market provided its share of excitement in the first quarter of 2018, but Garry Weber, the CEO of Weber Financial Inc., has seen it all before. With decades of experience in the financial services industry, the former Dallas County judge, who also served on the Dallas City Council, has a long history of investing his time and money in community service and philanthropic efforts. “Garry has always been a quiet leader, a force in our city. He’s an adventurer who wanted to be part of the adventure to advance brain health research,” said Dr. Sandra Bond Chapman, founder and chief director of Center for BrainHealth. “He’s a thought leader, a real mentor.” Judge Weber joined the Brain Performance Institute building campaign after getting involved with the center’s work with warriors. Veteran stories had inspired him to support research and the center’s warrior training program — where military veterans and active-duty service members and spouses engage in cognitive training. As part of his advocacy for brain health awareness, Garry Weber has participated in a BrainHealth® Index, a unique assessment that provides a benchmark of cognitive performance and promotes personalized recommendations to enhance brain performance. “I’m not retired, and still very active in investments. You gotta be sharp in this business,” he explained. Judge Weber also nurtures his brain health through spending time outdoors when the markets are closed. He has a commitment to wildlife that he lives out, in part, through board commitments to the Whale Trust Advisory and National Geographic Society. "I’m impressed with the work and how much attention brain research seems to be getting in a short period,” said Judge Weber. “I’ve talked to many people about the importance of brain health and how it’s often a neglected part of overall health and wellness."CONTACT Stephanie Hoefken 972.883.3221 stephanie.hoefken@utdallas.eduABOUT CENTER FOR BRAINHEALTH Center for BrainHealth®, part of The University of Texas at Dallas, is a translational research institute committed to enhancing, preserving, and restoring brain health across the lifespan.
