Bio of Rotarian Angie Jimenez
Angie (Angel F.) Jimenez is a native of Argentina. He attended Military School, graduating as a Second Lieutenant, then attended Law School before immigrating to New York in 1955, where he began a career in international shipping.
He moved to Houston in 1965 and founded his own freight forwarding company, McLean Cargo, in 1970. Angie built it into one of the largest minority-owned U.S. companies. He sold the company in 2008 to a freight forwarder by the name of Jim Crane. Probably better known to most as the owner of the Houston Astro’s.
Angie joined the Rotary Club of Houston (RCOH) in 2002. He became its Centennial President when the club celebrated its 100th anniversary (1912-2012). He has held numerous positions in his club and in District 5890 since 2004. He presently serves as the Director of International Services for our District.
Because of his international shipping experience, Angie has led and participated in many international projects. He has devoted a great deal of time and treasure to the Rotary Books for the World project, where he serves as COO. Partnering with other Rotarians, Rotary Books for the World has shipped over 400 – 40-foot ocean-freight containers to Africa and other third world countries!
Angie has served on numerous Boards. An avid reader with a passionate interest in printing, Angie served as Chairman of the Board of the Museum of Printing of Houston. He continues to serve on the Board’s Executive Committee
