The branch will provide an extensive array of consumer and commercial products and services, including treasury management services.

We look forward to the groundbreaking ceremony on the grounds of our new branch location. We are a community-focused financial institution and pride ourselves on exceeds-expectations customer service and community involvement. Our relationship-based banking philosophy will allow us to meet the personal and business banking needs of Dallas.
