Truth in Texas Banking. That’s what we’re about. Founded in 2010, we are one of the ten largest banks headquartered in the state of Texas. We became a publicly traded company in 2014 and in 2020 we were listed on Fortune’s 100 Fastest Growing Companies. Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, we’ve built a bank forever rooted in truth, transparency, and uncompromising integrity.
We know our strongest asset is the passion, authenticity, and talent of our people. We focus on the growth and development of each team member to unlock potential to “Be Your True Self.” Our “True You” culture is made up of five pillars:
1. Be Mindful
2. Be Healthy
3. Be Better
4. Be Prosperous
5. Be Faithful
With this as our foundation, we’ve built a bank of people who are transparent, tell the truth, and act with integrity. We unite together in common purpose – caring deeply for our clients and communities, communicating openly with each other, and treating everyone with respect.
