For Brian Dale, Banking Texas Style is a promise that comes with a solemn responsibility.
“To me, being a Texan means holding strong to your convictions and values, operating in integrity and being a person who treats others fairly and with respect,” he said. “Being a Texan comes with a great pride and respect for our fellow Texans. I believe Banking Texas Style means that we bring those qualities into our business and relationships with clients.”
As North Texas Market President, Dale seizes every opportunity to live up to those ideals, both in his professional and personal life.
“I always set my own personal goals, so those are important to me, but it's also important to me to help our team meet their goals as well,” he said. “We go above anyone else to make each customer feel valued by creating a relationship that is open and honest and we do our best to help each client with their own unique needs.”
