McKinney-based Independent Bank Group has been named to the list of the 2011 “Top 100 Places to Work in Dallas-Fort Worth” by the Dallas Morning News. The employees of companies that are nominated for this honor are surveyed in confidence by Workplace Dynamics and it is the responses of the employees that determine the outcome.
David Brooks, Chairman/CEO of Independent Bank said, “We are honored by the recognition. More importantly, we are very pleased at the responses of our employees to the survey. Our goal has always been to create a company filled with experienced and professional bankers who are excited to come to work every day and take exceptional care of our customers. We believe we hire the ‘best of the best’ and are committed to creating a culture where they can thrive and where they feel appreciated.”
Employees across the board feel like Independent Bank is headed in the right direction. They have confidence in their leadership and appreciate the fact that their bank operates by adhering to strong corporate and ethical values. Employees enjoy the team environment and feel that their opinions are heard and acted upon.
Independent Bank is a solid, well-managed community bank with assets in excess of $1.2 billion that has continued to expand into key markets and confidently lend and help businesses grow, even in challenging economic times. In addition, Independent Bank has contributed to the economic vitality of Texas communities by employing nearly 300 bankers in 26 full-service banking locations and at their Corporate Headquarters and two mortgage offices throughout the state.
Brooks concluded, “We attribute our growth and strength to the fact that we have always embraced the concept of being a relationship bank, not a transaction bank. We depend on great people who can be counted on to create those long-lasting and mutually-beneficial relationships with our clients. These values have allowed us to attract and retain the talented individuals that we have built our company and culture around. We are grateful that our employees feel the same way about the organization as we do about them.”
