The Bank was recognized and honored on Thursday, June 18 at the Texas Association of Business virtual awards presentation.  This is the twelfth consecutive year for Austin Bank to receive this honor.

The awards program was created in 2006 and is a project of Texas Monthly, the Texas Association of Business (TAB), the Texas State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management (TSC-SHRM) and Best Companies Group.

“Austin Bank is especially proud to receive this honor because it came from the input of our employees,” said Jeff Austin III, Vice Chairman of the Board.

“The success of our Bank has been built by a wonderful team of dedicated, professional employees.  Our employees are the face of Austin Bank not only within the Bank, going the extra mile to serve our customers, but also out in our communities helping others.  To support our employees and their vital contributions, it is our goal to provide the best possible workplace environment,” said Austin.  “Every employee is encouraged to continue learning and developing their career; and to become involved in their local community in order to make the best place to work also the best to live and the best place to bank.”
