Houston-based Texan Bank recently expanded its leadership team with the addition of Robert Raney as executive vice president–chief lending officer. He comes to Texan Bank with more than 17 years of commercial lending experience, most recently having worked at The Bank of River Oaks in Houston, where he was one of the original seven founding bankers. Raney holds a BSM degree in finance from the A.B. Freeman School of Business at Tulane University.
“I firmly believe that local community banks are uniquely suited to best serve the needs of clients by offering a more personalized banking relationship,” Raney says. “It wasn’t hard for me to get behind the Texan Bank mission because I agree with and understand the importance of doing the right thing, the right way.”
The recent leadership growth at Texan Bank also includes the election of Kelly Lovell to serve as an advisory director. She is executive vice president of United Valve, a board member and vice president of the Friendswood Independent School District Education Foundation and serves on the Board of Pilot Commissioners for Galveston County Ports.
Purchased in 2011 by Friendswood Capital Corp., Texan Bank operates four locations in Houston, Sugar Land, Clear Lake and Friendswood.
