Texas: Valley Banking Executive Garcia Celebrates 50th Anniversary with IBC Bank

Guillermo R. Garcia, executive vice president at Laredo-based IBC Bank received his 50-year pin in celebration of five decades of hard work and dedication at IBC Bank–Laredo. Garcia was recognized at the bank’s annual bonus and profit-sharing presentation on December 5.

Garcia began his career with IBC Bank in 1968 in the commercial loan department. In the 1980s, he moved to the bank’s international department, where he served clients on both sides of the border. His in-depth understanding of Mexican trade enables him to assist with the financial goals of clients in U.S. and global marketplaces. Today, Garcia is responsible for international customer relations. He also shares management responsibilities on the bank’s executive, loan and senior management committees.

“The institutional knowledge that Guillermo has is invaluable to our customers, to our bank and to our entire community,” says Dennis Nixon, IBC Bank chairman and CEO. “He is a dedicated and trusted resource for local and Mexican entrepreneurs and industries.”

At 78 years old, Garcia says he has no plans to retire just yet.
